PRESS RELEASE 16.2.17:

Will you find a Mini Fashion Statement in your pocket this April?

As the world remembers the Rana Plaza disaster on 24 April, the Craftivist Collective will be launching a new craftivism kit to make and gently challenge people to think about how their clothing is made.

The collapse of a Bangladeshi factory in 2013 saw 1,138 garment workers killed and over 2,500 injured. There had been signs of structural failure the previous day, but workers were ordered to return to work regardless.

The Mini Fashion Statements kit is being launched in support of Fashion Revolution, a global movement born in the wake of the disaster, which calls for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry.

The kit feature small scrolls on which makers all over the world are encouraged to write – slowly and in their neatest handwriting on their own or in groups – one of three provocative but not preachy messages designed to get both writer and reader thinking about the true cost of fashion and inspire them to play their part in improving the ugly side of the industry.

Shop-droppers not shop-lifters

The finished scrolls, tied with a pretty bow and featuring an invitation to “please open me”, a smiley face and a kiss, can then be ‘shop-dropped’ into the pockets of garments in fashion stores, or clothes worn by family, friends and colleagues.

This deliberately non-confrontational form of ‘guerilla activism’ using handcrafts is a designed as an alternative to some the more traditional aggressive types of activism.

Sarah Corbett, founder of the Craftivist Collective, said: “We help people learn the art of ‘gentle protest’. We want every part of the fashion industry to be beautiful, not just the clothes. Our pocket-sized scrolls are powerful and poignant little reminders of the role we can play as consumers. They’re designed to make us think about how the clothes we buy and wear are made, and how we might be able to help tackle problems like poor conditions for workers or the use of materials that are damaging to the environment.”

Asking #whomademyclothes

Orsola de Castro, co-founder and Creative Director of Fashion Revolution, said: “We want to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased, so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.

“The Craftivist Collective’s Mini Fashion Statements are a really simple, fun and creative way to be part of the Fashion Revolution. Made with love and placed into a pocket on a store’s clothes rail, they surprise shoppers with a message that reminds us to be more curious about our clothes.

“They may be small, but they have the power to make shoppers stop and consider the people who make our clothes, their working conditions and human rights issues. This shows that activism doesn’t need to shout from the rooftops, it can gently provoke from our pockets!”

The Mini Fashion Statement kits were pioneered by Sarah during workshops at Stockholm Fashion Week and Helsinki Design Week, and are the first non-stitched Craftivist Collective project. Sarah will be holding further workshops in London and Lincoln in early April to introduce people to the kits and teach them how to do ‘shop drops’ to distribute their mini fashion statements.

Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries!

Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries!

Life is just a bowl of cherries
Don’t take it serious; it’s too mysterious
You work, you save, you worry so
But you can’t take your dough when you go, go, go

Summer Boho collection

Summer Boho collection

This crochet top combines a lovely crocheted bodice and a beautiful ochre patterned cotton. Sometimes I find a fabric and know that someday I’ll have the perfect fashion in mind I want to create from it. This was one of those fabrics.

As you can see, it easily fits different body sizes and looks great on all of them ; ).

———————————–

Dear friends,

the warmer days have begun and summer feelings are back : ). Time to show you my new fashion collection! I’m still in love with the Boho fashion trend and you’ll find lots of lovely designs, including two of my favourite pieces, two Kimono jackets!
As always, I try to make fashions that are highly compatible with fashions you already have, so you’ll find cute shorts and fantastic shirts, too. I’d love to hear which designs are your favorites ; )!
And for the first time, I’m offering Fashions for the Curvy Barbie body – modelled by my adorable Luna.

May all your summer days be sunny and your spirits stay wild and free…

Ladies at Cairns Amateurs

Took a day off work to enjoy a day at the races. Of course most of the action is when the horses aren’t racing.
