When it comes to the clothing we wear it's not just fashion we are looking for, it's just fashion.
I watched the The True Cost for the second time this weekend and honestly feel like I should have it playing on repeat. In fact, we all should! Educating ourselves around the injustices in the fashion industry is great way to ignite action. It allows us to connect with issues that otherwise feel so distant. The sooner we learn the true cost of fashion, the better.
The more I learn the more I am reminded of my purpose in fashion, to question the way things are being done and create a better way forward. In watching this documentary for the first time, I was so angered that we allow injustices to erode our communities and environment. We need to stay connected to these raw emotions, stay energized, and call for justice because when it comes to the clothing we wear it's not just fashion we are looking for, it's just fashion.
