The Six Items Challenge

6 March – 18 April

A fashion fast to oppose fast fashion

2 March - 14 April 2022

Fast Fashion is the drive to increase profits and get products into our high street shops faster and faster, to satisfy an insatiable desire for new trends; the drive to sell more, consume more, make more, waste more. This, however, has disastrous consequences for the people who make our clothes.

The Six Items Challenge is designed to challenge fast fashion and raise vital funds to enable Labour Behind the Label to keep fighting for the justice that garment workers deserve.

How does it work?

The idea is simple – select six items of clothing from your wardrobe and pledge to wear only these every day for six weeks.

You can have unlimited access to underwear, accessories and footwear. You’re even allowed to have your gym wear or uniforms in addition to your six. But your main items of clothing – trousers, dresses, tops, skirts, jumpers, shirts or cardigans – must remain the same throughout.
