Today (24th March) marks the second anniversary of the collapse of the Rana Plaza building, an apparel manufacturing plant near Dhaka in Bangladesh. In consequence of this tragedy, Fashion Revolution Day was initiated last year to set a memento and remind the fashion industry to change their existing operations, turning them into sustained production methods and better conditions for their workers in affected manufacturing countries. Moreover, Fashion Revolution Day shall monitor the work of fashion companies who already employ ethically justifiable manufacturing conditions.

Following the theme ‘Who made my clothes?’, the Fashion Revolution Day initiative has encouraged designers, photographers, shop owners, education centers as well as social organizations from more than 70 countries to take part in lectures, interactive events, workshops and digital campaigns.

From events like a pop up store in Brisbane (24.-25.04), to a festival in Helsinki or a fair fashion tour through selected fair fashion concept stores in Berlin, just to name a few,  the fashion industry sends a clear signal for more sustainability.
