Eco Fashion and her newest book Refashioned, invited me to join the Fashion Revolution campaign in support of the people who make our clothes and all fashion items. As a designer of sustainable clothing and fashion since 1993 and through my work with Amazon artisans, this is a movement that I stand behind 100%.
Started in the UK, it is growing into a global movement as more people want to know who makes their clothes, accessories, shoes and all fashion items… and more companies are adding ethical and sustainable practices into their ethos.
On April, 24th, 2014, the one year anniversary of one of the worst disasters in recent years in the apparel industry, fashion leaders, factory workers, producers, activists, academics, press, consumers, cotton farmers will come together to remember the victims of Rana, Bangladesh and change our fashion future.
Fashion Revolution Day is an opportunity to celebrate fashion as a positive influence, raise awareness of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues and show that change is possible. We intend to rally fast fashion, luxury, innovators, media, the public, activists, makers, wearers – and everyone in between. You can learn more at Fashion Revolution USA and Fashion Revolution UK. Join the Fashion Revolution movement and on April 24th, wear your clothes #insideout.
