As an alumna of University of the Arts London and someone who spent many years studying Fashion Design. I feel very deeply that The Orange Label Project is something we should all support. With all the turbulence in the world at the moment and the majority of it being inflicted on women and children, I am proud that a prominent establishment in the Fashion Community – The London College of Fashion is leading the way in raising awareness and saying no to violence against women.
So, here I am doing my little bit and sharing their information to encourage you to wear Orange on the 25th November.
All the details about the campaign are below courtesy of the LCF website.
From the London College Of Fashion Website:
The Orange Label Project, run and supported by the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women, and London College of Fashion, UAL will engage and connect the issue of violence against women with new audiences, particularly young people, through a series of creative activities.
For this project, and marking the 20th anniversary of UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UNTF), fashion disciplines will unite against violence against women.
Fashion Says NO to Violence Against Women has called for fashion students from around the world, and across disciplines, to produce a piece of work incorporating the project colour orange.
The colour reference is CMYK 5/70/100/7 or RGB 216/103/34. Winners will be announced on 25 November. However, those that are successful will be contacted directly beforehand.
Social media takeover day
On 25th November 2016 we are encouraging the fashion industry to show their support by uploading an image featuring the colour orange to social media using the hashtag #OrangeLabelProject. Last year the orange campaign even turned the White House orange!. Please join us in uploading an image to your social media accounts on 25th, and wear something orange to work that day.
- Remember, this is a positive image to convey the message ‘Fashion Says No to Violence Against Women’ and it must use the colour orange!
- Use the hashtags #Orangetheworld #UNTF #16days #Orangelabelproject.
- Please do not upload images of your finished work before this date. We want the digital world to turn orange on that day in support of the UNTF.
