The Stitch Up

The Stitch Up

By Broccoli Productions

We Were Always Here

Wednesday, 22 December

Fashion. It’s big business. But it’s also got big problems. As an industry it's responsible for 10% of global carbon emissions, and around the world just 2% of fashion workers are paid a livable salary. But despite this, we’re consuming and producing more clothing than ever before. In this one off documentary we'll be examining how we got here. What are the pressures causing us to overconsume, and how can we begin to curb them? How is lack of transparency causing confusion for consumers? And what can we do about a fashion industry that prioritizes profits over people and planet, all the while utilising clever marketing tactics and greenwashing to convince us otherwise. As it turns out, all it takes is for us to pull on the thread a little harder...for the whole thing to unravel. The Stitch Up was presented and produced by Bea Duncan. It was mastered by Ben Williams. This is a Broccoli Production.
