NEW YORK — On September 14, The Oslo Freedom Forum and Remake will host “Wear Your Values,” an interactive fashion show and exhibition that puts a spotlight on ethical brands that work to advance human rights in the fashion industry.
The cocktail event will feature artistic representations of the life of a garment, from sourcing raw materials, to designing garments from recycled materials.
Guests will explore an installation of a Haitian cotton plantation recreated by BMF Media and Thread International, watch Remake’s footage on the day in the life of a garment worker, enjoy a weaving exhibition by Voz and experience a Slow Factory runway show featuring sportswear made from recycled denim. Through a curation of VR technology, art, photos and films, guests will experience the human rights impacts across the fashion supply chain.
Invited guests will also be able to purchase ethical products from presenting partners on Modavanti, including rugs from ARZU, Green Eileen from Eileen Fisher, sunglasses from DEAR LEADER, fragrances from Raw Spirit, menswear from Gustavo Moscoso.
Attendees will walk away from the event better informed about the human costs associated with “fast fashion” and will learn how to buy fashion that better reflects their values.
Other presenting partners include Fashion 4 Freedom, Indego Africa, Nest, There is No Limit Foundation, Thread International, TO THE MARKET and Voz, with additional support provided by Cordes Foundation, and Fashion Revolution.
Space is limited. Register here to attend.
