Fashion Revolution Week 2024 Roundup

By Fashion Revolution

2 months ago

2024 was possibly our biggest and best Fashion Revolution Week yet, as we celebrated our 10th anniversary as the world’s largest fashion activism movement. Marking ten years of activism with ten days of action, we launched a new storytelling campaign and held a series of interactive skills workshops, before harnessing the power of the collective with a global day of action. 

Fashion Revolution Week is the time when we come together as a global community to collectively reimagine the fashion industry. It centres around the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed around 1,138 people and injured many more on 24 April 2013. 11 years on, we were reminded of why Fashion Revolution first formed and why we can’t stop working to transform the fashion system over a decade later.


How to be a Fashion Revolutionary

This year’s theme invited our global community to share a decade of learnings on what it means to be a part of the revolution. We heard from the community builders, creative thinkers and organisers whose stories inspired the next generation of Fashion Revolutionaries, and explored fashion’s role in driving social and environmental justice. 

At Fashion Revolution, we believe that everyone has a part to play in building a fashion industry that puts people and planet first, but getting started can seem daunting. Fashion Revolution Week 2024 redefined what fashion activism looks like by amplifying diverse voices within our community, sharing learnings from our past campaigns, and championing the power of craftivism. 




In celebration of our 10th anniversary as a people-powered movement, we created a new storytelling campaign to share what it means to be a Fashion Revolutionary and celebrate a decade of impact. #WeAreFashionRevolution was designed to introduce you to the people behind our movement and raise awareness around the issues in the fashion industry we are collectively fighting against.

As a global organisation, we believe in platforming diverse voices to challenge misconceptions and collectively advocate for a more sustainable and ethical fashion future. Throughout Fashion Revolution Week our incredible Global Network and our online community shared their lived experiences, from the struggles faced to the victories made, and all the hard work in between, to empower new and old Revolutionaries around the globe.

We’d like to say thank you to everyone who has shared their story with us. Whether you’re just starting out or have been with us since the beginning, by sharing your journey to become a Fashion Revolutionary, you have proven that everyone has a role in our movement and we each have the power as global citizens to transform the fashion system.

How to be a Fashion Revolutionary Workshop Series

We turned a decade of learnings, successes and campaigns into a free global workshop series, designed and led by fellow Fashion Revolutionaries. This series was designed to equip our community with everything they need to take action, including valuable communication, community building, advocacy and education skills. 

Thank you to everyone who joined one (or a number!) of our workshops during Fashion Revolution Week. Whether you attended online or in-person, we hope you left feeling empowered to take action and develop your new skills in fashion activism. 

Don’t worry if you missed our live sessions, as the recordings will soon be available to watch on the Fashion Revolution Youtube Channel. Remember, it’s never too late to become a Fashion Revolutionary!

Mend In Public Day

On Saturday 20th April, Fashion Revolutionaries new and old joined us on the streets for our first global Mend In Public Day. The idea was simple: get out into your local community and stitch in protest against disposable fashion. Amidst busy Saturday shoppers, we repaired our torn pockets and broken seams and sparked conversations on making Loved Clothes Last.

When we started thinking about our plans for Fashion Revolution Week 2024, we talked about the barriers that people face when engaging in fashion activism. Too often, misconceptions around what activism looks like discourages people from taking action. We believe that our fashion activism can be quiet and gentle and still be radical. When the fashion industry is constantly trying to sell us more and more, extending the life of clothes and being creative with what we have is countercultural.

Thank you to everyone who joined us to mend the fashion system by repairing our clothes, championing artisans, sharing skills and passing down knowledge. It was a beautiful day of collective action.
