Katharine Hamnett London joins Fair Wear Foundation

Iconic British designer Katharine Hamnett London is working towards better labour conditions for garment workers by becoming the latest member brand of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF).

Iconic British designer Katharine Hamnett London is working towards better labour conditions for garment workers by becoming the latest member brand of the Fair Wear Foundation (FWF).

Fair Wear Foundation is a non-profit organisation that works with brands, factories, trade unions, NGOs and sometimes governments to verify and improve workplace conditions in 11 production countries in Asia, Europe and Africa.

The organisation keeps track of the improvements made by the companies it works with. And by sharing expertise, social dialogue and strengthening industrial relations, FWF increases the effectiveness of the efforts made by companies. FWF’s more than 80 member companies represent over 130 brands, and are based in Europe.

“As the whistleblower and long-term fanatic and campaigner about sustainable fashion, I look forward to working with FWF whose aims match mine,” Hamnett says.

She is a long-time activist who pioneered much-copied slogan T-shirts – one of the most famous being ‘Choose Life’, as worn by singer George Michael. The iconic ‘No more fashion victims’ T-shirt was one of the first eye-opening campaigns to raise awareness about how the fashion industry impacts people’s lives.

The first FWF brand performance check for Katharine Hamnett London will take place following the company’s initial year of membership, and will be published on the brand’s homepage.
