Previously we told you actress Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) would be appearing at the Pure Fashion Exhibit in London, England in support of the Made by organization efforting improvement of the social and environmental aspects of fashion companies. TLC has now received a press release containing remarks from Bonnie (with many photos of Bonnie at the event here via our Order partner Bonnie Wright Online.) The release sent to us reads:

Along with videos of testimonials by MADE-BY brands, the stand illustrates the supply chain behind the manufacture of garments. Visitors have the opportunity to sew a button onto a dress embroidered with a map of the world. The map shows the path of the dress from organic cotton grown in India, through to the socially certified spinner and weaver, and then onto the dress designer in the UK.

Bonnie and Georgia [Georgia Groome, star of Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging] sewed a button onto the dress to show their part in the supply chain.

Bonnie Wright stated: “I’ve always been very interested in fashion, but it is extremely important to me that the social and environmental issues associated with the production of fashionable clothing are addressed. MADE-BY carries out really important work in transforming the fashion industry, and I am thrilled to support the organisation and help raise awareness of these ongoing issues.”

Georgia Groome said: “MADE-BY helps people to understand the environmental impacts behind the making of their clothes and is also important in showing what sort of conditions the workers who make them work in.”MADE-BY UK Managing Director, Allanna McAspurn is delighted by the support. “In order to successfully change people’s perception of sustainable fashion, we need to engage the next generation. Bonnie and Georgia represent two of the brightest young acting talents in the UK and we are very excited to have their support.”

What a fantastic organization. It’s so great how it’s helping people see the whole line through the process of making clothes, and being socially conscious about it. And Bonnie just seems like such a sweet girl!

iI have always liked Bonnie Wright in the role of Ginny Weasley!!! and share the fact that our Birthdays are a day apart mine being February 18th and hers being February 17th we are both the same sign Aquarius!!! I feel she would do well in Fashion, as she is tall, and pretty!!! but she also makes a terrific Actress!!!!!

Bonnie is so cool. It’s great that she’s involved and interested in this and, that she’s spreading the word about the social & environmental issues of fashion.

That’s really cool! It’s really great to see that Bonnie (and Georgia) are interested in preserving, retaining and expanding the ‘fashion industry’ in a positive way! :D
