Fashion Revolution Week, the annual global campaign calling for a fairer, safer, more transparent fashion industry, will run from Monday 22nd – Sunday 28th April 2019.
This year Fashion Revolution Week will highlight how the future fashion industry must respect both people and planet with fair and decent work, environmental protection and gender equality. From Australia to Brazil, Uruguay to Vietnam, more than 275 million people are again expected to take part in Fashion Revolution Week by asking brands #whomademyclothes.
The campaign will kick off on Earth Day, Monday 22nd April, when Fashion Revolution will announce that it has signed the UN Fashion Charter for Climate Action, signalling the start of a greater campaigning focus on educating the public about the devastating impact of the fashion industry on global warming, and offering positive actions we can all take to reduce the carbon footprint of our clothes. Fashion Revolution will also take a stand against the environmental threat to our planet by declaring a Climate and Ecological Emergency.
Over 1,000 Fashion Revolution events will be held in more than 100 countries around the world, from catwalks and clothes swaps, to film screenings, panel discussions, creative stunts, open studios and workshops.
We have been invited to help celebrate Fashion Revolution Week and we'll be at Beyond Retro on Saturday 27th. In collaboration with No Planet B Community, the event will see talks, panel discussion, live music, ethical stalls, vegan food and networking!
