The Dollar-a-Day-Dress

Treehugger reviews a new BBC documentary, The Dollar A Day Dress. Sounds fascinating:

Reporter Steve Bradshaw travelled from the Sahara to the Andes to discover some of the harsh truths about free trade and its impact on the developing world.

In each country he collected fabrics for an outfit which symbolises the plight of the millions who live on less than a dollar a day – designed and made by a group of top London fashion students and modelled at London Fashion Week by Red Cap and former Eastenders star Tamzin Outhwaite.

If you can’t watch the documentary itself, the BBC has also provided a transcript.
