Fashion Revolution is back for a third year from 18-24th April, calling for greater transparency in the global fashion supply chain.
Celebrating those on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion. Fashion Revolution is composed of key figures from the fashion industry and beyond: industry leaders; press; campaigners; consultants; representatives from charities and campaign organisations: academics and more all taking part. Country co-ordinators span 86 countries around the world and believe in fashion as an industry which values people, the environment, creativity and profits in equal measure and it’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure that this happens. Fashion Revolution week’s mission is to bring everyone together to make that happen.
Celebrity supporters and fashion lovers in 86 countries around the world are being asked to show their support with a ‘label selfie’ to ask brands #whomademyclothes across social media during Fashion Revolution Week 18 – 24th April. Following the success of the inaugural Fashion Revolution Day in 2014, models Cameron Russell and Amber Valetta, Mariah Idrissi, Eco Age founder Livia Firth and bloggers Susie Lau, Gregory Davalos, Jenny Ong and Rachel Nguyen are just some of the names expected to take part in this year’s campaign.
Leading up to 24 April, Fashion Revolution would like you to take part:
- Show your clothing label. You could turn your clothes inside out to make more of a statement.
- Follow that brand on social media with this message: “I want to thank the people who made my clothes, @brand #whomademyclothes?”
In a week-long series of activities and events, supporters around the world will challenge global fashion brands to demonstrate commitment to transparency across the length of the value chain, from farmers to factory workers, brands to buyers and consumers.
