Fashion Revolution Week participants asking #whomademyclothes

Who made your clothes? If you don't know, it's time to ask. Fashion Revolution Week (April 23rd to 29th 2018) marks the fifth anniversary of the Rana Plaza clothing factory disaster in which 1,138 people lost their lives. It led a lot of shoppers to think about the workers actually behind their clothes – real people in real places, often working in poverty, polluted environments and unsafe working conditions.

Fashion Revolution Week is all about demanding greater transparency in the fashion supply chain, which means asking brands directly about their manufacturing policies. It's the ultimate fashion statement: turn your clothes inside out to reveal the label, take a photo and send it to fashion brands with the hashtag #whomademyclothes. Millions of people take part every year and it really does make retailers and designers sit up and take notice.

This video wraps it all up in a minute.

 
The brands that do know who make their clothes will play a big part – look out for photos online garment workers holding signs saying 'I made your clothes'. Could they have made yours? There are offline events and campaigns happening throughout Fashion Revolution Week, such as the London Sustainable Fashion Rooms curated by Po-Zu.
