British actress Lily Cole joined her fellow students at Cambridge University to take part in an ethical fashion show this week.
“As in any industry it’s important to look through the process from beginning to end to make sure we are not producing in ways detrimental to the world,” the actress told models and spectators at the show. “As these labels show, producing clothes with a conscientious awareness of the global impact they cause is by no means impossible or limiting.”
Cole then went on to talk about the importance of the fashion industry using fair trade and organic materials and implored designers to be aware of the way their clothes are made.
Cole has been studying History of Art at the university since September.
