NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO DIE FOR FASHION 🌏 we’re aware that this might not be the most gram-worthy photo but we don’t care- THIS IS THE REAL REASON we do what we do ! 🙌🏼 it’s been 5 years since the rana plaza disaster, in which 1,138 garment workers died and more than 2,500 injured. this week is @fash_rev week and we are asking you to question WHO made your clothes ? it’s time to start aligning your values with your actions and take responsibility as consumers to demand more transparency and a better quality of life for workers in the fashion industry globally ⚡️
i have posted quite long stories last evening (check if you haven’t) in order to raise a conversation why do we need to look into the @fash_rev movement. I believe that a change is going to happen, but it is not going to be easy in the capitalist mindset of ours..even since I started to take care of my purchases I obviously do not plan to throw away all my other clothes I bought before, since I wasn’t aware of the industry. Even more, it is not an easy move and it takes a lot of research and time! Today tho, I realised my sustainable oufit I have!
- @thedarlingamsterdam top that I got from also a sustainabilty fashion enthusiast @giedhre (miss you girl!)
- vintage kimono that I bought in Mauerpark, Berlin
- handmade necklace from Greece @bonvo_jewelry that was a present from @xrusa_nfr and another friend of mine
- @goodthingswillhappensoon earings produced in Berlin! Btw, this store is just one of the places to go if you are a Berliner or visiting Berlin! They carefully select (not sustainable necessarily though), but second hand fashion of those items that you know... you forgot in your wardrobe and resell them. Besides, they have this amazing jewellery brand. ( btw both men and women clothes and shoes). - for the reality check..i am actually wearing lee jeans and nike sneakers, which are not on the list at all, as I just own then from before. But just as second hand clothes they are in use already and purchased without the real answer for #whomademyclothes 🤷🏼♀️ 👖but the journey is long and it is step by step to the better. Is just as a habby, you cannot throw it all away and become the new you, we all do our own (personal) little mistakes ☀️ #fashionrevolutionweek#fashionrevolution

So let’s talk kids clothes...they are so cute and cheap and plentiful these days and kids grow so fast, how can we escape the nasty world of fast fashion? At our house we have been trying a combo of home sewn, thrifted and clothes from ethical makers such as @daughtersvisitorcentre but perhaps the biggest change has just been having less in the wardrobe. We still have to buy some things but it’s always good to remember we can make choices #fashionrevolution#slowfashionmovement#slowfashion#sewingforkids
Represented Fair Trade fashion today by donning this statement tee (@beadandreel) on the Rana Plaza anniversary. This tee sparked great conversation about Fair Trade fashion and the exploitation of the fast fashion industry. Spread awareness this #fashionrevolutionweek
I am so proud to be a part of #fashionrevolution week and this illustration from @kristenleo is just the question that we need to be asking! By providing slow, ethical fashion to our customers we really do feel like we are making a difference. You can feel good about wearing comfortable, adorable clothing that is made locally in Canada! 📷 @kristenleo
Linen bloomers, the most versatile item in your child's wardrobe wouldn't you agree? 😍

Taking a moment on the this day to remember the victims of the Rana Plaza garment factory collapse. It’s imperative to think of how we can do better - much better - & to remember that every choice we make has an impact. It is my mission to continue to ensure that our products are made in audited factories that pay fair wages. One of my long-term goals for this brand is to open our own atelier in a developing country, where we can monitor our own production and provide a great work environment where skills are cultivated & rewarded. Why a developing country and not a first-world country? Because that is where improvements need to be made most and standards need to change. Fashion can provide dignified work to empower people in developing countries but we must do our part to make this happen. ♥️

