FDCI launches Not Made By Children with KSCF India at LMIFW
On day one of Lotus Makeup India Fashion Week, the event’s organisers the Fashion Design Council of India and the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation launched the Not Made by Children initiative.
On March 13, the FDCI’s president, Sunil Sethi, announced the launch of a new initiative designed to stop child labour in India’s fashion and textile industries. The KSCF works to end child labour and help children in exploitative situations as well as advocating for access to proper education and healthcare.
The FDCI’s support for the organisation shows how fashion in India is becoming increasingly conscious of both the environment and human rights. The first day of the fashion week was dedicated to sustainable fashion and dedicating a day to this cause has become expected at both LMIFW and Lakmé Fashion Week in Mumbai. More and more brands are also attempting to support fair labour conditions and sustainable production methods and the FDCI is keen to show that it is on the same page.
The KSCF is an NGO and works to “give our future generations a child-friendly world,” according to its social media. The organisation advocates for children in terms of government policies and aims to empower children worldwide.
LMIFW began on March 13 and will run until March 16 at the Jawaharlal Stadium in New Delhi. The event sees designers present their autumn/winter collections and will conclude with the Designer Showroom two-day fashion fair.
