Human Rights in the Fashion Industry
What is Fast Fashion?
Children in Crossfire has built a 6m long installation in Pilot's Row Youth and Community Centre on Rossville St, Derry that people can walk through and interact with. Its purpose is to highlight the damaging impact of the fast fashion industry both on the environment and human rights.
Fast fashion is one of the most destructive industries on earth. It's impact on both the environment and the people who work within the industry is devastating. As well as being an immersive experience, the installation will also have information on fast fashion so that people can get a small insight into the scale of this industry.
Did you know for example, that 1 in 6 people worldwide are employed in the fashion industry? Or that it's the 2nd highest user of water and produces a fifth of global waste water?
