Collaborating with the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF), designers Eley Kishimoto are raising awareness to the impending hazards drastic climate changes within the environment impose.
Decorating a limited number of organically sourced and ethically made T-shirts with a signature Eley Kishimoto design; everyone can now show their support for Climate Week, which runs from 21st – 27th March. Backed by an array of reputable fashion and music heavyweights, including Dame Vivienne Westwood, Lily Cole, Jarvis Cocker and Sir Paul McCartney the campaign is fronted by fashionable faces Gemma Arterton, Jemma Kidd and Emilia Fox.
i-D Online caught up with Mark Eley of the Kishimoto design duo to find out how he got involved and what we can do to show our support and help save the world.
How did you first become involved with Climate Week? Through working with the EJF producing organic cotton bags for London Fashion Weekend two years ago. They invited us to take part in Climate Week by designing an exclusive printed T-shirt and the rest was history.
Why do you think the charity is a worthy cause? It enables and encourages a wide audience to take part – however small or big – in action rather than just be involved in idea or philosophy.
How important do you think it is to look after the environment? More important than I currently spare time for, mentally and physically.
What were your creative processes when working with the charity? People, boys and girls, old and new, trees, the Tree of Life, past, present, future, green, graphic, graphic green trees…
What advice can you give to people who want to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle? Start close to you.
