“This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them and the impact it has on our world.”
This powerful film explores the issues of an industry built on exploitation: from the cotton production and garment workers producing clothes to the impact it is having on the environment and culture. It makes us ask questions about our consumption and challenges all we thought we knew about the industry.

Following the film we have an exciting panel to engage in conversation with:
– Lucy Siegle (Co-Executive Producer of True Cost, journalist, and chair of the panel)
– Anna McMullen (Labour Behind the Label)
– Amy Hulme (Living Wage Foundation)
– Subindu Garkhel (Cotton Manager at the Fairtrade Foundation)
This is a fundraising event and all proceeds will go to Labour Behind the Label – a campaign supporting garment workers worldwide.
