The British Library held an event last night as part of London Fashion Week to explore the links between ecology, fair trade, sustainability and fashion. I’m sure it was very interesting. I missed it. Turned up in time for the mini fish and chips in a tiny newspaper cone and the drinks.
“People are being trained by the media to be perfect consumers of mass manufactured rubbish”.
“Because fashion is so indicative of the political and social climate in which we live, what we wear will always be a symptom of our environment.” Alexander McQueen.
