The story behind Fashion Revolution 

In 2013, the Rana Plaza Garment Factory in Bangladesh collapsed. The eight-storey building crashed down, killing over 1,000 factory workers in what was one of the worst industrial disasters in history. 

In the aftermath, many questions were raised about the accountability of the government, the working conditions at these factories, and the need for greater transparency in the fashion supply chain. 

From it, Fashion Revolution was born.

The Mission 

Fashion Revolution is a global movement passionate about sustainable fashion. 

The Revolution is all about raising awareness, advocating for positive change, and creating a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion. In other words, it's style with conscience.
