Money Fashion Power is the first print project from Fashion Revolution, the organisation that exists to highlight the hidden cost of cheap, disposable, fast fashion. I picked it up last week and was particularly struck by a pair of infographics used early on in the magazine, showing not just how little garment workers are paid (no surprise there) but also how little extra they would need in order to be paid a living wage.

According to the data from Fair Wear Foundation, garment workers would need just an extra 27 cents per €29 t-shirt in order to live a secure life with access to food, housing and essentials, plus a little extra to put aside.

This is single-issue publishing, and the team use every page of the magazine to hammer home their point, but I found the pair of infographics by far the most compelling. Take a look at the video below to see yourself, and if it leaves you wanting more, head over to the Fashion Revolution site to donate or get involved with an event happening near you.
