Fashion Revolution Week: Katharine Hamnett

Designer and activist, Katharine Hamnett talks us through 30 years’ experience of building a sustainable and conscious brand – from source to store - while simultaneously campaigning for social, environmental and political changes.

Fashion Revolutionaries, a partnership between the British Council and Fashion Revolution, is a global programme - now in its second year - that spotlights individuals working from within the fashion industry advocating for vital changes to be made towards a more responsible and sustainable future for all. For Fashion Revolution Week, 22 – 28 April 2019, we created a series of mini-films to discuss the effects of the fashion industry with 3 London based Fashion Revolutionaries who introduce us to their methods and processes. Challenging the status quo within the fashion industry and carving new, industrious ways of creating clothing, encouraging us all to become more aware of our impact and how to utilise creativity and craft to counteract the damage we’ve been inflicting for so long, to both people and planet.
