Welcome to Austin’s Fashion Revolution Day page!
We want to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased, so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.
We believe that collaborating across the whole supply chain; from farmer to consumer; is the only way to transform the entire industry.
WHY DO WE NEED A FASHION REVOLUTION?
On 24 April 2013, 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 were injured when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
That’s when Fashion Revolution was born.
We believe that 1,134 is too many people to lose from the planet in one factory on one terrible day to not stand up and demand change.
Every year, Fashion Revolution Day brings 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. We want fashion to become a force for good.
We believe in an industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure.
The FRD mission is to bring everyone together to make that happen.
