Behind the label

As I started in my last post ethical slow fashion is a growing movement. Behind the label is the UK contribution to this awareness raising campaign. The link above will take you to the home page of this ethical organisation linking you directly to the issues of making clothes and fashion in a global economy.
I think that this is something that we all should be thinking about as the era of fast cheap clothing is rapidly coming to the end.
As fashion designers we should be proud and strive to produce beautifully designed, ethically sourced, fashion that will last more than a Saturday night, before being binned or at best dumped in a clothing bank.
Hmm maybe we need to start and support a "Made in Scotland" campaign.......
