“NATURAL FASHION SYNOPSIS”
Deforestation and climate change impacts the natural habitat of tribal cultures and the depiction of this original source unveiled a beauty in naturalism. ‘Natural Fashion’ is a project aiming to make consumers aware of the action needed in the fashion industry. A series of illustrations have been produced to demonstrate the many areas unethical fashion has on the environment and people. Illustrations of sweatshop workers demonstrate the maltreatment, which the fashion industry has produced. Tribal illustrations represent those who value and rely on the environment and land. Fashion decorations are thematic conveying not only the beauty and celebration nature deserves, but the connection back to nature and sustainability, which is needed greatly.
