His mother, like all parents, only wants the best for her son, but by purchasing products from brands like Versace and Dolce & Gabbana has become an unwitting accomplice in the toxic pollution cycle, as the presence of hazardous chemicals in clothing items bought from these brands can then enter into our lives when the clothes are made and washed.In original language:Titel Report Luxusmode fuer KinderTitelfoto des Greenpeace Reports: Luxusmode mit Nebenwirkungen.

The tailors in the original fairy-tale “The Emperor’s new clothes” deceive the king, tricking him into believing that he is wearing the finest garments - when in fact he is completely naked. Deception is a key theme in this modern fairytale as well because major fashion brands like Versace and Dolce & Gabbana are also deceiving their customers - hiding the presence of hazardous chemicals behind the glamour and dream-like mystery of their catwalk-shows and advertising. Luxury clothes may be exclusive, but toxic chemicals are not.
