The 100 Million campaign is supporting 2019’s Fashion Revolution Week, which calls for a fairer, safer, more transparent fashion industry. This year Fashion Revolution Week (22-29 April) highlights how the future fashion industry must respect both people and planet with fair and decent work, environmental protection and gender equality. From Australia to Brazil, Uruguay to Vietnam, more than 3.25 million people are again expected to take part in Fashion Revolution Week by asking brands #whomademyclothes.
Over 1,000 Fashion Revolution events are being held in more than 100 countries around the world, from catwalks and clothes swaps, to film screenings, panel discussions, creative stunts, open studios and workshops. 100 Million has taken part in a student-led discussion and screening of The Price of Free, organised by the Fashion Revolution campaign at the University of the Arts, London.
Human rights abuses, gender inequality and environmental degradation remain rife in the fashion industry, including the exploitation of children as labourers: research shows that garments are among the items most at risk of being produced through modern slavery.
You can take part in the week too! To find out what’s happening in your area this Fashion Revolution Week or to find out more about the campaign, visit www.fashionrevolution.org.
