It’s Fashion Revolution week commemorating the 8th anniversary of the 2013 Rana Plaza collapse. Rana Plaza was a building in Bangladesh which housed a number of garment factories, employing around 5,000 people. The people in this building were manufacturing clothing for many of the biggest global fashion brands. More than 1,100 people died in the collapse and another 2,500 were injured, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. The victims were mostly young women. This year, Fashion Revolution Week is focused on Rights, Relationships, and Revolution. We all have a role in the movement to change the fashion industry.
