Support Fashion Revolution Day #InsideOut 24-04-14

Fashion Revolution Day commemorates the first anniversary of the illegally constructed eight-storey Rana Plaza factory tragedy in Dhaka, Bangladesh, which left 1,133 men, women and children dead, over 2500 injured and at least 800 children orphaned. On the 24th of April each year, Fashion Revolution Day aims to raise global awareness of the true cost of fashion, saying enough is enough.

“It took a tragedy on an epic scale to take the subject of ethical fashion from the specialist pages of the liberal press and make it headline news across the world.

Subsequent headlines detailed untold horrors: illegally run, poorly-built factories, desperately bad pay, foul mistreatment of (mainly female, often underage) workers and a system of mind-numbingly slow bureaucracy which would prevent compensation getting to the survivors.

By the year’s end Bangladesh was rife with violent protests and the outcry surrounding the politics of garment manufacture sent tremors around the world.” – Vogue.co.uk

The theme for Fashion Revolution Day is “Who Made Your Clothes?”. It is about transparency and connections – reconnecting the relationships of fashion which have been lost and the connection with the clothes that we wear. It is about becoming more curious about where and how our clothes were made.
