Tommorrow, April 24th is Fashion Revolution Day. A day which has been planned and prepared for since the devastating Rana Plaza factory collapse on 24th April 2013. The day is organised and supported by many working towards change in the fashion industry including Cary Somers of ethical fashion brand Pachacuti and Orsola De Castro of From Somewhere and co founder of Estethica at London Fashion Week.
On 24th April 2013, 1133 people were killed and over 2500 were injured when the
Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Catastrophes in our fashion supply chains continue. Fashion Revolution Day says enough is enough.
Fashion Revolution Day is all about raising awareness of the true cost of fashion, showing the world that change is possible, and celebrating all those involved in creating a more sustainable future for fashion. This year the theme is #InsideOut
You can get involved by
- Being Curious – Choose an item from your outfit and wear it #insideout all day
- Finding Out – Write a letter/email, Facebook or Tweet the brand concerned, ask them Who Made Your Clothes?
- Doing Something – Tweet: Today I’m wearing my (shirt/dress/T-shirt etc.) #insideout because I want to ask @(brand/retailer) Who Made My Clothes?
