What is Fashion Revolution?
Fashion Revolution week takes place April 20th to 26th, commemorating the garment workers who were killed and injured in the Rana Plaza disaster of 2013.
The movement asks customers to ask their clothing brands ‘Who Made My Clothes?’ – calling for greater transparency and an end to harmful labour practices in the garment industry.
The movement aims to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way that clothes are sourced, produced and purchased, so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.
This year, due to the Corona virus pandemic, all the activities will be online and Global!
