This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing? Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva. The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.

The True Cost was released in 2015 but it is still incredibly relevant. The cracks in the industry, exposed once again by COVID last year, are not mere coincidences. As business is screeching to a halt, garment workers are facing devastating circumstances. As consumers, we can do a lot, especially around educating ourselves to reassess our purchase decisions. The True Cost is filled with mind blowing information, and we are sure you will be empowered by joining the conversation.
