The River Island , UK clothing brand is marking their 30th year in the fashion business with a campaign geared towards expelling labeling.

The campaign launches officially on the 5th of February and aims to celebrate the uniqueness of each of their customers as well as their individuality.

"We believe labels are for clothes, not people, so we're spinning tired stereotypes on their head and reclaiming labels to make them positive and truly, REAL!".

The campaign is colourful, aesthetically pleasing, upbeat and most importantly, DIVERSE.
