Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
My vision is for a Nigerian Fashion Industry that values people and planet in equal measure and produces minimal waste
It's all part of making a better world.
Our clothes will be sourced, produced and purchased in a better way, the people who make them and the resources used to make them will be transparently accounted for and valued equally. Clothes will be made to last and the design process will focus on circularity and sustainability.
The fashion industry will become a force for good and not an exploitative one
An end to overproduction and overconsumption
This is really going to help people.
Practically everyone who consumes fashion and everyone who works in the fashion industry
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
A more sustainable fashion industry
Lessened negative impact on the environment
Well made clothes become standard not privilege
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
No more fast fashion
Clothes are valued more and not seen as disposable items
Living wage is paid to garment workers
Preservation and respect of heritage and culture
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
