#whomademyclothes magazine is the first in the Cornwall College Student Take Over series and focuses on the people involved in the fashion industry supply chain. There are infographics and a potted history, a quick guide to the time it takes and the risks garment workers face, plus great guest articles from Ethical Business Buddy Jo Salter and Sustainable Deeds Didi Aben.
We also check out the certificates and apps to look out for when buying clothes to ensure brands respect and value their workers. We feature 3 brands who have broken free from slavery: Nomads Clothing, Where Does It Come From? and A Story In T-Shirts.
Student Take Over
Nearly 50 young people at Cornwall College took part in the Student Take Over of the Issue 02 series of Ethical Rebel. These magazines tackle the issues of:
02A = slavery (#whomademyclothes magazine)
02B = pollution
02C = textile waste
With guidance from award winning photographer Sarah Brittain-Edwards, students did make up and hair, modelled for us and took the photos for our brand features and covers.
