What is Fashion Revolution Day?

Ten years ago, on April 24, 2013, 1,136 garment 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 seriously that they are still unable to work today.

A revolution in the fashion industry is still essential. The non-profit organization fashionrevolution.org therefore calls for Fashion Revolution Day every year on April 24. The aim is to set an example for more transparency and better working conditions in the textile industry.

Wear the difference.

Because you decide what you wear.

Sure, 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 has the power to make a positive difference with their own (purchasing) behavior - 365 days a year!

What you can do.
  • Make a conscious investment in sustainable fashion that will last you for many years.

  • Find out more and buy from manufacturers who guarantee transparency and fairness.

  • Ask your Favorite brands to commit to high social standards.

  • See for yourself the dark side of the fashion industry. For example with the impressive film "The True Cost - The Price of Fashion" or the podcast "WE ARE FASHION REVOLUTION" by Fashion Revolution Germany.

  • Your contribution against disposable fashion: care for, repair and (re)buy your clothes second-hand.

  • Follow and share the campaigns every year around Fashion Revolution Day.
