Advocacy & Campaigns
Ashish x FashionRoundtable is an exciting collaboration by our early supporter, leading UK based designer Ashish, to produce a limited edition organic cotton T-shirt to support our not for profit work and advocacy.
The #dontmakefashionhistory T-shirt was created, designed and printed in the UK. Ashish Gupta first showed at LFW in 2005 and went on to win the New Generation award 3 times.
Born in Delhi and moved to London to complete an MA at Central St Martins. His first buying order was with Browns Focus in 2001. Since then he has built a global business and huge following. Ashish is an early supporter of Fashion Roundtable and worked with Stacey Duguid, Editor at Large for ELLE UK and his team, to design and create the t-shirt.
#dontmakefashionhistory was our launch campaign and aligns with our advocacy work to support the fashion industry.
In January 2018 we launched a direct action campaign to let all MPs know about the key concerns of the industry from Brexit. From loss of Freedom of Movement, to costs to business of tariffs on trade, as well as Single Market access. "We would like assurances on whether we are remaining within the EU customs union and that this Parliament fully understands the logistical issues for an industry where the supply chain is international and fluid. One garment and its constituent materials can go in and out of multiple territories from design to delivery. We ask what support is the Government planning to put in place to ensure our future growth and to prevent a talent and economic drain, as working and location within the Single Market and Customs Union becomes far easier and more attractive to fashion businesses, leading to an estimated 35% drop in creative sector business within the UK?"
