The slogan tee is one trend that never completely vanishes from stores. However, its popularity comes and goes in waves. I haven’t always been a fan of the slogan tee until its most recent bout of popularity – the key seems to be simple, monochrome iterations which can be dressed up as well as styled down. I first notice it gain popularity in SS13 and it appeared on the runway again last September. I think my favourite way to wear this trend is to make a statement about social justice.
1. Mirrogram ‘One, enough to make a difference’ T-shirt available online. Prices vary by design.
Recently, I was very lucky to receive this slogan tee (in white with black and red font) by Mirrogram. The concept behind the clothing line, started by Andrew Lorimer-Derham, is to make people stop and reflect about where their clothes come from. The slogan of this tee reads ‘Enough to make a difference’ – but looking at it in the mirror adds something else. If you’ve been reading this blog for long, you know I’m a massive advocate of the idea that one person is enough to make a difference. After all, the Fair Trade movement is about many individuals taking small actions to make a collective difference in the way we do fashion.
Andrew also shares this notion and if you do too, I encourage you to check out his own clothing line, which features this T-shirt and other designs which you can choose in a range of styles (because T-shirts fit everyone differently, right?). Andrew has recently launched a crowd funding venture to fund the next stage of his business.
Plus, shirts are printed at The Print Bar in Brisbane, which uses 100% renewable energy on site. They also use environmentally friendly, water soluble inks which aren’t nasty to the soil. Moreover, with every Mirrogram purchase, customers can allocate $3.00AUD of the cost to one of four development projects of their choice
This T-shirt is the latest update on this incredibly popular shirt by Danish brand, A Question Of. Slogan shirts are their thing. And they do them extremely well. I would love to wear this shirt boyfriend style – oversized, with the sleeves rolled up. Wear it over skinny jeans or tucked into a feminine black skirt with heels.
