GFW have partnered with Fashion Revolution to do a Q+A with questions from this generations fashion revolutionaries aka you! Fashion Revolution are a global movement that begun in 2013. During April of 2013, the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh collapsed killing 1,138 people and injuring over 2500. The ethical liabilities and lack of fair trade are the reason industrial tragedies occur like this one, and Fashion Revolution have come together and fought for equitable treatment for not only the workers but the consumers too.
“FASHION REVOLUTION IS A GLOBAL MOVEMENT
CALLING FOR A FAIRER, SAFER, CLEANER,
MORE TRANSPARENT FASHION INDUSTRY”
Fashion Revolution believes in a fashion industry that values consumers, workers, our planet, diversity in creativity and encouraging profit in equal measure is a positive and aspiring start to making the industry more transparent and open.
Do you know where your clothes were made? Do you know how much the factory worker was paid to make it? Are the working conditions safe and clean? Fashion Revolution understands that as sustainable and humane customers, we must know the full journey of our garments.
There are so many ways that the youth of today, graduates and fashion students can make a difference towards the future of fashion. Sustainability is becoming a huge influence on upcoming designers and creatives and Fashion Revolution can help you campaign the importance of these collections and prospective ideas for a new vision for the fashion world.
We want you to get in touch with questions for the incredible campaign workers that make up Fashion Revolution. Are you unsure on how to creative an ethical collection? Do you want to join in the future campaigns or protests?
During Fashion Revolution Week, we encourage as many people as possible to ask #whomademyclothes? Now is your time to get the insights you need! You can get in touch with GFW and Fashion Revolution via our Instagram page @officialgfw, or comment below!
