Made In Sri Lanka

Since 2016, Remake has taken 8 'peace corps for fashion' journeys into garment maker communities to give us human faces behind our clothing labels – from “Made in China,” “Made In India” to “Made in Pakistan“. In our 7th journey, we took aspiring fashion designers into Cambodia where they listened and learned. This time we took next gen fashion designers from Parsons School of Design and California College of the Arts to Sri Lanka.

Director Statement

"The garment work in developing countries is synonymous to slavery with little or no awareness of what happens inside the garment factories around the world. This film is a way to highlight the systemic oppression that affects the lives of countless women who make our clothes and create empathy for us to look at our garments in a new way."
