CYCLE 1 - SALVAGE TEES

The summer of 2014 saw ‘EMG’ unveil the debut 'Salvage Tee' cycle, collection. Made up of repurposed fabrics from fifteen of London’s most eccentric designers. These one-off garments were available in central London’s Soho during a 10 day pop-up, supported by Carnaby, which was launched on Friday 25th July. An impressive £3694.00 was raised and will go to TRAID & CHILDHOPE to protect children in Bangladesh from accidents, trafficking and abuse as well as guide them towards a route to education and a life off the streets while their parents work in garment factories. Never before has an initiative achieved such a pairing of eclectic designers in such an exclusive manner for such a noteworthy cause.

The ‘Salvage T’ Designs include repurposed garments from the fashion houses of Giles Deacon, Zandra Rhodes, Basso & Brooke, Alex Noble, Agi & Sam, Louise Gray, Alex Mattson, Martine Rose, Kit Neale, Richard Sorger, Kitty Joseph, Marcus Lupfer, Omar Kashoura, & Ashley Williams.

“All children have a right to education in a safe, protected environment. This is not a reality for many children in Bangladesh, children from the poorest families, whose mothers work in the garment industry. Instead of going to school, many children must work long hours in dangerous conditions,or they are left with out care or supervision, putting them at risk of violence or exploitation. Through this project, we are helping children to get the education they deserve, and working with parents, communities and decision-makers to improve the conditions of children and adults, for a safer, more positive future.” Jill Healey, Executive Director of ChildHope
