WHAT
The Re-dress Better Fashion Initiative is an organisation dedicated to promoting better fashion practice. 

BETTER FASHION
Better Fashion is aesthetically and creatively inspiring. It is eloquent in its design, articulated by the skill and craftsmanship with which it is made.
Better Fashion is environmentally respectful. It acknowledges the limitations of our world’s resources and embraces the challenge to create within those boundries.
Better Fashion endeavours to be ethically manufactured, respectful of the rights of all involved in its creation.
Better Fashion is measured by its merits, not its profit margins and it starts with you.

Friday, May 13th, 2011

World Fair Trade Day 2011Tomorrow is World Fairtrade Day – celebrating the Good News Story that is Fairtrade.  In spite of economic crisis and media doomsday prophecies, it’s so important to be reminded that our shopping choices make a massive difference to people’s lives and livelihoods at home & abroad – shop local where available, shop Fairtrade. We really need more information on packaging on who makes our stuff.
