Fashion Friday | #FashionRevolution

If I remember correctly, I wrote a similar post about Fashion Revolution Day this time last year after watching a particularly harrowing BBC documentary on the Rana Plaza collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Rana-Plaza

It’s such a worthy cause that it warrants an entire blog post every year this blog is running, if just to help spread awareness.

I used to be one of those people who happily snapped up the £2 top they’d just seen on offer in Primark, until I watched the documentary and got an insight into the sheer exploitation some brands put their workers through.

11133 people lost their lives in the Rana Plaza collapse and over 2500 were injured.

Fashion Revolution  was established to raise awareness of who makes our clothes, in an effort to try and stop exploitation and tragedies such as the Rana Plaza disaster happening again.

In short, their mission is to bring everyone together to create a fashion industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure.

You can find out all about how to get involved with the campaign here. Something as simple as typing out 140 characters on Twitter or posting an Instagram can help the movement.

So today, on the second anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster, I urge you to join the Fashion Revolution and ask #whomademyclothes.
