Högsta bud —

On this day five years ago, 1,138 garment workers were killed as the Rana Plaza factory in Bangladesh collapsed. It marked the start of Fashion Revolution Week, a global movement involving designers, academics, writers, business leaders, policymakers, brands, retailers, marketers, producers, makers, workers and fashion lovers. Fashion Revolution wants to unite people and organisations to work together towards radically changing the way our clothes are sourced, produced and consumed, so that our clothing is made in a safe, clean and fair way.

Today, brands and producers are encouraged to respond to the hashtag #whomadeyourclothes with the hashtag #imadeyourclothes and to demonstrate transparency in their supply chain.

As a consumer, ask your favorite brands #whomadeyourclothes? And if they don’t reply, ask again and again (here are some more templates for you to use).  Show that you want a fashion industry that is fair, safe and beautiful for everyone.

And take some time today to read some of the Rana Plaza survivors’ stories.
