Our team works tirelessly to advocate for tougher legislation, legally binding agreements and policy transformation to hold the fashion industry accountable. For example, our work campaigning for a renewed International Accord on health and safety was successful in encouraging brands to keep their garment workers safe in Bangladesh and beyond. We have also been a crucial part of the development of the EU strategy for sustainable textiles, and our new European Citizens Initiative on due diligence for living wages in the fashion supply chain has the potential to bring living wages to millions of garment workers.
The Fashion Transparency Index has once more incentivised the world’s biggest and most influential fashion brands and retailers towards greater transparency, which we believe is fundamental to building a better fashion system. We have also championed the next generation of sustainable fashion designers through our showcasing and mentoring initiative Fashion Open Studio, putting dozens of game-changing international creatives in front of top fashion industry audiences. Our Small But Perfectly Formed programme is also supporting SMEs in Europe to accelerate circular fashion solutions.
Throughout the year, we create interactive resources, practical guides and innovative events to mobilise citizens to think differently about how we buy, care for and dispose of our clothes. Over 860,000 Fashion Revolutionaries follow our vibrant digital platforms, and during Fashion Revolution week alone, we reached 5.8million people on social media and nearly 5million through the press. We’ve also had over 35,600 people take part in our free online course, Fashion and the Sustainable Development Goals, equipping them with the tools to take action on fashion’s impact.
Fashion Revolution is the world’s largest fashion activism movement, campaigning for a fashion industry that values people and the planet over profit and growth. We are a truly people-powered movement, working together in communities around the world to create positive and lasting change.
The issues in the fashion industry never fall on any single person, brand, or company. We focus on using our collective voices to transform the entire system. We do this through: research, education, collaboration, mobilisation and advocacy.
With significant structural change, the fashion industry can lift millions of people out of poverty and provide them with decent and dignified livelihoods. It can conserve and restore our living planet. It can bring people together and be a great source of joy, creativity and expression for individuals and communities.
Fashion Revolution is working to secure radical change in the way that our clothing is produced, sourced and consumed. We are pushing for greater transparency in the fashion supply chain through policy work, investigative research, innovative events, social media campaigns and inspiring informative content.
