FFB: Fashion, Feminism, and Finance
(Made Van Krimpen for L'Officiel Ukraine April 2011, via FGR)
And today is another Feminist Fashion Bloggers event! This time, finance, and once again I find that I already said many of the things I wanted to say on this issue. So here's another links roundup, with a bonus thought: financial independence is important.
1. Why boycotting Target misses the mark -- unfair labor practices and consumerism.
2. Lanvin for H&M -- more on labor practices, and the link between fast fashion and increased consumerism.
3. Ethical and affordable wardrobe -- you don't have to sell your soul to dress nicely. Well, maybe just a little.
4. And finally, Schmatta -- the relationship between fashion, labor unions, and fair labor practices.
