Fashion Revolution Day (and a video)

May 14, 2015

This post has been sitting and waiting for me to write it, all content prepared, for several weeks now, since the 22nd of April to be exact. I've got so many posts, waiting and piled up all behind this one because I wanted it to be relevant (haha). Oh well, here it is, regular transmissions to begin soon after.

Last year I also blogged about Fashion Revolution Day, so I wanted to make it a little different this time. A few days before the 22nd I saw a new 'trend' circulating (I say 'trend' because only a handful of people were taking part). This trend was video haulternatives (alternative hauls) and I decided to jump the bandwagon and make my own video. If a picture tells a thousand words then this video aught to speak for itself. If you've ever wanted to know what I'm like in real life (why did you want to know this?), this should give you a good idea. I knew I was goofy but I didn't realise until I watched the footage back, I couldn't help but laugh at myself, but I think that's a good thing. You can also watch the whole thing here on YouTube, and get info on the brands behind all the clothes I mentioned.

It's hard to get across how much the whole day means to me, but I think it's really important that everyone takes more notice of where their clothes come from and how it affects people and planet. I feel like it should be second nature so I try not to be too evangelical about it.

  3. Ah! My friend and I were talking about this just the other day. She works in the fashion industry in Europe and did her thesis on ethical fashion so it was really refreshing having an in-depth discussion on this topic with someone who 'gets it'. There's actually a major department store here in Australia, David Jones, that recently made news by announcing that it aims to only stock products that are ethically sourced and produced. Which will be interesting considering they stock some pretty prominent brands. Looking forward to seeing if they can pull it off though.
