New ideas

I have been reading the new book by Observer columnist Lucy Siegle about the real facts of production and cost cutting within the fast fashion industry, it makes enlightening reading.

There are many facts within the book that i would like to explore within my Needlewoman piece of work and given the fact that the same thing that happened here in the 1850's is happening in the Far East and we ignore it for the sake of our £4 T shirts I need to look to address this in some way.
So first ideas were to capture the garments in a different way.

15 minutes to sew a pair of 5 pocket jeans.

In the west we consume 55 kilos of new textiles every year.
We shall see where it goes from here......
