Amnesty International: Fashion Treaty

Students from London College of Fashion's part time courses worked with Amnesty International to create products that promote human rights through design.

A T-shirt design competition formed part of the year-long collaboration, with ten student designs being presented at the Amnesty Student Conference, where 5 were selected to be sold in the Amnesty pop-up shop at the Boxpark in Shoreditch. The project ended with a fundraising sky-dive.

It put a fire under my work, to be able to do something creative that I enjoyed, but also something that would benefit other people."

From a 'media' perspective, the interesting part is that you can actually use fashion as a platform for political challenges."

We've worked in a one-on-one nature with students who are working on final year projects, to see how the ideas around Amnesty's campaigns can be developed in terms of fashion."
