Chicago Fair Fashion Week

Photos from the recent Fashion Week catwalks in Paris, Milan, and New York have gone viral, but the glamor obscures some alarming statistics. Today, not only does clothing production account for 8-10% of global carbon emissions, but 93% of brands fail to pay garment workers a living wage.

Enter Chicago Fair Fashion Week: a week-long series of events aiming to provide all Chicagoland clothing-wearers with better options, including the chance to refresh your fall wardrobe sustainably for just $10.
