Anti-Slavery Day is marked in the UK on 18th October of every year. A much-needed opportunity to raise awareness of human trafficking and modern slavery, its aim is to encourage government, local authorities, companies, charities and individuals to do what they can to address the problem.
A cause close to the brand’s heart, Outland Denim offers formerly enslaved or exploited young women training, employment pathways and holistic support through their revolutionary employment model.
Awarded the A+ in the 2019 Ethical Fashion Report by Baptist World Aid, Outland Denim is also Australia’s first B CorporationⓇ denim brand and is the winner of the 2020 Thomson Reuters Foundation Stop Slavery Award.
Alongside its latest anti-exploitation initiatives, Outland Denim has shifted its production to six capsule collections per year as part of its post-COVID-19 business pivots. The latest drop, “The Weekend Edit”, is inspired by the ‘new normal’ and increased time spent at home.
The Weekend Edit collection is centred around easy wearing chambray pieces made for lounging. All pieces are vegan-friendly, finished with a leather-free jacron paper patch. Highlights include the label’s first ever boilersuit, the Piper, made with 100% natural cotton.
