On April 24th, 2013, 1,133 people died when the Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. They were killed while working in sub-par conditions for familiar fashion brands.
Last year, on the first anniversary of this disaster, Fashion Revolution began as a way to call for transparency and change in the fashion supply chain. Fashion Revolutions is backed by a global coalition of designers, academics, writers, business leaders, and parliamentarians calling for systemic reform. We at Artful Home wholeheartedly support this mission.
In their own words, Fashion Revolution organizers explain: “By asking consumers, designers, brands, and all those who care to ask the simple question, ‘Who Made My Clothes?’ we envisage a change in perspective that will lead to a deeper understanding.”
We know our artists and designers by name. We have shaken the hands that sew our clothes. We support these people who create such extraordinary things and make a living through sharing their work with us — and we gladly bring the beauty they create into our closets and lives.
Join us and show your support for a change in the fashion industry. Share a selfie of what you’re wearing and ask #WhoMadeMyClothes?
