WE ARE FASHION REVOLUTION CYPRUS!
Fashion Revolution Week on April 23th-29th encourages fashionistas and consumers to ask Who made my clothes?
Fashion Revolution is the organization putting a spotlight on the ethics of the retail industry. If you need a refresher of the incident, the Rana Plaza in 2013 in Dhaka, Bangladesh, resulted in the death of 1138 innocent workers. Fashion Revolution is an alliance of designers, retailers, writers, academics, business leaders, parliamentarians and celebrities pushing for integrity in the retail industry.
Fashion Revolution aims to use the power of the fashion industry and social media to reconnect the consumer with the producers of their clothes. It encourages people to learn about the origins of their clothes and to engage with the labels that they buy. The retailer and consumers both share responsibility because where market decides to spend money is the key to discouraging global malpractice.
Fashion Revolution Cyprus aim to make consumers aware of the manufacturing process, to promote slow fashion movement and inspire consumers to shop consciously and buy something unique. Each year we hold Fashion Revolution Week as a light in to the dark corners of this fast fashion industry asking consumers to look a little deeper into Who made my clothes?
We decided to take the need for transparency one step further and figured out a way to help the Cypriots on this journey. Hopefully we want to inspire more people to do so. Fashion Revolution Colombia showed as the way and we recorded all sustainable fashion initiatives of Cyprus, which we came across so far. That is why we created SUSTAINABLE ROUTES CY.
We have compiled a list of second-hand and sustainable shops in Cyprus, visit our website to browse here.
Hopefully, this inspires you! If you are interested in Fashion Revolution Cyprus get in touch with us!

Fashion Revolution is only nine years old and already the world’s largest fashion activism movement.
We will continue to push for greater transparency through investigative research,
inspiring informative content and creative events, but we need your help.
