Today marks the beginning of Fashion Revolution Week where the spotlight is cast on Who Made My Clothes?
At The Elegant Executive Curve we proudly feature on every swing tag who lovingly made your clothes. Our clothes are made by artisans who care about creating quality garments that will last and that you feel wonderful wearing. We are proud of our artisans and the skills they have developed - many over their lifetime.
Did you know in many offshore workshops the women (and girls) in the production line sew the same seam on a garment day in and day out and then pass it to the next in line who sews the next seam, they do not know, nor are they trained in how to construct a full garment from start to finish - this disempowers them, it means they cannot go and start their own businesses, it keeps them trapped on the production line! Responsible production and fashion is more than just paying a 'living' wage...
In Australia 92% of garments sold are made overseas! Yet there are many men and women here that have valuable needlework skills who cannot make a living from them. We are passionate about changing this by making these wonderful people visible and promoting and supporting their skills.
When you buy a garment from us, you will know who made it, it's on our tag, and we love them for it ❤️
To Your Success!
