Who made your clothes? Auckland – Nelson

Unstitched seminars

Have you ever wondered who made your clothes, how much they’re paid, and what their lives are like? If not, start asking! Fashion Revolution week is almost upon us, and a range of events around the country will challenge to ask  brands #whomademyclothes and demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain

Fashion Revolution centres around the anniversary on 24 April of the horrific collapse of Rana Plaza in Bangladesh where more than 1130 garment workers lost their lives and over 2500 people were injured.

New Zealand activists are gearing up for a range of events, from Auckland to Dunedin. If you’re organising something, please let us know via the comments.

 When & where

11am – 3pm, 24 April 2018

Ponsonby Rd, between Western Park and Three Lamps, Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand

 Why    

We believe that small acts can lead to systematic change. We also believe that transparency in the clothing industry matters and, like fashionrevolution.org, that a great first step towards change is asking ‘who made my clothes?’Our CARE, ASK, KNOW Ribbon Share is aimed to begin, continue or develop small conversations (on the footpath and beyond) about the bigger issues of valuing textile and garment makers, demonstrating transparency in the supply chain and caring about environmental impacts of clothing manufacture and purchase.

Hosted in conjunction with Fashion Revolution Day Aus NZ, and the larger global movment fashionrevolution.org. Join us in this small act towards making change to the outdated models and mindsets in the global fashion industry.
