David Nieper Supports Fashion Revolution Week 2018April 2018 Made In Britain
David Nieper is proud to support Fashion Revolution Week 2018, calling for greater transparency in the fashion industry. The #whomademyclothes campaign falls each year on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, which killed 1138 people and injured many more on 24th April 2013.
The aim is to raise awareness of the positive influence of fashion, while also scrutinising industry practices and raising awareness of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues.
David Nieper is a family run business, established in 1961 and employing over 300 skilled staff. The company has never ‘gone offshore’ and has always stayed loyal to local people and for over 55 years has continuously invested in local skills.
David Nieper has always gone the extra mile to prioritize provenance and integrity in the production process of clothes made in their factory. Indeed, it is a long standing custom in the company that every single piece of clothing made is fastened with a swing-tag, which is signed by the people involved in making it – from the seamstress, to the person that does the ironing!
All David Nieper collections are designed and made from first sketch to final stitch from the fashion house in Derbyshire, with unswerving commitment not just to the exceptional quality of each garment sold, but also to the well-being of the people that make them.
