Why you should join the conversation
Fashion Revolution is an international campaign advocating for a fashion industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. This year on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster six years – when a clothing factory collapsed, killing 1,138 people and injuring many more – we will discuss solutions and interrogate alternative ways of producing fashion. You will learn what the Fashion Revolution does, why it does this, and you’ll hear from people who are proving what fashion can be with respect to both people and planet.
