Fashion Revolution Day is today. Last year ,close to 1200 people were killed and over 2500 were injured when the Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Social and environmental catastrophes in our fashion supply chains continues to grow because in the last year 3 of 4 worse tragedies in global apparel industry has happened.
Fashion Revolution Day says enough is enough! Its organization is encourage consumers to be curious and find out who made your clothes — from who spun the threads, to who sewed them together, to who grew the cotton in the first place.
The goal is to get consumers to be curious! find out! Do something! The organization is asking the public to wear their clothes inside out April 24 and encourage people to start asking ‘who made my clothes?’ in order to initiate human connections throughout the supply chain.
Fashion Revolution Day is the day on which we will celebrate fashion as a positive influence, and all those who contribute to making it so the organization starting the movement to spark an annual Fashion Revolution Day on April 24 in order to keep the most vulnerable in the supply chain in the public eye.
The organization states "We need it to show the world that change is possible. The true cost of the current fashion business model must not be forgotten. The churn of the 24 hour news cycle, complacency and distraction means unless we stamp our resolve here and now, Rana Plaza will be dismissed as an unfortunate reality of contemporary life"
