at Future Fashion Index

The short film below explores the effect the fashion industry is having on climate change and follows the Extinction Rebellion non-violent protests  (or swarms) that took place on 17th February 2019, during London Fashion Week. The main point of contact for the making of the film was Sara Arnold, a fashion rental business owner and Extinction Rebellion climate change activist. The aim, in making this film, is to provide a starting point in which to question the way the fashion industry currently works. This is the catalyst for Future Fashion Index. We want you to rethink your clothing choices from issues presented in the film. We want to show you what it means to think in new ways about the way you dress.
