Actress Emma Watson talking about her People Tree collection and what it is all about on this behind the scenes interview on its catalog shoot. Support fair trade and organic clothing by supporting Emma’s line which will also support People Tree as the profits will be donated to its foundation.
Bristol will host actress Emma Watson’s People Tree Fair Trade Clothing Line at The Fairwear 2010 fashion show in Bristol Cathedral today, Thursday, 25th February 2010. Unfortunately Emma couldn’t make an appearance because her schedule is full at the moment. The collection used 100% organic and Fair Trade certified cotton, and made entirely by fair-trade groups by hand, using hand weaving, hand knitting and hand embroidery to create livelihoods for some of the most disadvantaged people in India, Bangladesh and Nepal. All profits from the line will go to the People Tree foundation supporting fair trade and environmental awareness in the fashion industry. Emma have confirmed that the continuance of her work with People Tree will depend on the success of the line and that she hopes it will be the beginning of making a difference.
Now that actress Emma Watson’s new fair trade certified fashion line has been launched, we are happy to let you know that the catalog is now available. In support of fair trade, Emma said:
If you feel you want to promote Fair Trade Fashion as a tool for change, I hope you’ll join me in supporting People Tree and get in touch with them at http://www.peopletreeyouth.co.uk
So far the clothing line is now available on People Tree’s website, People Tree support stores, ASOS.com, and John Lewis. It is also available for the US, Europe and Asia (e.g. Australia and New Zealand). Once again all profits will go to the People Tree foundation in support of fair trade.
