Fashion Revolution

As we return to lockdown in the UK and many other nations face similar restrictions, we need to take care of ourselves and one another. Yet too often, mindless consumption is confused for self care, when the data suggests that quick wins at the checkout don’t make for a lasting mood booster.

Today, we’re sharing research from Greenpeace, initially published in our #LovedClothesLast fanzine, to zoom in on the psychology of the impulse buy.

The US Election: What’s at Stake for Fashion?

"But perhaps more than any specific policy point, what’s at stake in Tuesday’s election is a return to political norms after years of Trump’s turbulent and, at times, incoherent leadership style. For the fashion industry, which relies on discretionary spending for purchases that are largely emotionally-driven, a Biden victory could buoy consumer confidence by eliminating the psychological weight of the Trump administration’s chaotic approach to governance." #vote #fashionistolove

The outcome of a highly contentious presidential race in a deeply polarised superpower has significant implications for the global fashion industry.

Can the stain of forced and child labour be removed from cotton?

"America’s Department of Labour lists 17 countries believed still to use forced or child labour in their cotton industries. Miscreants span the globe, from Argentina to Egypt to China. "

Ensuring that cotton clothing comes from ethical producers is more difficult than it seems

#FairTradeMonth

#FairTradeMonth

Cotton is one of the most highly volatile commodity crops in the world, causing price fluctuations yearly and negatively impacting communities when the price dips too greatly.

Enter: #FairTrade. The system is designed to ensure that producers will always get a minimum price. Additionally, there will always be a premium paid for the product, which specifically goes into a community development fund.

The graph above exemplifies the fair trade minimum price and premium price at work. When the market fluctuates too low, producers are guaranteed at least $0.50 per pound of cotton. Even when the market price is high, the producer is guaranteed a premium. These premiums go into community development funds that can be used to support workers and their communities.

A must-read article to self-reflect on labor and justice in the fashion industry as we try to build a sustainable future. #Fashionistolove

Must-read article from gal-dem.com with testimonies from Leicester workers👇

“At one point there was a fire in the night and the roof collapsed in but they were still told to carry on working”

“You were being watched all the time, constantly being told to work faster, and the pay was shocking.”

Exploitation & illegal wages found in Boohoo's supply chain exploit deprivation & racial inequality.

Brands & government must protect workers from abuse & ensure that they are paid. #PayYourWorkers

Fashion’s $16 Billion Debt To Garment Workers Should Spark Reform, Not Sympathy

"A new report, 'Unpaid Billions,' co-authored by the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC) and the Penn State Center for Global Workers’ Rights, draws on U.S. and European apparel import data to illuminate the grim toll of big brands’ unethical dealings during the pandemic."

New research showing apparel brands owe billions for orders placed before the pandemic should spark corporate reforms, not just sympathy for garment workers.

There’s more, but...we ran out of room. 😫🤷‍♀️

When it comes to fast fashion, the negative impact it has on the environment and communities of Black and Brown people goes on, and on, and on.

Cheap fashion comes at a high cost that isn’t on the price tag, but someone somewhere is paying. While we love a good deal, that $5 dress just isn’t worth it if you have the privilege to shop more sustainably.

Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. Comment below what clothing comforts you!

The pandemic's economic effects are already reflected in quantitative data — an increase in poverty and disparity. Seeing the pandemic's impact on the way we think and feel is more challenging as they are not directly reflected through numbers. As our daily lives change considerably through limited social interaction, remote work or study, and anxiety about what is next, starting a conversation focusing on mental health is crucial. #fashionistolove

Fashinnovation- Our Story

Marcelo & Jordana Guimaraes – husband and wife – are the founders of FASHINNOVATION. Marcelo has been in the entrepreneurial ecosystem throughout his life, always dealing with enterprises incorporating innovations and technology. Jordana has been in the fashion industry, in the marketing and public relations department.

When Marcelo presented a thought to Jordana of developing an event to assemble a group of diverse entrepreneurs to inspire via panel talks, and followed it up with one simple question: “Would it make sense to mix enterprises and technology with the world of fashion?”. With where Fashion is headed today, Jordana jumped at the opportunity to share ideas with him, which in turn launched FASHINNOVATION.

We mix traditional enterprises with fashion tech startups & emerging brands

FASHINNOVATION is a multi-media platform where Fashion, Technology & Entrepreneurship merge via conversations/discussions on various themes including design, sustainability, manufacturing, etc. The conversations begin at full-day panel events which are held during NYFW (New York Fashion Week) and continue through the platform. We connect entrepreneurship, innovation & technology within the fashion industry.

I’m trying to get my refund about 3 weeks already and after all messages ignored on Instagram and Facebook finally they answered giving me an email to get my refund. So I texted JORDANA 3 weeks ago and the only answer I had was “ you will receive your refund as COURTESY “ and nothing happened. It is not courtesy when the company answered me saying that YES I COULD HAVE MY REFUND AFTER THE EVENT. Also I may have it after the event... the event was in 4th September and we are almost in October!!!! Jordana keep saying it is a courtesy and I could understand if she told me this in my first question on Instagram. I didn’t want to spend my time trying to sell it to someone else because they told me I COULD HAVE MY REFUND RIGHT AFTER THE EVENT. I’m not trying to have my refund knowing I can’t. I’m trying basing it from the company words. They are ignoring me now because I ask a phone number to call and solver the problem.
