Fashion Revolution is a movement that was born as a result of the Rana Plaza tragedy on April 24, 2013 where over 2,000 people died and over 1,000 people were injured in the collapse of the garment factory. It is not just a day every year to memorialize those who were lost, but a movement to put pressure on fast-fashion companies to improve their working conditions as well as to encourage consumers to think about where their clothes come from: who made their clothes and how they were treated.
In April 2017, I co-organized Austin, Texas’ first Fashion Revolution with Jen Lewis of Purse & Clutch and Kasi Martin of The Peahen. We had a packed house at Soma Vida and the room was buzzing with exciting, thoughtful conversation during our discussion sessions. The night focused on three discussion sessions where attendees had a chance to select from six different topics. We wrapped up the night with a fun photobooth sponsored by Raven and Lily and gave away amazing items during our raffle! It was a lot of fun and we are happy to see so many people interested in making a change in the fashion industry! Check out our Speakers and Sponsors & Partners pages to see what the night was about and then browse photos of the event here.
