The industry is changing, slowly, and at last consumers are starting to demand change - especially through glorious campaigns like #FashRev and #WhoMadeYourClothes. Really the only way to change the big bad industry is to talk through our purses. If we all start to consume more ethically, and less, then big businesses will have to take notice.

Having had my first son 10 months ago, I became suddenly aware of how little support there is available to new mums and keeping up their self-esteem.
