Fast Fashion Billboards

3 of the 4 biggest tragedies in fashion history took place in Bangladesh where in one instance 1,134 people DIED after clothing factory building collapsed all in the name of “fast fashion.”
 .
In order to highlight this issue street artist Igor Dobrowolski took to the streets by creating billboards that showed the greed and horrors of the fashion industry. In his own words:
“The number of fatal victims rises alongside the profits of companies like H&M which is the largest company that manufactures in Bangladesh. Retailers are pressuring the factory to lower product prices and factory owners can do nothing but agree to work faster and cheaper. If not, the retailer will just go to the next factory. The only way out is to cut costs, by reducing wages for employees, lowering the working conditions and safety with no respect for the environment. EVERY PURCHASE IS YOUR VOTE.”
 .
Hauntingly beautiful.
