Who Made My Clothes?

Who Made My Clothes?The last three years have seen some of the largest profits on record for clothing brands, alongside some of the most catastrophic disasters in the history of garment production.

Spurred into action by the increasing death toll of garment factory disasters, director Andrew Morgan, brought together stories of people suffering under the pressure of the 80 billion garments we consume every year. His film, The True Cost is an incredibly powerful and moving insight into the effects of the fashion industry on the environment and the people across our world.
