It might seem like an unlikely route into ethical fashion, but my geography BA has been heavily structured around goegraphies of consumption and production. so over the past 3 years i have developed a wide understanding of the issues surrounding fashion production, consumption and disposal, from economic, social and environmental perspectives.
I am now in love with all things ethical, and I'm currently in the process of converting my wardrobe into a totally ethical affair- through shopping, swapping and re-styling my old bits and pieces found lurking at the back of my wardrobe.
I am in the porcess of applying to several masters in ethical fashion, but I am really keen to find out more about the early stages of ethical fashion production and see this in situ.
I am extreemly independent having travelled alone many times before, and would love an oppertunity to vistit an ethical, fair trade, environmentally sustainable production site over the summer.
Please let me know if you know of any oppertunities!
