On the 24th April 2013 the Rana Plaza factory collapse killed 1,138 people and injured a further 2500. The garment factories in Rana Plaza were manufacturing clothing for global brands the workers were mainly young women.
Fashion Revolution Week takes place each year on the anniversary of the disaster with its motto #whomademyclothes the campaign urges us to contact brands and ask ‘Who made my clothes’ and demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain.
As a global movement Fashion Rev is fighting for the rights and safety of workers throughout the fashion supply chain and highlighting the industry's huge environmental impact and material wastage.
It is not anti fashion but driven by people who love clothes. The understanding that truly beautiful products cannot be made through others suffering communicated with a fierce attitude and intelligence is really inspiring.
So if you haven't already use the form on Fashion Revs website and ask your favourite brands Who Made My Clothes.
