Fashion Revolution Week is all about awareness. The #whomademyclothes campaign runs from April 23-29 each year, falling on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse which killed 1138 people in 2013. During Fashion Revolution Week, brands and producers are encouraged to demonstrate transparency in their supply chain, and it’s something we’re more than happy to do at The Fashion Advocate.
The information surrounding ethics can be overwhelming and convoluted, which is why we’re releasing 'The Fashion Advocate Transparency Guide' – a series of simple posts to unpack the supply chains of the Australian designers and labels in The Fashion Advocate community. Over Fashion Revolution Week, we'll be sharing the stories behind each one of our labels, and answering questions about manufacturing and ethics, to drive change and push for improvement in the fashion industry.
As a community, we take responsibility for the impact that our industry has on people and the planet and our designers are at the forefront of the revolution. They're passionate about ensuring that all workers are paid fair wages, offered safe working conditions and ensured workers’ rights throughout her entire design, sourcing and manufacturing chain.
Stay tuned and pop back every day next week for a behind-the-scenes look into the studios of our designers.
