Fashion Revolution is the #whomademyclothes campaign in April, that falls on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, that killed 1138 people and injured many more. During this week, brands are encouraged to demonstrate transparency in their supply chain.
We need a Fashion Revolution to unite people and organisations to work together towards radically changing the industry. Changes can be made in the way our clothes are sourced, produced and consumed so that our clothing is made in a safe, clean and fair way.
Fast fashion is a feminist issue. 80% of people that make clothes are women and the majority of them live in poverty and are subject to exploitation, poor working conditions and very little pay.
Fashion Revolution puts it perfectly: “Whether you are someone who buys and wears fashion or you work in the industry along the supply chain somewhere or if you’re a policymaker who can have an impact of legal requirements, you are accountable for the impact fashion has on people’s lives and on nature.
