Just a month after The True Cost was released, Traceable, a new documentary about the fashion industry's supply chain, is set to premiere. This film explores the disconnect between consumers and where and how our clothing is made, juxtaposing fashion designer Laura Siegel's journey to produce her collection in India with footage of garment workers and traceability experts. Through this documentary, we see the young designer's struggle to compete in an industry that has yet to recognize and support a movement towards sustainability.
In an interview with Style.com, Siegel explained her design philosophy:
"I don’t think there’s a 100 percent solution or a ‘best way’ to do things. It still needs to be sorted out. It comes down to maintaining the conversation and evaluating yourself [as a designer] on a regular basis and thinking about how you can make things better.”
We're excited to see how Siegel aims to set herself apart and work to change the face of the industry. Tune in to Pivot on June 24th at 9 PM EST to see the premiere, and catch a sneak peak below.
