Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry. They want to 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 Week is the #whomademyclothes campaign in April, which happens at the time of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, where 1,138 people were killed and many more injured on 24th April 2013. This week is to encourage millions of people to ask brands ‘Who made my clothes’ and demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain.
Fashion Revolution India along with Apurva Kothari of No Nasties will present the film ‘Slowing Down Fast Fashion’ and a talk by Orijit Sen ofPeople Tree about ethical practices of fashion. The film was launched during Fashion Revolution Week 2016 with the Campaign for Wool and is presented by Alex James, musician, writer and cheese maker. In 2016 it won the best fashion documentary award at The London Fashion Film Festival.
