FASHION IS FAKE

About

INDRA AND SAMIA GALLERY 19, HENRIQUES STREET, LONDON E1 1NB (JUST OFF COMMERCIAL ROAD) Fashion is fake project by artist/ womenswear designer: Samia Malik Artwork collaboration with artist/ curator: Vanya Baloghà‚  Model/ activist: Lucy Cates (main participating model in FASHION IS FAKE performances).à‚  Thanks to everyone else who've supported and participated in FASHION IS FAKE performances.à‚  More art by: Rebecca Scott and Indra Moroder Fashion is fake project started as an organic progression from activism related to ethical trade in the fashion industry, which also branched out into questioning general aesthetics of the fashion industry. Since 2006 I carried out a vast amount of research investigating ethical standards in fashion, this research included: endless emails, long phone calls, directly confronting nearly every high street fashion shop, and most of the high end designer labels. This led on to conversations with well known charities (that I will not name). Many of these conversations with charities were about; taking hands on proactive action, to eradicate unethical trade in fashion. Unfortunately conversations with charities ended up redundant, due to charities lack of attention to detail, and reluctant attitude to support hands on ideas. Many charities raising money dealing with unethical trade, do not get me wrong have good intentions. But it must be questioned; is money raised being used effectively enough instead of lobbying against stubborn, stagnant imperial governmental conducts.à‚  TO READ FULL PRESS RELEASE PLEASE VISIT LINK BELOW: http://indraandsamia.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/fashion-is-fake-art-show.html Blog: http://indraandsamia.blogspot.co.uk/ Email: indraandsamia@gmail.com M: +44 07870219714 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/indra.samia Twitter: https://twitter.com/indraandsamia