“The first time I became aware of the effects of fast fashion was through the documentary "@truecostmovie". Immediately after, I decided that I would no longer participate in the consumerist economy... except for @Zara. It took another 6 months and an article about workers leaving notes in the clothing asking for help, for me to decide to not be selfish anymore. ⠀
From then on, I only bought second hand and vintage clothing. Reduce, reuse, recycle. I found myself buying a lot less, having more unique pieces, and the quality was astoundingly better. I am slightly obsessed with @TheRealReal, because I find great second hand designer treasures like these @marcjacobs jeans for a reasonable price. ⠀
I also started researching brands that aligned with my ideals like @everlane and @reformation, but mostly focused on emerging designers who hand-make their products at a small scale. As an artist I always want to support other artists. ⠀
My latest favorite piece is this handbag by @Voltaatelier, which is hand-stitched by Brazilian artisans and made out of 100% up-cycled leather. What I really loved about the bag, is that each tag was signed by the artisan who made it. ⠀
After making this change, I found that I was taking myself accountable for all other consumerist behavior in my life. I switched all my products to organic and vegan, follow a plant based diet, compost, and take a mason jar with me everywhere to lower the amount of trash I create. By living this way, I've seen how it overflows into other people's lives. ⠀
When you care, other people care. Don't let yourself believe that you can't single-handedly make a difference, because I have without even trying.” — @stevilou
Thanks so much for visiting me on the weekend @markitfedsquare ! I had so much fun and sold out of some new pieces that I made just for the weekend! When you put a lot of work and heart into what you do, it means a lot when other people love the pieces too! Well done everyone.
This pic is from the interview I did with @woweepodcast in the lead up to the market. Give it a listen if you would like to hear more about the story behind my label in the spirit of #fashionrevolution and #whomademyclothes

Pom poms are tactile fluffly little creatures that deserve some arm loving wearing!!!!! They are made with the greatest of care in Thailand, I have seen no pom pom that can outbeat those made there. I get the shop local, but I'm supporting those people who make truly amazing craft. If you get one of these poms and brush it on your face it's like cuddling a kitten. 𓃭
If you asked us #whomademyclothes we could tell you. @sharifehamiri made the denim dungarees that never sees the shop floor because of their pre-order list. We could tell you, Sharifeh is a dressmaker with a bashful demeanour. Born in Afghanistan, she left home at the age of 6 because of the war. She schooled in Iran, learning embroidery, crocheting, knitting and cooking from her mother, as well as taking courses in flower arranging and tailoring. Expelled from Iran, her family spent 3 years in a UN refugee camp before moving to Australia in 2013. We could tell you that, she lives in Dandenong and after training on our Space2Fly program, she is passing her skills forward, in mentoring a community of South Sudanese women to sew. Do you know who made what you’re wearing?
We could also tell you, the dungarees are coming in corduroy soon. Shop is CLOSED today but come by tomorrow.

Today is the 5 year anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh. It became the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. There were five garment factories in Rana Plaza manufacturing clothes for big name fashion brands. More than 1,130 garment workers perished in this tragedy thousands who were injured! And most of the victims were young women.
Sseko is revolutionizing the way fashion products are made, bringing dignity and opportunity to the lives of those who create Sseko pieces. And we’ve taken the revolution one step further: we’re revolutionizing the way clothes are not just made, but sold, too!
This is a picture of my Sole Sister Florence. We are partners!! What she makes I sell, creating financial freedom for both of our families!
So, do you know who made your clothes?
I’m signing up with @sozoblog to participate in #MMMay18 for the first time - officially! I, Romy of dejaluxestyle.com and and @dejaluxe on Instagram, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '18. I endeavour to wear at least one self-made item of clothing each day of May 2018. I will pull out my old handmade things and sell them, finally, if I don’t wear them this month. I intend to document my participation as I've found that photos help me judge the success of my outfits. I will post somewhat sporadic updates about how my challenge is going and what I'm learning along the way. #sewersofinstagram#sewersgonnasew#diystyle#yesimadeit#slowfashionmovement#slowfashion

I'm so proud to be able to say @maxhellier and I now work exclusively with ethical and sustainable fashion brands. We've been lucky enough to work with some beauts since the beginning of this year. Im so in love with @aikyou_lingerie 's beautiful fair trade intimates made with organic cotton. They also use second hand cardboard boxing and recyclable packaging. 🙌🏻❤️ #FASHIONREVOLUTION#SLOWFASHION Stay tuned for @maxhellier and my full vegan fashion and food editorial featuring a whole bunch of vegan designers and eateries in Lucuma Issue 13

