Fashion Revolution Day 2015, #WhoMadeMyClothes?

24 Apr 2015

On 24th April each year, Fashion Revolution Day will bring everyone in the fashion value chain together to help raise awareness of the true cost of fashion, show the world that change is possible, and celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future.

On 24 April 2013, 1133 people died in the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Fashion Revolution sees the Rana Plaza disaster as a metaphorical call to arms. 
Do you know Who Made Your Clothes? I bet you don't. I bet the most of the brands who make your clothes don't either unless they're an ethical brand like People Tree who have been working with artisan traders for over 20 years.

People Tree, led by its founder and CEO, Safia Minney MBE, make regular trips with the design team to meet their producers, whether design and technical support or to measure the social impact. These trips are an important part of People Tree’s DNA and ensure that best practice is maintained throughout the supply chain. 

We need more brands to start making more ethical decisions for the environment and it's workers in order to create a more sustainable future and avoid anything like the Rana Plaza factory collapse ever again. You can join in with Fashion Revolution Day today...

Join In

On 24th April, join the Fashion Revolution. Take a selfie showing your label. You could turn your clothes inside out to make more of a statement.
Tag the brand and ask #whomademyclothes?
Keep tagging the brand until you get an answer and make a stand!

People Tree know who made my clothes...


Knowing who made my clothes and knowing that they're being treated fairly and getting a decent wage makes me happier when buying and wearing them!

Together we will use the power of fashion to inspire change and reconnect the broken links in the supply chain. 

To save 10% on People Tree, use the code "AMBER10" and start making a change today.

  3. Hey Amber,

    That dress looks so lovely on you - I recently posted about the Fashion Revolution Day too, and featured Nomads Clothing as they not only make fairtrade and organic clothing but they make sure they help the communities working for them (http://www.curiouslyconscious.com/2015/04/nomads-clothing-fair-trade-fashion-review.html ) It's something I'd love to see done by larger fashion brands!

  4. I love People Tree! You look absolutely beautiful in this dress, and I have been lusting after that clutch bag for ages. I try to buy Fair Trade or secondhand most of the time.xx

  5. I'd like to become more aware of where my clothes are from, I try not to shop at the cheaper stores on a regular basis, I know everyone love Primark but I worry about the ethics. The problem with being a larger size is often the "Greener" brands are not catering for me. There is a long way to go but campaigns like this one will get people thinking :D

  6. Ooh I'll make sure to read your post in a minute! I think it's amazing that they help the communities working for them too. People Tree have a lot of artisan workers in Nepal who were fortunate enough not to have been affected by the recent earthquake but they are now donating 10% to help those in need which I think it amazing!
