myfashionindustries is a project about free-trade zones. It triggers issues of commodity fetishism by redefining the oft-obscured relationship between labour and commodity. The project discloses the production process of the designs with an extensive documentation method and relates it to the wider trade perspective in a global context.

The Made in North Korea shirts were manufactured in the Kaesong Industrial Complex and the Made in thePhilippine shirts was produced in the Cavite Economic Zone (Rosario).
