Join the Fashion Revolution
We're on count down to Fashion Revolution Week, if you don't know what that is let me explain. Back in 2013, 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 injured when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka Bangladesh on April 24th. That's when the Fashion Revolution was born.
On 18-24 April, Fashion Revolution Week will bring people from all over the world together to use the power of fashion to change the story for the people who make the world’s clothes and accessories. Last year, tens of thousands of people from over 70 countries took part in Fashion Revolution Day and asked brands #whomademyclothes to show that they care and demand better for the people who make our clothes.
This year I'm getting involved. We're all aware that the UK and America have some amazing designers and brands who are pioneers in slow fashion and transparent supply chains, but what about Australia and the good we do? I decided to take it upon myself to meet and interview six Australian based designers who are doing things differently, challenging fast fashion and putting ethics at the heart of everything they do.
Over the next six weeks, I will feature a different Australian designer on the ecomono blog. We will take a look at their latest collection, review their manufacturing process and discuss their thoughts on sustainable fashion. Each designer has their own unique voice and character, each picking a couple of battles with sustainability and creating beautiful clothes that make women feel great.
