Event Originally produced by Java Films in 2015.
Summary It started off as a web-series, charting the experiences of three young fashion bloggers, who spent a month living the life of Cambodian garment workers in Phnom Penh. But following headlines and articles all over the world, more than a million hits and lots of inquires, the webseries has been re-versioned into an hour long documentary. Frida, Anniken and Ludwig live, breath and dream fashion. They spend hundreds of euros every month on clothes and make a living promoting the latest catwalk trends. Except for speculated that factory workers must be ‘used to’ their hard lives, they have never given much thought to the people who make their clothes. Now, they’re trading their comfortable lives for those of Cambodian garment workers. As well as working in the factories, they have to survive on {dollar}3 a day. But this is no exploitative doc, relying on shock value. It poignantly shows the consequences of cheap fashion.
