Fashion Revolution Week is the time when we, as the fashion industry and consumers, come together to create a better fashion industry for all. It centres around the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1,138 people and injured many more on 24 April 2013. This year, Fashion Revolution Week marks 8 years since the tragedy with a focus on the interconnectedness of human rights and the rights of nature.
As restrictions around the world continue to restrict in-person gatherings, Fashion Revolution Week once again will take place online, offering an array of free workshops, talks and screenings. Our fashion community will be joining the schedule through multiple workshops set to display the wealth of talent and skill within our membership.
