Being born and brought up in India, I believe there is an extreme lack of opportunities for women in our community, mostly in rural India. According to this Unicef Report most of the women being forced to get married at the early age of 18. They are not allowed to go to school as their sole priority in life is to get married and raise a family. Fashionrevolution.org explains that 75 million people work in the fashion industry, 80% are women and most of them face verbal abuse, discrimination, and get low pay at work This injustice is what inspires me to break the stereotypes and work for a company that genuinely believes in the same cause and supports women.
Sewing underway at our factory partner in Hangzhou, China.
Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, the fashion industry needed change. Covid-19 has had a massive impact on the fashion industry. More and more people are becoming conscious about the quality of their things including where they come from and want to align our purchases with our values. Global we have seen how we are all connected.
To See ROSE Go it is important to provide dignified work to our team and factory workers, ensuring workers are appropriately paid, and working in a safe condition. We stand united in this positive movement for the global fashion industry and take measures to be more conscious about our choices and decisions.
As humanity re-sets what it means to be more aware of others and making kindness a priority - will we pay closer attention to where our clothing is coming from? I know I'll try! What are your thoughts on accessible plus size clothing made ethically? Let me know in the comments.
