Fashion Revolution - Who Made My Clothes?
On 24 April 2013, 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 were injured when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
It is considered the deadliest garment-factory accident in history.
The Rana Plaza contained clothing factories, a bank, apartments, and several shops. The shops and the bank on the lower floors immediately closed after cracks were discovered in the building, however the building’s owners ignored warnings to avoid using the building after cracks had appeared the day before. Garment workers were ordered to return the following day, and the building collapsed during the morning rush-hour.
The Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association president confirmed that 3,122 workers were in the building at the time of the collapse. 1,134 of which were killed.
It has been said that more than half of the victims were women, along with a number of their children who were in nursery facilities within the building.
That’s when Fashion Revolution was born.
‘We believe that’s too many people to lose on one day.’
We believe that fashion can be made in a safe, clean and beautiful way. Where creativity, quality, environment and people are valued equally.
On 23rd-29th April, Fashion Revolution Week will bring 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 and accessories.’
‘We need greater transparency in the fashion supply chain because we can’t improve conditions or protect the environment without knowing where our clothes are made. We need to challenge brands and retailers to take responsibility for the people and communities on which their business depends.’
