“I think the challenge is, in fashion everybody wants to get rich and famous and it’s easy to get rich and famous by being a bad person. But the challenge is to achieve your goals—whatever they are—while staying a decent human being. That’s where it came from…I don’t want to make my living when the price is being paid in environmental degradation and human suffering.”

—British designer Katharine Hamnett, who popularized the slogan T-shirt, speaking to The Fashion Spot about the ethical philosophy behind her brand.
