Who Made My Clothes?
The fashion revolution is a movement to help you become conscious about the conditions in which folks create your clothes, and to provide them with fair wages so that they can live a good life. I also like to throw in my thrifting and sustainable finds. Why not just be good all the way around? I chose this ensemble to share for the fashion revolution because I do know where half of it was made, and the other half was thrifted. It is still beautiful and affordable.
On April 24, 2015 – Fashion Revolution Day (see the instagram @fash_rev and #fashrev), we are asking all companies, “Who made my clothes?” Who makes your clothes at Zara, Wal Mart, Target (mmmhmm, you Lily Lovers haha =), Forever 21, etc.? Are they paid fair wages? Post a picture of your clothes today and ask, #whomademyclothes
Dress – purchased for $25 from an antique mall. It was created several years ago so the reuse of this article of clothing means no new clothing needed to be created for this look.
