We start our community blog with a short update on what we are doing during the commemorative days of the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh. From the 18th to 24th April, people across the globe joined forces to show their support for the families of the 94 victims that lost there lives during the collapse of the clothing manufacturing factory in 2013 and we were no exception. On the 23rd April, exactly 3 years on from the disaster we channelled some of the global grieving into a cause that will hopefully have a more small, yet positive impact on the way young people in particular purchase and value fashion within the future.
Over the next few months we'll be exploring and creating alternatives to the 'Fast Fashion' model through recycling and repurposing textiles waste into cool garments that express and share collective concerns on todays teen issues. For more information, check out our forthcoming Teen Fashion Activists posts to see what the talented group of young girls got up to.
