It’s almost time.
April 24, 2014 marks one year since the building collapse of Rana Plaza in Bangladesh, where 1133 garment factory workers needlessly died. In activism to never allow this tragedy to happen again, FASHION REVOLUTION is staging a world wide event to bring awareness to the issue, while promoting ethical & sustainable business practices in this lucrative industry.
“On this first anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster, we’ll start by remembering its victims and raising awareness of the fashion industry’s biggest challenges. But because we want fashion to be a force for good, we’ll also be celebrating fashion and spreading excitement about the power it has to make big change happen fast.”
To show your support, they are asking one simple question: Who Made Your Clothes?
They are asking everyone who’s part of Fashion Revolution Day to help by wearing an item of clothing inside out, photographing it and then sharing it with the hashtag #insideout.
Lets get creative together and wear this with confidence. You’ll be not only supporting the cause but making a cool fashion statement. And since its finally spring, I can already think of endless combo’s to rock the raw seams of my wardrobe! … inside out t-shirt’s with rolled-up sleeves, button-up’s, boy-friend jeans, knit pull-overs, denim jacket…!!!
YOUR CLOTHES ALREADY TELL A STORY ABOUT WHO YOU ARE. NOW THEY CAN TELL A BETTER ONE.
FASHION REVOLUTION has already garnered huge global support from 40 countries around the world and everyone from designers and icons, to high street shops, couture, cotton farmers and factory workers, to campaigners, academics, the media and any individual who cares about what they wear. They will all be sharing the same message of support, to bring transparency across the fashion supply chain.
