And if this revolution is all new to you - here’s the rundown:
- Fashion Revolution was started as a call to action after the devastation of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh on the 24th April 2013. To date, it is the deadliest garment factory disaster with 1134 people losing their lives + 2500 people injured.
- The movement, in its 7th year, began by consumers turning their clothing inside out to ask one of the most important questions in the fashion industry: "WHO MADE MY CLOTHES?"
- This week is a week to commemorate the lives lost, but to also acknowledge the incredible makers who produce our clothes worldwide.
- 80% of garment workers are female, so it's a week where we stand in solidarity with our sisters around the world to fight for a better fashion system that provides Womnx the dignity + basic human rights they deserve.

This is a feminist issue - this is a workers rights issue - and we know who made our clothes! This dress was made locally right here in the inner west by Dragstar.