Today is Fashion Revolution Day. 👗💪🏽Today marks the 5th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse which killed 1.138 garment workers and injured many more. ⠀
Despite cracks in the building, workers were forced to come into work; anyone who refused was threatened they´d lose a month´s pay. The fast fashion industry is also the second most contaminating industry. 🏭
Today and the whole #fashionrevolutionweek is about demanding greater transparency in the fashion supply chain. ⠀
Since more than a year now, I extremely reduced my consumption and if I chose to buy, I buy from sustainable brands or second hand.
It is important to me to show the fashion industry that I care about the people and under which circumstances my clothes were made.⠀
So today I am joining the #fashionrevolution and am asking @sferaofficial#whomademyclothes ? #mindandseed#partoftherevolution#fairfashion#slowfashionmovement

kind of feeling this rainy monday we are having today ◯
The good folks at @bkflea just announced my Sashiko Mending Workshop at their indoor Industry City location on Saturday, June 16 in Brooklyn, NY. 🔹 I’m so excited for this opportunity to teach mending, Sashiko stitching, and Slow Fashion alongside their amazing flea market vendors. Space is limited for this class, so do be sure to sign up soon. This will be my most intimate, big city workshop ever so we’ll have lots of time for individual consultations. 🔹 We’ll have our own booth and class runs from 1-4:30 but the flea market is open 10-5 so come early to browse some beautiful vintage garments that might even need a little serendipitous mending in class. 🔹 As of today, this is my last standalone afternoon mending workshop in NY in 2018. This summer I’m teaching several multi-day retreats and a natural dye workshop, but this is your chance to stitch and mend with me for just an afternoon in NYC. 🔹 Details and link to tickets available in my profile today or through this page on my website: 🔹Grab a friend and come browse the booths, use your expert flea market intuition to find a garment that needs a little mending, and spend the afternoon Sashiko stitching, repairing, and musing on all things NYC Slow Fashion with me. I cannot wait. 🔹👖🏙💙 #brooklynflea

I dag er det Fashion revolution day. I dag for 5 år siden raste Rana Plaza og 1134 personer døde og 2500 ble skadet. De jobbet i klesindustrien...
Hva har skjedd med verden? I vår levetid? Hvem skulle trudd at verden er så skjevfordelt at det går utover liv og helse for klesindustriarbeidere og lokalsamfunnet når andre kjøper billige klær som ofte ikke blir brukt? Man skulle tru det var for brutalt til å være sant i vår tid. Men det er det ikke. .
Dette er vår levetid. Og vi kan alle bidra for å gjøre en forskjell. @fash_rev er en bevegelse for å få bedre vilkår for de som jobber i klesindustrien og øke bevisstheten til forbrukerne. Det er en fashion revolution👊Hvem lager klærne våre? Hvilke forhold har de? Får de en lønn de kan leve av? Blir lokalsamfunnet tatt vare på?
I følge @framtidenivarehender går 0,6% av det en tskjorte koster til lønn til tekstilarbeider. Det burde absolutt endres på. Hvis alle ledd i klesindustrien tar ansvar, det inkluderer forbrukere som meg og deg, blir det mye bedre. Det blir bedre lønn, bedre arbeidsforhold, bedre sikkerhet og bærekraftig miljø🌱
Historiebøkene er fulle av katastrofer og katastrofen om Rana Plaza er en påminnelse om at klesindustrien trenger bedre vilkår. Og det kan vi gjøre noe med ved å være bevisste og si at nok er nok. Jeg drømmer om en verden der klær ikke inneholder dårlig samvittighet ♡
This week is Fashion Revolution week, the biggest week in ethical fashion where we ask brands #whomademyclothes. It falls on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1138 people with many more injured on 24th April 2013. 👚👕👖👗 This week remember that YOU reshape the fashion industry, the lives of its workers and producers every time you buy or dispose of a garment. YOU have the power to influence change not only for yourself, but for others too ✨
Will you get involved? #ethicallyengaged
seriously have never loved my clothing more since i made the choice to invest in ethically/sustainably made pieces➰ worth every single penny and plus who doesn’t like helping the earth
