Series on Ethical Fashion

I’ve been meaning to write this post about ‘ethical fashion’ for more than a year, but it has felt impossible to begin. Ethical fashion is elusive – it has been talked about so frequently over the past two decades and yet it seems that very little has actually been said. It is now more than twenty years since the global protests were held against Nike for their use of sweatshop labour and two years since the tragic collapse of Rana Plaza in Bangladesh. Although calls for more ethical practices by clothing manufacturers are getting louder, it is difficult to figure out what exactly has improved in this time.
