It’s time to ask.
WHO MADE YOUR CLOTHES?
Fashion revolution? You are asking yourself what that is? Well it’s not about the latest trends or how to style yourself revolutionary. It’s actually a more serious topic.
As you know in 2013 a horrible accident happened at the Rana Plaza Building in Bangladesh. The building – used as a garment factory – collapsed and over 1100 people died and many more thousand got injured. On top of that, some fast fashion retailer weren’t even sure whether their clothes were produced at Rana Plaza that time or not. That’s the thing about fast fashion. It has gotten so fast that not even the brands know where their items come from.
How to get involved?
