If you wear clothes, you are, by default, #complicit. It’s time to ask: #whomademyclothes
Collapse of Rana Plaza, 4/24/2013. Watch @truecostmovie, @riverbluethemovie to learn more about this tragedy and the effects of #fastfashion, the world’s second largest polluter after #bigoil. Pollution, slavery, exploitation of women and children, lack of transparency, lack of necessary labor laws, lack of platforms, resources for those brave enough to complain. Very little public pressure, very little pressure on companies to evolve. #bigfashion needs to #changenow
This is a shocking image, thank you @mariekeeyskoot for sharing.
Whilst people were searching for bodies, we heard that people were searching for garment labels too...
@safia_minney and @franklinonfashion visited Bangladesh a year after this tragedy happened, watch the video on our twitter feed. (Will share here later today)
FASHION REVOLUTION WEEK * Never again * 24/04/2013 // garment factory Rana Plaza collapses * 1.138 people die // over 2.500 injured // for our clothes * since: safety in Bangladesh has improved, wages and working hours haven't * this heartbreaking, haunting picture was made by Bangladeshi photographer and activist Taslima Akhter * the day after, she spent all day at the site, while the hurt and deceased workers were carried away * she stumbled across this couple in the rubble, holding each other in a final embrace * despite trying to find out, she still doesn't know who they are * in remembrance, and for all who work so, so hard to make our outfits, ask: WHO MADE MY CLOTHES?
