Hey Everyone, we are super excited to get into the workshop series with you all this Saturday! Here is the lowdown on the event xx.
The Fashion Revolution is a global movement that promotes transparency, ethical practice and sustainability throughout the fashion industry. The movement aims to show that change is possible and encourages those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion.
Fashion Revolution Week runs from the 23rd to 29th of April, a week where consumers and brands alike, are encouraged to think about and ask, who made my clothes?
