Yesterday, Lotus India Fashion Week begins with a vital message. Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi collaborated with Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) and led a group of designers to pledge a child labour-free supply chain in the Indian Fashion Industry.
“There are about 500 million children in the world who are forced into child labour. Through this pledge, we promise to stop hiring children at the workplace,” Satyarthi said while addressing the media on the first day of Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week 2019.
FDCI and Kailash Satyarthi launched #Notmadebychildren campaign. This campaign aims to stop child labour in India’s fashion and textile industries.
“There are so many people who follow fashion. So, I feel this is one of the great platforms to raise voice against child labour. The fashion industry is not only about beauty and glamour. People involved in fashion are also responsible for creating awareness and education among people.
“This movement will enhance the inner beauty and outer beauty of the fashion industry and of course will help in changing the lives of our children.”
