London: Emma Watson, who unveiled her third and final collection for ethical clothing brand People Tree, revealed that spending time in Bangladesh to watch the clothes being made was an eye-opener for her.

"The design process continued with me trying on each and every piece to get the fits just as I wanted them, and then I visited Bangladesh to see the clothing actually being made and meet the people making it. It was an incredible and life-changing experience - I really wish everyone had the chance to see the difference Fair Trade makes with their own eyes," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.

"Fair trade fashion comes from the villages - and provides a real alternative to working in a garment factory and the harsh environment of living in a slum," she added.

The new collection has a summer festival vibe, featuring floral and check-print tea dresses, denim hot pants and cotton waistcoats.

Watson, who is currently studying at Brown University in the US, will next design a range of eco-friendly clothes for fashion label Alberta Ferretti and was recently announced as the new face of Lancome cosmetics.
