Vote: Inspiring people to engage in politics through fashion
Think Act Vote is a campaign to
inspire people to think about what they believe in and how they use their vote
in the forthcoming election.
Think Act Vote founder, Amisha Ghadiali said: “If politics were a
fashion label, you wouldn’t wear it. We want to use creativity to create a
community around the choices we make for our future.”
In partnership with ethical fashion label Komodo, Think Act Vote
launches with a search for their carbon neutral Think Act Vote t-shirt from up
and coming designers, artists and illustrators. The only proviso is that the
design must include the words “Think Act Vote”. Submissions can be uploaded to
the Think Act Vote website before the deadline of 12 noon on Sunday 7th March.
An online public vote will determine a shortlist of 10 designs.
The winner will be decided by the Think Act Vote judging panel, made up of some
of the best-known faces in ethical fashion and design, including ethical hero
Katharine Hamnett, celebrated illustrator Daisy de Villeneuve and the original
‘anti-preneur’, Cyndi Rhoades.
Katharine Hamnett said, “Thousands of people have died and are
dying all over the world for the right to vote. It is one of our most precious
possessions. Use it before we loose it.”
The winning design will be announced at a launch party on March 25th.
The t-shirt will be produced by Komodo and will be available to purchase online
and in selected shops across the UK.
Runners-up will feature in a beautifully produced lifestyle book
alongside a creative anthology of people’s responses to one simple question,
designed to get people thinking about the positive choices we can make for our
future: “what’s the future you would choose”.
