5 Ways to Become a Fashion Revolutionary in 2024

Fashion Revolution logo

"Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry. The goal is to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.”

Fashion Revolution started after the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Bangladesh in 2013, killing over 1,100 people. The tragedy shone a light on the dangerous and exploitative areas of the fashion industry and sparked a revolution calling for change through supply chain transparency.

The idea is that if there is transparency, consumers will have greater awareness of whether people are being exploited or the environment is being harmed. Fashion Revolution aims to restructure the fashion industry to prioritise people and the planet in supply chains.
