16 DAYS OF ACTIVISM IS A UN WOMEN INTERNATIONAL CAMPAIGN
TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN AND GIRLS.
They have created a space for discussion and have bought this conversation to fashion…
WHAT IS FASHION’S RESPONSIBILITY AND ROLE IN THE PROTECTION, UNIFICATION, INCLUSION AND EQUALITY OF WOMEN?
This season Teatum Jones have created a fashion ROUND TABLE not RUNWAY film with key industry leaders and activists to present alongside their SS19 collection.
“The SS19 collection has been inspired by the interviews we’ve had over the last six months with activists and campaigners.
From our research and interviews we conducted in relation to 16 Days of Activism, we have extracted the most powerful messages and literally woven them into a of body textiles, such as; “I DEFINE MYSELF” and “I OWN MY STORY.”
Recognised for our textile development, we wanted to present a collection of bold, vibrant and unapologetic textiles that speak louder than previous seasons and reflect the courage and determination in the voices we’ve listened to throughout our research
