CATWALK MATERIAL?

CATWALK MATERIAL?

Have you seen the documentary The True Cost?

It is a feature film creating conversation about our current fashion industry and it's inherent unsustainable foundation.

Focusing on the important topics of ;

* Our global environment being negatively impacted due to growing of GMO crops and hideous levels of toxic fashion waste

* The incredible mistreatment of human through slave labour and the creation of voiceless societies

* The creation of false western economies ~ the creation of 'cheap' goods making people feel wealthy when in fact they are enrolling in an endless purchasing habit which feeds only the capitalist on top

The film brings tears to my eyes multiple times through out.

The pictures of children being raised in factories.

Women having to give up their children in order to work for their survival.

People fighting (literally physically battling) to improve the living conditions of their communities and families.

The toxic waste created from factories pouring into our ecosystems.

The heartless waste of undervalued goods being dumped back in to the societies that made them.

It's so easy to forget about these images in the perfectly merchandised setting of a boutique.

But what if we didn't forget.

What if we remembered.  And kept these images front and centre when we're out shopping.  

What if we asked the simple yet incredibly important questions of ...

Where was this made?

Who made this?

How was it made?

Is this product created to last?

And if the answers don't satisfy.  Walk away ...

Together.  WE.  Have the potential to create a new world.

A creative world in which made products are ...

NEEDED.

LOVED.

VALUED.

CREATED IN A WAY THAT PROMOTES GOOD.
