Fashion Revolution Day

Sometimes incidents from my upcoming calendar 365 Atrocities a Year make their way into this, the mother of all calendars. Fashion Revolution was created in 2013 in response to the Rana Plaza disaster on April 24 in Bangladesh in which 1133 garment workers died and over 2500 were injured.

Fashion designers Carry Somers and Orsola de Castro saw that the factory collapse could act as a catalyst for change in the industry.

Fashion Revolution campaigns for systemic reform of the fashion industry with a focus on the need for greater transparency in the fashion supply chain. Since 2013 millions of people around the world called on brands to answer the question Who Made My Clothes? The hashtag #whomademyclothes became the no.1 global trend on Twitter.
