Pop Around Town : Ethical fashion: Part I

【明報專訊】The global fashion industry is frequently seen as an example of commerce sensitive to issues of exploitation. Often, women and children in developing countries are the main subjects of exploitation in garment manufacturing. As a response, the fashion industry regularly declares in advertisements and on runway shows how it supports "ethical fashion". It means that the industry has implemented new measures to monitor labour wages, working conditions, and gender-based exploitation found in sweatshops. In advertisements, the industry also shows support for women of colour and other gender-related "influencers", such as supporting the idea that the "plus-size" women are beautiful and sexy.
