Traceable is a documentary set against the backdrop of the fast-fashion industry and our increasing disconnect of where and how clothing is made, and the hands that create a garment. Interviews with traceability experts, intercut with emerging designer Laura Siegel’s journey across India to produce her collection, the film explores our connection to the communities impacted by the products we consume.
Traceable tells the story of Laura’s efforts to shift the perspectives of consumers, while confronting the realities and risks of being a young designer in a highly competitive industry. How will the market perceive and react to an idealistic designer whose aim is to connect the consumer to the hand that crafted her garments? Is positioning her collection in the sustainable domain enough to perpetuate her career long-term?
