1 Fair Trade Fashion Showcase - An ethical journey from Fibre to Fashion

2 Page 2 The Event March 2-4, 2018 marks the 7 th National Fair Trade Conference, hosted in Vancouver, B.C. by the Canadian Fair Trade Network, in partnership with Simon Fraser University. Each year, the Conference is hosted in a different Canadian city, and attracts over 300 attendees, from various backgrounds including students and youth, fair trade businesses and entrepreneurs, government representatives, and interested individuals wanting to change the world. This year at the Conference, one day will be dedicated to the theme of fair trade fashion and textiles. For some time, the fashion industry has been scrutinized in regards to the disturbing trend of fast fashion, clothing that is fabricated quickly using cheaper materials and even cheaper labour. Sustainable fashion offers a new alternative, focusing on recycling old materials, asking consumers to buy used and second hand, reusing, recycling and finding ways to extend the life of the products that are manufactured. Fair trade fashion takes this focus a step further, asking that raw materials be produced sustainably, with less chemicals, and assurance to protecting the human rights of producers all along the supply chain. To demonstrate the commitment to a new future that puts people and planet first in the textile and fashion industry, the Canadian Fair Trade Network is organizing a Fair Trade Fashion Showcase at the 2018 National Fair Trade Conference. Designers from Vancouver and Calgary will be selected to prepare fashion designs using internationally certified Fairtrade material. A display showcasing the fair trade fashions, a photo montage, and a video will be created to explain the journey of the material along the supply chain, with special focus on the people behind the scenes from fibre to fashion.

3 Page 3 Designer Requirements Recruitment for designers in two cities, Vancouver and Calgary, is underway. The goal is to showcase three designers based in Calgary. In total, we anticipate 6-7 different designers will provide one fashion design piece for the showcase. Each designer will be given a specified amount (4 meters) of internationally certified fairtrade cotton weave, undyed, and will be responsible to use the material in an efficient way to create one fashion design piece. The fabric is coming from Mandala Apparels based out of India. Their website is The goal is to incorporate the stories of the weavers who have made the fabric with the designers who then make the garments, to bring attention to labour issues within the textile industry: from fibre to fashion. Designers are encouraged to treat their fabric using natural dyes that are as chemical free as possible. Designers are also asked to be conscious of waste and try to utilize as much of the material, including scraps, into their design. There are no limitations on design ideas, but we ask that any accessories/ notions are either made of the fabric or are vintage/ second hand/ reused/ fairtrade to fit within the eco-fairtrade ethos and designers will be asked to explain such choices in the video. Designers will be asked to keep in communication with us during the design and fabrication process so we can photograph and film the process of their design journey and incorporate those shots into the final showcase and video that will be unveiled at the National Conference. Designers will be confirmed in January 2018 so that we can begin allocating the fabric. To apply to be a designer in our Fashion Showcase, please Erin Bird at Selection is at the discretion of Fair Trade Calgary.
