It’s time for a Fashion Revolution #whomademyclothes
April 26, 2017
Hi loves! Meaby you’ve already noticed this but it’s time for a Fashion Revolution! During this week you can learn anything and attend a lot of events that tell stories about the ‘real’ fashion industry.
Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability, and ethics in the fashion industry. Worldwide there are a lot of country’s organizing events to make people aware of ‘The True Costs’.
FASHION SHOULD FEEL GOOD.
‘Much of the global fashion industry is opaque, exploitative and environmentally damaging and desperately needs revolutionary change. We love fashion, but we don’t want our clothes to come at the cost of people or our planet.’- Fashion Revolution.
During Fashion Revolution Week the #whomademyclothes campaign will be shown everywhere on Social Media. A lot of people aren’t aware of who exactly are making their clothing. A few years ago, at 24th April 2013, the Rana Plaza factory collapsed that killed and injured more than 1,138 people. A lot of them were children. By asking your brand #whomademyclothes you will help to increase the transparency in the clothing supply chain.
Fashion Revolution Netherlands
In The Netherlands – where I live- are tons of activities. Check the website for the events everywhere in the world. Last year I went to the event in Utrecht and I made this video (little bit awkward I know, lol).
But what can you do yourself? Well, one of the first things that you can do is:
1. Ask your favorite brand on Social Media #whomademyclothes? You will encourage them to be open about their supply chain and brands that are making a difference the opportunity to promote sustainable fashion in a good way.
2. Download this PDF and discover which of the top 100 brands in the world are sustainable.
3. Invest 10 minutes of your time in reading this article about the Rana Plaza factory.
By every penny or euro you spend, you can make a statement. Buy less, enjoy more and shop wisely. You can be the change that you want to see in this world. Gandhi was right about that, I think!
