Fashion Revolution Day | April 24 | events in Asia and Europe


Fashion Revolution Day is launched worldwide on April 24th 2014, as a response to the Rana Plaza building collapse disaster in Bangladesh in 2013. You can join a wide range of participatory design, photography, fashion and craft events in Asia and Europe.

Led by a board of industry leaders, campaigners, press and academics from within the sector and beyond, Fashion Revolution Day aims to become the catalyst that brings together those who want to see change within the industry. On 24th April each year, Fashion Revolution Day will bring everyone in the fashion value chain together and help to 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 Thursday 24 April 2014, the first Fashion Revolution Day asks people to wear their clothes inside out. Change the way you look at the clothes you wear. Be curious.
