It’s Fashion Revolution Week

It’s Fashion Revolution week commemorating the 8th anniversary of the 2013 Rana Plaza collapse.  Rana Plaza was a building in Bangladesh which housed a number of garment factories, employing around 5,000 people. The people in this building were manufacturing clothing for many of the biggest global fashion brands. More than 1,100 people died in the collapse and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. The victims were mostly young women.

This year, Fashion Revolution Week is focused on Rights, Relationships, and Revolution. We all have a role in the movement to change the fashion industry.

What is fast fashion?

You’ve probably heard the term fast fashion, but you may not know what it is or why it’s not a positive thing.  Fast fashion is generally low cost clothing mass produced in response to the latest runway trends.  Doesn’t sound so bad?  Let’s explore a little further.  Fast fashion has a negative impact on both people and our planet.

How do you like to accessorize?

What’s your favorite accessory?  For me it has always been a toss up between necklaces and scarves but since starting Ginger Threads, earrings have moved way up on my list!  I’ve also fallen in love with our summer hat and our bracelets.  Too many choices, but accessories really do make the outfit!

Being a Mom is HARD

Do you ever feel like being a parent is the hardest job in the world?  I am not just talking about the sleepless nights, cleaning up all types of bodily fluids or the many late night projects.  It is the fact that you are raising a human that you want with all of your heart and soul to one day go out into this world and do amazing things.  My son (and oldest child) turns 18 this week!

Happy Anniversary To Us!

It’s hard to believe this week marks one year since we launched Ginger Threads Collections!  When we envisioned opening a sustainable fashion boutique the Pandemic was not in sight.  We created a logo, built a website and started finding brands to partner with, even attending a huge fashion market in Las Vegas! As the inventory started coming in, the Covid-19 cases around the world started to climb.  The boutique officially launched as planned on March 18, 2020 as the United States went under a stay-at-home order.  It certainly wasn’t ideal, but it was too late to turn back!
