Fashion Revolution Week 2021

Fashion Revolution Week 2021

The Fashion Revolution Week will take place again from 19th – 25th April 2021.
The Fashion Revolution Day was introduced as a global day of action after one of the largest textile factories, named Rana Plaza, collapsed in Bangladesh on 24 April 2013, killing 1138 people. The day of action now takes place annually, has been expanded to a whole week of action and is intended to provide more transparency and more “fair fashion” in the fashion industry.
Of course, a revolution in the fashion industry cannot be limited to just one week a year. The English organisation Fashion Revolution is committed to change and improvement throughout the year and has already triggered a worldwide movement.
The annual Fashion Revolution Week also features the #whomademyclothes campaign, which encourages brands and producers to respond with the hashtag #imadeyourclothes and demonstrate transparency in their supply chain.

For IRIEDAILY a transparent supply chain has always been part of the company’s philosophy. That is why we are happy to participate in this campaign. See here some people who work in our production facilities in Portugal and China. Especially during these difficult times, it is important to show that every human has a voice that needs to be heard. Let’s value the people who make our clothes!

In addition, Fashion Revolution Germany calls on people to wear their clothes inside out on Fashion Revolution Day and thus show the label “Made in…”. We are happy to participate in this campaign as well and have asked some IRIEWORKERS to contribute a few photos for the campaign. The photo series will be online in the coming days. Here is a sneak preview from Christian:
If you also wanted to participate in the campaign, you can find the assets and templates here!
