British fashion icon promotes better labour conditions

Fair Wear Foundation is very happy to welcome Katharine Hamnett London as a new member brand!

As a FWF member, Katharine Hamnett London will use its influence to work towards better labour conditions for garment workers – together with the factories that produce their clothes. FWF annually checks how well the brand is doing that.

‘As the whistleblower and long-term fanatic and campaigner about sustainable fashion I look forward to working with FWF whose aims match mine’, says Hamnett about joining Fair Wear Foundation.


‘Choose Life’
Katharine Hamnett is an icon of modern British fashion, but she is also a long-time activist fighting for a better garment industry. Katharine pioneered the much-copied slogan T-shirt – one of the most famous being CHOOSE LIFE, as worn by George Michael. The iconic ‘No more fashion victims’ T-shirt was one of the first eye-opening campaigns to raise awareness about how the fashion industry impacts people’s lives.

The first Brand Performance Check for Katharine Hamnett London will take place following the company’s initial year of membership, and will be published on the Katharine Hamnett page.
