On Sunday 20 March the Movies that Matter Festival in Den Haag will be screening the groundbreaking documentary film ‘The True Cost’ – a must see for everyone who is interested in fashion and the industry ‘hiding’ behind the pretty pictures!
Afterwards Charlie + Mary’s agency and The Refugee Company will be showing the latest True Fashion collections on the catwalk in the foyer of the theatre aan het Spui in The Hague.
The labels which will be presented on the catwalk are Studio JUX, People Tree, Wunderwerk and l’Herbe Rouge. These labels are ‘TRUE’ because their collections are made with respect for craftsmanship and the people who make their collections. And they use sustainable and innovative fabrics and production methods to create their collections.
De title of the show ‘Behind the Scenes’ refers to an invitation for the viewer of the show to enjoy fashion and at the same time to be aware of the story behind it. The viewer will be inspired to help the fashion industry forward in a positive way for both the wearers as well as for the makers.
