Who made my clothes? Join the Fashion Revolution!

Four years ago on April 24th 2013, 1138 people were killed and over 2500 people were injured when the Rana Plaza Factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. It wasn’t a natural disaster. This was a result of  “Fast Fashion”.

Though the Factory was supposed to be 4 stories, few more stories were built on top of it with poor materials and construction because of the pressure and deadline from Fast fashion brands.

We can’t let this happen again.

Fashion Revolution is an international campaign held by FashionRevolution.org 

 

Fashion Revolution is a global movement that runs all year, celebrating fashion as a positive influence, raising awareness of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues, showing that change is possible and celebrating those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion.

Fashion Revolution Week is our #whomademyclothes campaign in April, which falls on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1,138 people and injured many more on 24th April 2013. Brands and producers are encouraged to respond with the hashtag #imadeyourclothes and to demonstrate transparency in their supply chain.

Fashion Revolution Day Do Something

Do Something.

Discarded clothing can be recycled

 

As consumers, we have power. We are the driver of trends, and every time we buy something, we’re voting with our wallet. When we speak, brands listen. As consumers, we need to know who makes our clothes and under what conditions. We need to be able to scrutinise what it is we’re really paying for. We need to know that the people who clothe us are being paid enough to live with dignity. Otherwise, we’re effectively and unwittingly contributing to the exploitation of others.
