This Fashion Revolution Week we’ve interviewed eight of our inspirational brands about the importance of transparency and conscious fashion, as well as asking the ultimate fashion revolution question: Who Made My Clothes? Read on to find out more about what inspired Fashion Revolution Week, and what our brands have to say about the transparency of their supply chains.
On 24 April 2013 the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed. 1,138 people died and another 2,500 were injured. It was on this day that the world was made starkly aware of the cost of fashion—five garment factories were inside the building making clothes for global brands. Almost all of the victims were young women.
It was on this day, that the Fashion Revolution was born. It emerged from a group of people that love fashion, but don’t want clothes to come at the cost of people, or planet.
Commemorated once a year, Fashion Revolution Week is a chance to create a growing conscience among consumers to know and care more about the faces, families, and lives behind fashion, and to demand transparency in the sector by asking brands ‘Who Made My Clothes’?
Gather & See stands firmly alongside Fashion Revolution, seeing it as our duty to share beautiful fashion that promotes equality, decent livelihoods, and doesn’t (literally) cost the earth. We are so excited to keep identifying fabulous brands that have the same mind-set as us, and this Fashion Revolution Week, we’re sharing their stories with you.
We have interviewed eight of our brands, asking them about transparency in their supply chains, the people and stories behind their clothes, and why being a conscious consumer is so important. We’re thrilled to be able to share their stories with you, along with some of the faces of the amazing men and women that are making our clothes and jewellery this year.
