Fashion Revolution launched the “Loved Clothes Last” short movie to comment on the issue of mass consumption and waste, which generated an unprecedented crisis and a significant impact on climate change. The film was directed by Balthazar Klarwein and produced by production company Feel Films.
The movie has Angelina Jesson as protagonist, showcases a disturbing dystopian reality and is focusing on a series of symbols (from Wabi Sabi to rebirthing and circularity) to explore mindfulness and consciousness. With its final call to arms #LovedClothesLast, it encourages viewers to understand how small actions can benefit the planet, reduce landfill mass and ultimately create a more meaningful relationship with the things we choose to buy.
Never has a fashion shoot felt so good.
It’s been such an honour to collaborate with Fashion Revolution, whose work is so innovative and so important. I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve achieved together on this extraordinary project.

This is the first time that Fashion Revolution combines campaigning for supply chain transparency with a new dedicated focus on environmental issues. The film therefore marks the start of a new journey, #whomademyclothes to #lovedclotheslast – looking at the full story from the origins of the clothes we buy to their end of life.
