It’s Fashion Revolution Week

 

 

Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency in the fashion industry. 

This week, alongside people from all over the world, we will collectively reimagine a just and equitable fashion system for people and the planet.

 

 

The 24th of April reflects the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in 2013. Rana Plaza, a building in Bangladesh, housed a number of garment factories, employing around 5,000 people. The people in this building were manufacturing clothing for many of the biggest global fashion brands. More than 1,100 people – mostly young women – died in the collapse and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.

 

 

No one should die for fashion. Here at Trade Aid, we support transparency in global supply chains and trade that benefits the people who make our stuff.

You can support Fashion Revolution Week from 18th – 24th April by asking brands #WhoMadeMyClothes. Your voice can change the system! 

 

We asked our partner-groups if they would like to get involved, and we are so excited to share the photos some of them have sent through, so you can see just how awesome they are!
