Who Made Your Clothes

"Child labour in the fashion industry is a prevalent issue that often goes disregarded in today‚Äôs society, our buying choices influencing the lives of workers around the globe. I have a passion for buying ethically, and through my artwork I reflected on the retail habits and general ignorance of everyday consumers, and how societal norms influence this. I wanted to draw attention to the vulnerability and poor treatment of millions of labourers, particularly children in third-world countries, which due to our fast-paced and materialistic lifestyles often go unnoticed."
