How Fashion Can Change Live
Fashion+ is a DfID funded, Ethical Fashion Forum project aimed at reducing poverty and creating sustainable livelihoods in the supply chains to the UK fashion industry.
The fashion industry remains one of the most exploitative in the world, both to people and the environment. Inhuman working conditions, poverty wages and shocking environmental damage are widespread. Yet fashion is uniquely placed, as a labour intensive industry, to change lives and lift communities out of poverty.
The goal of the Fashion+ project is to integrate training on development, poverty reduction and sustainable livelihood creation as a core part of all fashion business training in the UK. The project brings together fashion support organisations and training bodies and will include a series of training events supported by resources.
