Ethical Fashion Initiative
A particular person can not have a fashion by oneself, but for one thing to be outlined as fashion, there must be dissemination and followers. This dissemination can take several forms; from the top-down (“trickle-down”) to bottom-up (“bubble up”), or transversally throughout cultures and through viral memes and media. Fashions could range significantly within a society based on age, social class, generation, occupation, and geography, and can also differ over time. The terms fashionista and fashion sufferer refer to someone who slavishly follows current fashions. The standard has defined requirements that make sure the organic standing of textiles, from harvesting of the uncooked materials to environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling, to be able to provide assurance to the end consumer.
