At least 75 million people worldwide work in the fashion and textile industry, the vast majority of whom have to work in substandard safety conditions and for poor pay. Fashion Revolution is here to change all that with a massive awareness campaign aimed at shining a light on much-needed changes that can transform the industry.

Between April 24 and 30 each year the UK-based non-profit holds Fashion Revolution week all around the world to ask brands #WhoMadeMyClothes and demand greater transparency to help improve the working conditions and wages of the people who make the clothes we love.

“As consumers, we have power. We are the driver of trends and every time we buy something, we’re voting with our wallet. When we speak, brands listen,” Carry Somers, Fashion Revolution co-founder told Sustainable Brands. “We need to know that the people who clothe us are being paid enough to live with dignity.”

Dozens of brands already followed the organization’s call from previous years and published the suppliers and manufacturers of the clothes they sell. Fashion Revolution hopes to change the global mindset to bring people to be curious, ask questions, and show greater appreciation not only for the clothes they wear, but also for the millions of people behind the scenes.

Together we can use the power of fashion to inspire change.
