Fashion Revolution Day
On April 24th, 2013 the Rana Plaza complex in Dhaka, Bangladesh collapsed killing over 1.000 people. On that day – exactly four years ago – a new very important “event” was born: Fashion Revolution Day. Thousands of people from all over the world are turning their clothes outwards in order to ask the brands: Who made my clothes?
In Fashion Revolution Week, the week around April 24th people start asking who happened to work on their cheep jeans, their seven-Euro-dress and how it is possible that a cotton t-shirt costs three to five Euro, even though they would need at least two or three hours sewing it.
And also we ask these questions. In this week we wanna point out the problems of fashion industry, talk about sensitive topics and give you information you might not know at the moment. We prepared blog posts to do exactly that job. But this one Fashion Revolution Week in a year is not enough. We have to start thinking more often, we have to start thinking every day. We have to take the information and do something with it, we mustn’t forget in order to make a real change. We have to stop supporting the big fast fashion brands and sweat shops and maybe forgetting the new piece of clothing just the next day. For changing something we have to work on us and keep in mind. Every step counts.
And YOU can make a change, too.
