Introducing the #WEARABIGISSUE fashion brand. Art apparel that makes more than just a fashion statement.

In association with +rehabstudio and a collection of artists who have donated their talent, energy and creativity to the work of The Big Issue.

'Candy Bomb' - addresses the issue of war and its affect on children. Designed by artist Joe Webb, he says:

"The design of the airplane dropping sweets in place of bombs is a direct comment on how children are being affected by war. The sweets are a representation of the bombs and children at the same time. The original idea came from the story of the 'Berlin Candy Bomber' - at the end of WW2 candy was dropped from a bomber to children. So it’s also an image of hope that peace will come.

"I wanted people to stop and think about the innocent young lives that are being taken by these terrible wars, in particular in Syria at the moment."

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.25 and sell it on to the public for £2.50, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
