When I first started doing Fair Trade fashion 7 years ago, it was a time when it was difficult to source organic cotton, it wasn’t fashionable to op shop and up-cycling fashion was not a thing.

For example, now we have the following sustainability organisations paving the way for a more ethical fashion industry: Good On You: Is an ethical rating fashion app that rates clothing and accessories on their level of goodness. It gives power to the the customer, who...

It's heart warming how huge the Fashion Revolution movement has become. It honors those within the fashion industry whom have been exploited, especially those who suffered due to the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1138 people and injured many more on 24th April 2013. It was that day the the Fashion Revolution was born.
