The only option is to figure out what style and what fabric to whip them up in......

Fashion Revolution: Who made my clothes/ I made my clothes

I hadn't heard about fashion revolution until April when I was asked to take part in fashion revolution week.
In a nutshell, it's about transparency within the fashion industry and asking companies and brands "Who made my clothes?".
 The reality of it is that very few brands really know who is making their clothes and the real people behind the manufacture process. Fashion revolution wants to change this and are encouraging everyone to turn their clothes inside out to show the garments label, take a photograph and then uploading it to Instagram and other social media sites, tagging the brand and asking them "who made my clothes?".



Marks and Spencer recently became transparent and amother company called Honest By also show where there clothes are made and breaks down the entire cost of each item - this company really is worth checking out- talk about eye opening!
But wait....
