E M M E x Fashion Revolution
#WHOMADEMYCLOTHES Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry. The EMME Team stands with this movement and their beliefs in sustainable action, human rights, fair wage and transperancy in the industry.
All our items are made in our Brooklyn Studio. Our production runs for department stores are manufactured locally in The New York Garment District on 38th street. We are strict on our minimal waste policy and are always trying to find ways to re-invent "leftovers" and "scrap" material and turn them into fabulous fashions!
We want to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased, so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.
On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. 1,138 people died and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.
That’s when Fashion Revolution was born.
There were five garment factories in Rana Plaza all manufacturing clothing for big global brands. The victims were mostly young women.

E M M E x STUDY HALL EARTH
"Study Hall : Sustainability as a Culture”, the fourth in its critically-acclaimed conference series Study Hall. Hot on the heels of a successful partnership with the United Nations in February, the first international edition was held in London UK at Central Saint Martins college of art and design, in collaboration with Fashion Revolution. The event took place during Fashion Revolution Week, on the 6th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse.
As with previous Study Hall events, Study Hall x Central Saint Martins gathered leading industry experts in fashion and textile manufacturing, paired with cultural influencers, academics, activists and artists. Study Hall continues to be among the most culturally diverse events of its kind, this time exploring the central theme of “Sustainability as a Culture”, and themes of racial justice, responsible sourcing and manufacturing, circularity, and authenticity in design. Study Hall x Central Saint-Martins is powered by G-Star Raw, adidas, and Calik Denim, Youtube.
