The continuing story of the grey dress. The same dress, a charity shop purchase, worn again, and again. I have been photographing this dress for ten years and I want to know more about it’s origin. I want to know #whomademyfabric and #whomademyclothes? If you have any advice on how I can achieve this, please message me. I would love to hear from you.

The continuing story of the grey dress. The same dress, a charity shop purchase, worn again and again. Refashioned by each of it’s different wearers. 100% cotton, but where was the cotton grown? How was it harvested? #Traceability I have been photographing the Grey Dress for ten years and now I want to know more about it’s origin. I am going to become detective and see how far back along the chain I can go in finding out #whomademyclothes?
