The True Cost of Fashion exhibition

BIO

I am an creative individual that has a passion for interior design. I chose De Montfort University as I wanted to learn more and become a better designer at one of the best schools of design.

 

During my work placement at Callender Howorth. I was able to learn different sides of design such as technical drawings, project management, client meetings and quality control.

 

My work placement ensured a solid foundation for me to learn and develop a better understanding of interior design based on a clients needs. This made me more project focused and I learnt the importance of a clients desires.

 

Living in London during my placement made me aware of issues such as a fair wage which influenced me to think about my final major project.

The aim of the True Cost of Fashion exhibition was to show consumers to be more aware of the issues involved in fast fashion and to try and look at alternative environmentally friendly brands like peoples tree or BAM clothing. 

 

I want to shock my audience and hopefully, get them to change the way they shop. To get a sense of humanity before a product and a global awareness of what workers in sweatshops go through so we can wear affordable clothing. 

 

The issue with fast fashion is that it is not sustainable. Environmentally the process of making the garments. Fabrics need to be washed and dyed which in turn causes pollution to the drinking water supply of the local community as there are very limited health and safety regulations.
