Ever since the Rana Plaza tragedy on 24 April, 2013, when 1133 garment workers were killed and over 2500 were injured in a factory complex collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh, pioneers of ethical style have honoured their memory and forged change by coming together on 24 April to discuss new ways to make fashion more sustainable and humane.
The garment industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world, but it’s also rife with horrifying working conditions and abuse – and we’re not only talking fast fashion. A global revolution is much needed in the entire realm of fashion in order to create a new way of thinking and pave the way for new processes and practices that will make the industry more sustainable in the long run.
To participate in the global Fashion Revolution movement on 24 April, you are invited to:
1. Turn a garment inside out
2. Reveal the swing tag or label
3. Take a selfie
4. Upload to the social media channel of your choice
5. Tag the brand you’re wearing and use the hashtags #WhoMadeMyClothes?and #FashRev
Vilda will be participating in Fashion Revolution with a very special project inv0lving some of our favourite cruelty-free bloggers – stay tuned!
