Y9 Geography of Fashion

Year 9 last term were working on the Geography of fashion last term before they started their GCSE course yesterday.  Here are some of their findings about the global fashion industry.

Tania researched Primark

Claire and Courtney looked at the NBA (Basketball)

Rachel (Not sure who else worked with you please let me know) researched Gap

These were just a few of the many entries from Y9.  Well done and good luck with your new courses this term.


Y9 Globalization of Fashion

Today we have started our globalization unit and kicked it off by looking at Fashion.  Some of you managed to have a go at the Sims Sweatshop activity.  For those of you who didn’t get a chance to play during class then click to see how many you can make.

Here are some web sites where you can find out more about globalization and the fashion industry.

Clean Clothes Campaign These people have kindly lent me a DVD that I will be showing you soon.  The Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) is an international campaign, focused on improving working conditions in the global garment and sportswear industries.  The show below shows how much money is spent on the making of a trainer (remember this is in Euro’s)


Global Eye focus on fashion – This explains the process of globalisation of the fashion industry and explains the global chain of production and Export Processing Zones.

Global Exchange – Another movement to campaign for a sweat free world.  Lots of info about particular companies such as Nike and Gap and the conditions under which their products are made.
