Slave to Fashion explores and exposes modern slavery in the fashion industry with text, graphics and photos. Safia Minney shows us how exploitation can be eradicated by business and consumers.
Slave to Fashion is made up of interviews and micro-documentaries with the men, women and children caught in slavery, making the clothes sold on our high streets, in Europe and the developing world.
It will also profile best practice of brands and designers within the fashion industry to prove that slave-free fashion is achievable and fashion can be used to empower workers - whilst creating beautiful, competitive and accessible fashion.
From 2015, the Modern Slavery Act requires medium to large-sized companies to report on what they are doing to eradicate slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains. If not, they need to declare it.
