Fashion is often associated with glamour and style, but it is important to remember that behind the clothes we wear are real people who work hard to make them.
Garment workers are an essential part of the fashion industry, and their rights and well-being should be a top priority for everyone involved in the production and consumption of clothing.
The human element in fashion is often overlooked or ignored, but it is crucial to remember that behind every piece of clothing and textile product is a person with rights and dignity. Manufacturing workers are entitled to the same basic human rights as everyone else, including the right to fair wages, safe working conditions, and the ability to unionise and organise for their rights.
By supporting fair fashion brands and demanding greater transparency and accountability from the fashion industry, we can work towards a future where fashion is not just beautiful, but also more regenerative and equal.
