About this Event
Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability & ethics in the fashion industry. We want to unite the fashion industry and ignite a revolution to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased, so that what the world wears has been made in a safe, clean and fair way.
On the 6th anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1,138 people and injured many more in 2013, we encourage millions of people to ask brands #whomademyclothes and demand greater transparency in the fashion supply chain.The more people who ask #whomademyclothes, the more brands will listen.Use your voice and your power to change the fashion industry. Together we are stronger.
Event Details : Saturday, April 27th from 12 pm to 4 pm at 1410 Gratiot Ave, Detroit
