Ethical instalment: Fashion revolution

Fashion Revolution is based in the UK and is a not for profit Community Interest Company

Their mission it to transform the fashion industry in to a place which values people, the environment, creativity and profits in equal measure, and they believe it’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure that this happens.

Fashion revolution was born after the Rana Plaza disaster.


Now on every 24th April 'Fashion Revolution Day' is held, to bring people from all over the world together to use the power of fashion to change the story for the people who make the world’s clothes. 


Fashion revolution believes that transparency is the first step to transform the industry. 
They are asking everyone to start asking brands the question : Who made my clothes? 
By using social media especially, this one simple question has already gained the Fashion Revolution movement a lot of momentum. 
There are now over 80 countries worldwide taking part in Fashion Revolution.


The Fashion Revolution has been sparked offline too, with over 800 Fashion Revolution events taking place all over the world in April alone, including film screenings, craftivist workshops, clothes swaps, panel discussions, catwalk presentations and creative stunts.

Save the date 24-30 April 2017, when Fashion Revolution Week will happen again and in the mean time, keep asking #whomademyclothes. 

Why?

About 75 million people work directly in the fashion and textiles industry, and about 80% of them are women. Many are subject to exploitation; verbal and physical abuse, working in unsafe conditions, with very little pay. This is why the ‘who made my clothes’ question is still hugely important.
