About Fashion Revolution Week

Spearheaded by Fashion Revolution, this is a week of campaigns and action to demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain. It takes place during the week of 24 April, the date of the Rana Plaza building collapse, in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Rana Plaza housed a number of garment factories, and when the building collapsed on 24 April 2013, 1,138 people were killed and many more were injured.

The tragedy highlighted the dreadful conditions that many people in the garment industry were working in. Join us to view this important documentary and learn more about the impact the fast fashion industry has on people and the planet.
