Project

  • Ethical Fashion - Strengthening the Fair Labour and Environmental Approach

    • DatesMar 2010 - Mar 2011
    • Project #RAF/39/04A
     

    Project objective

    • To raise the awareness of the international fashion community on the benefits and qualities integrating recycled materials in their productions. This will be achieved by collaborating with an international designer, Ilaria V. Fendi, who has a strong ecological commitment and heads an ethical fashion label, Carmina Campus. With her, we will launch a recycling programme in the Korogocho dumpsite. This programme will help to incite designers and fashion companies to use recycling as a new way to develop products with a positive and/or less damaging impact on the environment. • To formalise the ITC's Ethical Fashion project activities in terms of fair labour and environmental standards. Given the rapid growth of the project, there is a need to involve experts from the field (environment and labour) in order to assess and to build remediation plans for every stage in the production process of ethical fashion goods.
