Hello fellow tutors
An exciting opportunity has come up for a recent graduate to work with Mumo, an ethical fabric supplier who are developing a range of homeware products. It would be great if you could circulate to all your contacts and graduates.

Applicants need to follow a design brief to apply and the chosen designer would work with Mumo from May - July, two days a week, £8/hour.

Please see the TED blog ( for more info and how graduates can apply.

2) 55% Hemp / 45% Organic Cotton Jersey - 5oz = 2 metres for £18.60 - i will discount to £16.74

There is information about fashion related courses that cover, to some extent, social, environmental and other sustainability or ethical issues. The information there is not an exhaustive list but hopefully it will be of interest. If you know of fashion-related courses that should be included here, please do let us know.

Fashioning an Ethical Industry is a Labour Behind the Label project that works with students and tutors on fashion related courses to give a global overview of the garment industry, raise awareness of current company practices and of initiatives to improve conditions, and inspires students - as the next generation of industry players - to raise standards for workers in the fashion industry of the future.

We run student workshops, organise tutor training events, provide teaching resources and work with tutors to integrate ethical issues related to garment manufacture into their teaching. The ultimate objective of the project is to embed social responsibility issues in the teaching of all fashion related further and higher education courses.

Birmingham City University
Ethical issues relating to fashion are embedded within our curriculum from the use of fairtrade fabrics to offshore manufacturing. This has included a number of students whose ethical designs are already in production before they have graduated.

I am really happy to hear from other individuals and organisations.

News from... Northumbria University...Since the appointment of Doug Miller as the Inditex/ITGLWF Chair in Ethical Fashion, Fashion staff in the Design School have continued to mainstream ethical and sustainable fashion across the curriculum. All First Year students on our Undergraduate programmes: Fashion Design, Fashion Marketing and Fashion Communication collaborate on a multidisciplinary exercise to develop design, sourcing, marketing ,and launch concepts for an ethical T Shirt. Our sewing room provides an opportunity for students to understand ethical issues related to manufacturing in quantity. Modules in Design Realisation and Communication address sustainability and ethical fashion head on. At postgraduate level a discrete module on ethical fashion on our new MA in Fashion Management and Entrepreneurship at our London satellite gives students an opportunity to explore these issues in greater depth. Research in the School is fostered by our Responsible Design Practice Group and currently covers such areas as barriers and drivers in the use of recyclable materials in UK High Street Fashion, Sustainability Interventions in India’s Rural Craft Industry, social labelling, systems for sustainable social compliance beyond factory auditing; social compliance in Sportswear, and wage determination in the global fashion industry.
