The ‘Mermaid’ Print

created for Fashion Revolution Week 2019

all profits to Fashion Revolution

The Mermaid print is a siren call to think more about where our clothes come from and the impact they are having on the environment, the planet. Since the birth of my son, making conscious and ethical choices about the clothes I wear has become even more important. He is the future and we need to forge new paths of sourcing fashion.

“On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. 1,138 people died and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. Thats when Fashion Revolution started.

Your voice can change everything.

Since Fashion Revolution started, people from all over the world have used their voice and their power to tell brands that things must change. And it’s working. The industry is starting to change.More brands are being open about where their clothes are made. More manufacturers are making their factories safer. More producers are being seen and heard.

But the story is far from over. We are only just getting started. We can’t stop until every garment worker who makes the clothes we love is seen, heard, paid properly and working in safe conditions. Your voice does make a difference. We need to make this Fashion Revolution Week bigger and bolder than ever before. Ask brands #whomademyclothes?”
