Fashion Revolution! 2016 participants at RISD (including President Rosanne Somerson 76 ID) wore up-cycled shirts bearing the Who Made My Clothes? insignia. Two documentaries were screened– Unravel and The True Cost – revealing the dangerous and disgraceful working conditions in factories pumping out cheap clothing for Western consumers. The documentaries were followed by a presentation from former head of RISD Apparel, Meg DeCubellis on researching Rag Pickers in India and Apparel Senior student Chris Mena AP 16, presenting his repurposed clothing collection as a runway walk.
