This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make those clothes, and the impact it’s 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 new documentary film that pulls back the curtain on an untold story and asks us each to consider, who pays the price for our clothing?
Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth, Vandana Shiva, and many more. This unprecedented project invites us all on an eye-opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.
