Aug 03, 2009
Previously we told you actress Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) would be appearing at the Pure Fashion Exhibit in London, England in support of the Made by organization efforting improvement of the social and environmental aspects of fashion companies. TLC has now received a press release containing remarks from Bonnie (with many photos of Bonnie at the event here via our Order partner Bonnie Wright Online.) The release sent to us reads:
Along with videos of testimonials by MADE-BY brands, the stand
illustrates the supply chain behind the manufacture of garments.
Visitors have the opportunity to sew a button onto a dress embroidered
with a map of the world. The map shows the path of the dress from
organic cotton grown in India, through to the socially certified
spinner and weaver, and then onto the dress designer in the UK.
Bonnie and Georgia [Georgia Groome, star of Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging] sewed a button onto the dress to show their part in the supply chain.
Bonnie Wright stated: “I’ve always been very interested in fashion, but
it is extremely important to me that the social and environmental
issues associated with the production of fashionable clothing are
addressed. MADE-BY carries out really important work in transforming
the fashion industry, and I am thrilled to support the organisation and
help raise awareness of these ongoing issues.”
Georgia Groome said: “MADE-BY helps people to understand the
environmental impacts behind the making of their clothes and is also
important in showing what sort of conditions the workers who make them
work in.”MADE-BY UK Managing Director, Allanna McAspurn is delighted by the
support. “In order to successfully change people’s perception of
sustainable fashion, we need to engage the next generation. Bonnie and
Georgia represent two of the brightest young acting talents in the UK
and we are very excited to have their support.”
