DEPT. OF SHOPPING BETTER... ARE BIG BRANDS OPEN TO SCRUTINY?

In time for Fashion Revolution Week, the FR team has published a new Transparency Index, assessing 100 top fashion brands across five key areas (parameters and weighting is in the graphic below). We want to know how they're doing at sustainability, equality, and general not-evilness. Or, at least, we want to be able to see them trying. All they have to do is open a window.

And here is how they fared at being watchable...

Surprise! The GAP group are not bad at letting us see behind their curtains. No suprise! Forever 21 is hiding nearly everything from the consumer. Even more secretive, with a transparency score of 0 (ZERO) is Dior. Which, since yesterday, Bernard Arnault's LVMH owns outright.

Which only goes to show: the topmost luxury labels are every bit as likely to be treating workers like slaves in the name of profit as the cheapest trashiest mass brands. 

I'm not saying any of these companies are doing this. But if they've nothing to hide, why are they hiding it?
