Fashion’s Dirty Secrets Day 7

We reach day 7 of the Fashion’s Dirty Secrets exhibition, taking place as part of the E17 Art Trail. Today we see another photo from Anti-Slavery International.

Anti-Slavery International

A report from Anti-Slavery International revealed that factories producing clothes for Marks & Spencers, Tescos and Mothercare were keeping workers in slave like conditions.

Anagha, 20, worked in one such factory:The security men in the factory stopped my parents and brothers from visiting me. When I refused to do over time, I got shouted at. It was worse than prison.” 

Marks & Spencers claim their own auditors found no problems at the factory. They continue to resist calls for unannounced regular checks within their factories.

If you’d like to see the exhibition in full then come and join us this Friday, at the Rose & Crown pub in Walthamstow. As well as the exhibition they’ll be music, drinks, cakes, raffles and more. For further details visit the E17 Art Trail website.

All the money raised on the night will go to one of the charities who has donated photos to the exhibition. Which one gets it you decided. Just vote for your favourite photo below and the one which gets the most votes gets the money.

Today’s photo is…Anagha
