Fashion Revolution Week April 24-30

Fashion Revolution Week marks the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, which took the lives of 1,134 garment workers. Every April the Fashion Revolution movement comes together to honor those who tragically lost their lives and to encourage millions of people to ask one question: #WhoMadeMyClothes?

2017 is the third annual Fashion Revolution event in the Twin Cities. They are calling all artists, designers, academics, writers, makers, business leaders, retailers, students and fashion lovers to join more than 92 countries in the worldwide movement to demand accountability in the clothing industry.

As voices for positive change within the fashion industry, they need your help to make this Fashion Revolution Week the biggest event yet.
