Fashion Revolution

WHY DO WE NEED A FASHION REVOLUTION?


On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. 1,133 people died and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.

That’s when Fashion Revolution was born.

There were five garment factories in Rana Plaza all manufacturing clothing for the western market. The victims were mostly young women. We believe that 1,133 is too many people to lose from the planet in one building, on one terrible day to not stand up and demand change.

Since then, people from all over the world have come together to use the power of fashion to change the world.

Fashion Revolution is now a global movement of people like you.

We’re here to tell a different story about the clothes we wear.

We believe that positive change can happen if we all think differently about fashion and demand better. We want a cleaner, safer, fairer, more transparent and more accountable fashion and textiles industry. 

We want fashion to become a force for good. We believe in an industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure.

Knowledge, information, honesty. These three things have the power to transform the industry. And it starts with one simple question: Who made my clothes?
