On April 24th last year, 1133 people were killed when the Rana Plaza factory collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Many more were injured. Today, people are still suffering as a direct result of our fashion supply chain. Fashion Revolution Day says enough is enough.
This year, to mark the one year anniversary of the factory collapse, people from across the globe – from designers and icons, to high street shops and high couture, from cotton farmers and factory workers, to campaigners, academics, the media and any individual who cares about what they wear – will come together to ask one simple question: “Who Made Your Clothes?”
Everyone can be part of Fashion Revolution Day by wearing an item of clothing inside out, photographing it and then sharing it with the hashtag #insideout. To all of The Fableists, wear your clothes from The Fableists and add the hashtag #TheFableists to your post. That way, our tribe can show their support for better connections and transparency across the fashion supply chain.
