With a week to go until Fashion Revolution Day, here's a short film by one of the co-founders of the movement, ethical fashionista Livia Firth. It spotlights the challenges faced by fashion workers worldwide and asks the question: what if we could connect with the people that make our clothes?

Featuring Elettra Wiedemann, daughter of Isabella Rosselinni, grand-daughter of Ingrid Bergman, it's a simple yet remarkably affecting film that speaks volumes with hardly a word of dialogue. Livia says of Handprint:

“The more I see this film, the more I realize just how important it is for all of us to make the connection with the hands of the real people who make our clothes. We can make a difference to their lives by never forgetting this connection.”
Watch, enjoy, and join the Fashion Revolution.

Happy Easter.
