Remaking the Fashion Industry
When buying your clothes, how often do you think about where it came from? It doesn’t always mean the store you purchased it from: Do you know if the women who made your shirt receiving a fair living wage? Are they empowered? What resources are being used to produce your inexpensive shirts and jeans?
Remake is an organization of fashion enthusiasts, designers, and researchers working to create a better life for the women who make our clothes by going beyond the label. In September, Remake sent fashion design students from Parsons and California College of the Arts to Sri Lanka to meet the human production behind the fast fashion industry and telling their stories.

Remake also took over New York Fashion Week this past year, supporting ten slow fashion brands in one of the largest fashion capitals of the world. And they continue to educate consumers by distributing handy guides explaining why fast fashion is out, and slow fashion is in.
