Join the Fashion Revolution
On April 24, 2013, over 2,500 were injured and 1,134 people were killed when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Born out of that tragedy, the Fashion Revolution campaign began a new movement to wake up people to the continued injustice in the garment industry.
We believe that fashion can be made in a safe, clean and beautiful way. Where creativity, quality, environment and people are valued equally. From April 24-30, Fashion Revolution Week will bring people from all over the world together to use the power of our voice and what we wear to change the story for the people who make the world’s clothes and accessories.
Last year, in more than 92 countries around the world, tens of thousands of people took part in Fashion Revolution Week. We asked brands #whomademyclothes to show that we care and demand better working conditions for the people who make our clothes. Join with us again to demand change.
What You Can Do
- Join the conversation on social media to help the campaign reach as far and wide as possible: Share our posts with your networks on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and hashtag with #FashRev.
Commit to buying ethically sourced clothes. We've greatly expanded our collections to offer a wider selection of ethical apparel. Come back often for our handpicked recommendations for both men’s and women’s looks that are stylish and sustainable.
Read up on the “slow fashion” movement, a cycle of designing, making, and purchasing garments for quality and longevity, with consideration for slower production schedules, fair wages, and better working conditions.
- Take stock of the brands you currently own. Turn your tag inside out and snap a picture of the label. Tweet at the brand with #whomademyclothes. Ask for industry accountability by demanding greater transparency in the supply chain.
- Write a postcard to a policymaker and ask them what they’re doing to create a fairer, safer, cleaner, more transparent fashion industry. Your voice has power, so use it! Here's a template from the campaign to make it easy.
Together, we can make real progress in changing inequitable supply chains!
