Weekly Digest17 Jun 2016
It's fair to say that this week has been pretty traumatic with the news of the Orlando massacre going around the world. Both shocked and saddened by the loss of these innocent people's lives and the grief caused to their families, friends and communities therefore, we have been following all the amazing tributes that have been made to them. One that particularly moved us was Lady Gaga's speech in LA, which we have included in this week's news digest of course
There has also been a lot to read and watch in terms of ethical fashion this week, with World Child Labour Day on June 12, the release of Asian Floor Wage's "Living Wage Now!" documentary being amongst them.
Furthermore, with summer still approaching slowly (at least where we are), there seems to have been a strong focus on body image as well. Spanish artist Yolanda Dominguez launched a petition to encourage fashion magazines to show women in a more positive light, while London's new Mayor, Sadiq Khan is now banning ads that promote negative body image.
We hope this week's round-up will help you catch up with the latest news in and around conscious fashion and wish you all a great weekend!
