FASHION REIMAGINED is a film about fashion’s impact on the environment and the designer who’s doing something about it. It follows London designer Amy Powney of Mother of Pearl who decides at the height of her career that she can no longer participate in fashion’s destructive cycle and instead, sets out to produce a sustainable collection from field to finished garment.
This pioneering journey across 3 continents is the first time a designer has attempted to personally vet every step of her supply chain, uncovering numerous environmental and humanitarian issues along the way including water pollution, deforestation, global warming, animal mutilation and farmer suicide. It is also a rich and visceral peek into worlds rarely observed, lyrically exploring one of the most important issues of our time.
