Five Garments. Five Looks, over Five Days. It’s that easy to change the world.
It’s easier than ever to buy new, cheap clothing. But the reality is that the garment industry still has one of the worst records when it comes to the treatment of the people working in it, as well as its overall effect on the environment. YOU can change that.
Instead of ordering something new when you’re trying to figure out what to wear, challenge yourself to take another look in your closet and make a mindful, conscious decision.
In fact… I 5x5 Challenge you!
Here’s the Deal:
In April, go through your closet and pick out 5 items to create a capsule wardrobe that you will wear over the course of 5 days. Specifically April 20th - 24th, Fashion Revolution Week.
Post your ‘Outfit of the Day’ with the hashtags #FashionRevolution2020 and #AIBI5x5Challenge and tag @aibichicago to let us know.
Follow @aibichicago on Instagram and like The Apparel Industry Board, Inc on Facebook to get all the updates and special guest blog posts.
Sound too easy? Try this:
Choose 1 or more garments that are from a brand that is sustainable, ethically sourced, and/or fair wage focused. Tag them too.
Choose 1 or more garments that are from a local small business or designer. Tag them too.
Tag one of your friends with the phrase “I 5x5 Challenge you!” and see what fun looks they come up with!
