Student Take Over

We’re very excited about the Student Take Over of the next issue of the Ethical Rebel Magazine.

The theme is Superheroes = those who do what’s right in the face of adversity.

Our topics are: pollution, especially plastics; the role of vintage, charity shop and secondhand clothing; and modern day slavery in the fashion industry.

Brands tackling these ethical fashion issues will feature in a double page spread.

Students will provide all the imagery – illustrations, photography and videos – as well as setting up the layout and creating a few garments of their own.

Written work can be submitted by anyone.

Student Take Over graffitti over Ethical Rebel magazine

Ethical Rebel magazine

ETHICAL REBEL is a fashion magazine for those care as much about people and the planet as they do about amazing clothes.

Some of the exciting ethical fashion brands we’ve featured so far are:

The magazine also looks at how the fashion industry is tackling ethical issues. We particularly focus on finding answers to the following problems:

  • wage slavery (sweatshops and trafficking in the supply chain);
  • pollution and its impact on the environment;
  • how we can support ethical fashion brands competing against big brands selling cheap at a high cost to garment workers and the environment;
  • mountains of clothes that go into landfill
  • the collapse of local fashion industries
  • over sexualisation of under age models
  • only portraying role models as young, slim, perfect, white, wealthy and sexy
