What is Fashion Revolution?
Fashion Revolution is a global movement that works for a more sustainable fashion industry, campaigning for systemic reform of the industry with a special focus on the need for greater transparency in the fashion supply chain. Fashion Revolution is a non-profit organisation with a presence in over 100 countries around the world.
April 2018 will mark the 5th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse and the launch of Fashion Revolution. During that time, millions of people all over the world have joined Fashion Revolution to demand a fairer, more transparent industry. It is clear that brands are listening and we are holding them to account.
To ensure they continue to listen and create the far reaching, permanent change needed to ensure we never see a tragedy like Rana Plaza again, we need everyone to join Fashion Revolution and keep asking one simple question: Who Made My Clothes?
"Fashion is a reflection of the culture we live in, so together we must change the culture that surrounds it into one that demands positive leadership, transparency, accountability, and better lives all round. The fashion industry should lead on ethics and sustainability.” – Orsola de Castro, Fashion Revolution Founder
