On 24 April 2013, 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 were injured when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. This building collapsed despite many workers point out cracks in walls to their managers weeks before. Fashion Revolution was born to raise awareness of disasters like Rana Plaza and to catalyze action to transform the fashion industry into a more ethical, fair and sustainable one. They believe that fashion can be made in a safe, clean and beautiful way, where creativity, quality, environment and people are valued equally.
On 18-24 April, Fashion Revolution Week will bring people from all over the world together to use the power of fashion to change the story for the people who make the world’s clothes and accessories.
