On 24 April 2013, 1133 people were killed and over 2500 injured when the Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
The site of a major garment factory for brands including Mango, Primark and Benetton, the Rana Plaza tragedy was a shocking wake-up call to the fast fashion industry and its customers.
24 April 2015 marks two years since and Fashion Revolution Day – a now annual event raising awareness of the true cost of fashion. Social and environmental catastrophes in our fashion supply chains continue.
Fashion Revolution Day says enough is enough.
This year’s theme is ‘Who Made My Clothes’ (meaning not just which brand, literally, who?) Imagine the thread from the garment, to the machinist who sewed it, all the way down to the farmer who grew the cotton.
Sunday Tracker will be wearing our clothes inside out this year, pushing for greater transparency in the supply chain.
Fashion Revolution Day isn’t just about shaming and challenging fast fashion, it demonstrates change is possible and celebrates all those involved in creating a more sustainable future for fashion.
Our brands know where their products come from and the artisans that make them. Who made your clothes?
