Fashion's Victim - Part II
Last week was Fashion Revolution Week and consumers were encouraged to ask fashion brands "Who made my clothes?". The week marks the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse where 1,138 garment workers were killed and about 2,500 injured on April 24th, 2013 - all due to unsafe working conditions.
The more informed we are about the working conditions of the people behind the clothes we buy, the better and more selective our fashion purchases will be. We as consumers hold an immense amount of power. By slowing down consumption and asking brands for transparency in their supply chain, we can begin to elicit much needed change for garment workers worldwide.
Let's join the movement towards a more ethical and sustainable fashion industry. Choose quality over quantity; shop local, ethical and sustainable brands; support slow fashion and be curious.
Fashion should look and feel good. And who doesn't love a more curated closet!
