It's your decision.

What is Fashion Revolution Day?

10 years ago, on April 24, 2013, 1,136 textile workers lost their lives in the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory building near Dhaka in Bangladesh, and over 2,000 people were injured, some so severely that they are still unable to work today.

These figures proved once again that a revolution in the fashion industry is essential. The non-profit organization fashionrevolution.org therefore calls for Fashion Revolution Day every year on April 24. Fashion Revolution is a global movement for more transparency in the fashion industry. On April 24, all supporters of the campaign wear their clothes inside out. The point is to set a sign for more transparency and better working conditions in the textile industry.

Wear the difference.

Because you decide what you wear.

Of course, the fashion brands decide whether they pay attention to socially fair working conditions at their producers - but you decide which brand you trust. That's why everyone personally has the power to make a positive difference with their own (buying) behavior - 365 days a year! Our tip: Get a picture of the dark side of the fashion industry for yourself. For example, with the impressive film "The True Cost - The Price of Fashion." And then decide what you yourself would like to do for a fairer (fashion) world.

Invest consciously.
  • in sustainable fashion that will accompany you for many years.

  • Inform yourself and buy from manufacturers who guarantee transparency and fairness.

  • Challenge your favorite brands to commit to high social standards.

  • Wear your clothes inside out on April 24 and post a photo of them with the hashtag #fashionrevolutionday and #whomademyclothes.

  • Follow and share our actions each year around Fashion Revolution Day.
