About the organisers
Fashion Revolution Greece
Fashion Revolution rose through the ruins of the Rana Plaza clothing factory in Bangladesh on April 24th, 2013. One day after the appearance of cracks at the first floors of the premises, the building complex collapsed causing the death of 1,134 and the injury of 2,500 people.
On April 24, 2014 -on the first anniversary of the Rana Plaza calamity- a global revolution began, so as to raise consumer awareness and in order to drastically change the way fashion is produced and consumed. Hence, a simple question was posed: "Who made my clothes"?
Today, Fashion Revolution is a global movement active in 95 countries having the support and participation of designers, brands, academics, writers, entrepreneurs and politicians.
