Today marks the inaugural kick off of Fashion Revolution Day. What is the significance you wonder? Fashion Revolution Day marks the first anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory disaster in Dhaka, Bangladesh which killed 1,134 people, and injured many more, when the factory complex collapsed. Today, people are still suffering as a direct result of the global fashion supply chain. Fashion Revolution Day says ‘enough is enough’. In honor of this mishap, some of the biggest names in ethical fashion including Ada Zanditon, Livia Firth, VV Brown and Mary Portas, have been photographed with their t-shirt inside out by famous British portrait photographer Trevor Leighton. The designers and celebrities have joined forces with people in more than 50 countries around the world for one day to raise awareness of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues and show that change is possible.
Fashion Revolution Day wants people to change the way they look at the clothes they wear with the challenge: Who Made Your Clothes? Members of the public can show their support by wearing an item of clothing inside out, photographing it and then sharing it on social media with the hashtag #insideout.
