For the one year anniversary of the Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh, the Fashion Revolution are asking you to find out

Who Made Your Clothes?

We’re curious about food provenance, being sure to buy local and organic but consumers seem to be happy to buy clothes regardless of where they come from, or who made them. It’s time for all of that to change.

The clothes we choose say a lot about who we are. Let’s let them tell their whole story. The Fashion Revolution organisers are asking you to wear your clothes inside out on April 24th – with the tags visible – to show the world that you’ve found out where your clothes come from. The aim is to raise awareness and spark a change in the fashion world that will lead to a more sustainable industry.

Take a photo of your inside out look and share it on social media with the hashtag #InsideOut and tag it with @Fash_Rev. Get your kids involved! Your children will love this and will learn so much about being responsible consumers.

INSIDE OUT (3)

If your little punks have clothes from @TheFableists, then they are already part of the revolution because we tell the whole journey of our clothes on this blog. Please tag @TheFableists on any photos you share of our clothes on social media.

Have fun with this and be sure to join in. Don’t let another year go by without making a change in the way you buy clothes.

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.
