Fashion Revolution 2022

19—April 2022

It's Fashion Revolution Week and our teams across New Zealand and Australia are getting involved to amplify the campaign for transparency within clothing and textile supply chains, asking #WhoMadeMyClothes?

Apr 19 2022

Fashion Revolution Week is an annual campaign bringing together the world’s largest fashion activism movement for seven days of action. This year's theme is Money Fashion Power! It's no secret that the mainstream fashion industry is built upon the exploitation of labour and natural resources. Wealth and power are concentrated in the hands of a few, and we know that both people and nature are paying the price of the fashion industry’s unregulated exploitation and waste. We believe bringing conversations around these issues into the light will lead to better transparency within the fashion industry, more thoughtful purchasing decisions from consumers, and increasing awareness of the effects on those who work in the industry, as well as the impacts of overconsumption on the planet.

Learn more about our sustainable philosophy here.

We're huge supporters of home sewing and the #MeMade movement! The experience of sewing an item of clothing by hand teaches us the true value of a ready-to-wear garment and gives us an understanding of the skill of all workers involved in its production.

In celebration of Fashion Revolution Week our teams across New Zealand and Australia have been sharing a bunch of wonderful #MeMade creations with us! We hope this inspires you to take action by asking your favourite brands #WhoMadeMyClothes, #WhoMadeMyFabric and #WhatsInMyClothes?
