WATCH // Handprint, a short film to change wearer perceptions on fashion systems

 

Handprint – Behind the Scenes is a beautiful short film directed by Mary Nighy, commissioned by Livia Firth, Founder and Creative Director of the Green Carpet Challenge.

A learning tool, the film is a great way to generate in class/studio discussions surrounding the individuals working within each stage of garment supply/value chains.

“Many people’s hands touch our clothes before we wear them. If we could see or speak to those people, we might think about them and our clothes quite differently. Handprint […] imagines what it would be like if we could connect to the people who make our clothes, and encourages us to remember them.” (Mary Nighy)
