Do you know who made your clothes?
On 24 April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. 1,138 people died and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history.
That’s when Fashion Revolution was born. There were five garment factories in Rana Plaza all manufacturing clothing for big global brands. The victims were mostly young women.
Have you ever wondered who made your clothes? How much they’re paid, and what their lives are like? Our clothes have gone on a long journey before they hit store shelves, passing through the hands of cotton farmers, spinners, weavers, dyers, sewers and others.
Approximately 75 million people work to make our clothes. 80% of them are women between the ages of 18 and 35. Today, both people and the environment suffer as a result of the way fashion is made, sourced and consumed.
This needs to change! Join the fashion revolution!
