Why do we need a Fashion Revolution?
The Rana Plaza garment factory collapse led to people all over the world asking questions about their clothes. Who made them? Where? With what pay and conditions? With what environmental consequences? What kinds of lives do garment workers live? Do things have to be like this? Does all of the fashion industry source its clothes from places like the Rana Plaza? What can we do as consumers and as citizens if we don’t like what we find? Read more about why we need a Fashion Revolution here.
The impact of Fashion Revolution
The first Fashion Revolution Day took place on 24 April 2014 to mark the first anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster. The second Fashion Revolution Day in 2015 was a resounding success with far-reaching results. Every year more people, brands, retailers and producers get involved in more countries. Read more here
Take a look at our Pinterest board to see how many educators and their students got involved.
The importance of young people
The clothing industry touches everybody’s lives and is a truly global industry with massive social and environmental impact. Fashion Revolution calls on all of us to be curious about our clothes, the people who made them and the brands and retailers who can make things better.
Young people are an important market for the clothing industry, as active consumers today and consumers and employees of the future. Many of us have lost the connection between the clothes we wear and the people who make them. Brands and retailers should be telling us more about the people in their supply chains. Read more here
Fashion Revolution offers educators a great opportunity to explore with their students the many issues within the industry: such as globalisation, workers’ rights, supply chain transparency, material sourcing, global citizenship, sustainable development and ethical business practices.
