Fashion Revolution Week (April 22nd - 28th) | Events in London

Fashion Revolution is a global movement that appreciates and loves fashion but hopes to spark progressive, and much needed, change in the industry. The foundation works to scrutinise industry practices and raise awareness for pressing social and environmental issues.

Fashion Revolution Week (Monday, April 22nd - Sunday, April 28th)

Beginning on Earth Day and encompassing the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which took place on April 24th, 2013, Fashion Revolution Week will encourage people to recognise the apparel industry’s environmental impact, value quality over quantity, and ask retailers and producers for transparency by using the hashtag #WhoMadeMyClothes.

Orsola de Castro, Co-founder and Creative Director said: “For Fashion Revolution Week 2019, we will be campaigning for a fashion industry where dignity in work, gender equality and environmental protection is the standard, and not an exception…”

More than 275 million people in over 100 countries are expected to take part in events and activities such as clothing swaps, film screenings, panel discussions, workshops and much more!
