OUTRAGE | Don't Mention The Garment Workers

A misconception about people who love and/or work in fashion is that they are permissive to the infringement of human rights for the sake of luxurious and indulgent garments. Wrong. The activist group, War on Want, hung a banner on the Waterloo Bridge at the beginning of London Fashion Week brought fashion week show-goers to voice their opinion on the wearying issue of sweatshops.

In addition to the banner, fashion writer and activist, Tansy E Hoskins, caught fashionistas attending shows expressing their opinion on the matter. With the recent Primark tag hoax, a push for fair trade certainly reminded designers and brands to emphasise social-corporate responsibility, and this may quicken more ethical practices within the production process of fashion.
