Entering the competition
We can only enter your Fair Trade fashion show into the Wear Fair competition if you show us how you succeeded in these three areas.

Our page describing the problems in the global clothing industry are there to help you out, and the Fairtrade foundation website provides helpful answers to questions you may have.
