“I don’t do fashion. I am fashion.” Coco Chanel

8 am – 11 pm

Seven days a week

1 day a month off

No certainty of when you will next get paid

60% chance of work place sexual harassment

The Machinist’s is a telling documentary which takes us to the manufacturing source. Profiling three female Bangladeshi garment workers and a male boss of a budding trade union in Dhaka, The Machinist’s have us asking ourselves, what is the human cost of our clothes?
