"I made my clothes"
Its Fashion Revolution week
From the 19th to the 26th of April, Fashion Revolution week commemorates the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1138 people and shed a light on the need for systematic change in the fashion supply chain. This week, we and those at Fashion Revolution ask you to think about #WhoMadeMyClothes 👚 As makers, we know how much work it takes to make our own clothes. Garment workers deserve better pay and better working conditions, and we, as consumers, deserve transparency Join the Fashion Revolution movement this week and share your photos and questions by using the hashtags #FashionRevolution and #WhoMadeMyClothes 👗
Fast Fashion Trends Made At Home:
Clothes shopping used to be an occasional event—something that happened a few times a year when the seasons changed or when we outgrew what we had. But about 20 years ago, something changed. Clothes became cheaper, trend cycles sped up, and shopping became a hobby. Enter fast fashion and the global chains that now dominate our high streets and online shopping. Take a look at the makerist patterns that you can make instead of buying fast fashion and get some inspiration!

How To Mend Your Clothes
A handy guide from your Makerist team. We all know the modern fashion industry isn't sustainable. Aside from being a fun and fullfilling hobby, many sewists first become interested in making their own clothes because they want to opt out of the fast fashion cycle and be more mindful with their clothing. At Makerist we believe in making good quality clothes that last a lifetime, and a key part of that is proper maintenance of your clothes!
