Ethics in Fashion

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I realise that the term is pretty much a marketing tool these days, along with such irrelevancies as "organic" and "handmade".

I want this thread to be a broad and open-minded topic where people can discuss ethics in fashion, but also a one-stop-shop for people who want to know how brand x producers its clothing. A sorta RFT thread dedicated to the ethics side of clothing. Therefore, a non-exhaustive list of topics to pursue could be:

- the lines between factory and sweatshop
- minimum wages, globalisation, politics
- cultural appropriation of design
- animal welfare
- consumer responsibility
etc etc.

So I'll start us off with a question:

do you consider the clothing you own to be ethical? in terms of the sheer amount? the way it has been produced? and the money you've spent on it?

You've raised some very valid questions. Sadly, the truth is it is not feasible for a common man to know whether the clothing he is wearing has been produced in an unethical manner. I would like to draw your attention to Rana Plaza incident (2013).

Is this a college assignment or homework?
