Fashion Revolution Week

Sat 14 Apr 2018
Fashion Revolution Week

Fashion Revolution Week falls on the 24th of April each year. This year it will mark the 5th anniversary of the catastrophic Rana Plaza factory collapse, an event that exposed the world to the devastating conditions suffered by many garment workers.

Our founder, Brigid McLaughlin, remembers the mood following the tragic collapse. “It never should have happened”, and whilst it was devastating she knows the factory collapse made many clothing companies “sit up and take notice”. Brigid is encouraged by consumers choosing to shop more responsibly, adding that more and more people are appreciating the slow clothing philosophy which many brands are now adopting.

This question, “Who made my clothes?” is the recurring message during Fashion Revolution Week.  The shift for consumers to hold clothing brands accountable for their manufacturing methods is growing year by year. Transparency within fashion is vital in seeing real change throughout the industry and is also a key element in our brand Brigid McLaughlin.

Our event, “Open Studio: Who made your Clothes”, that will be held during Fashion Revolution Week, is being run to allow customers to see how our slow clothing philosophy is being translated into our development and manufacturing methods.  

We invite students, professionals and all interested to visit our studio to meet our talented team of makers. Those who attend will be offered an instore 25% discount on all our Australian Made clothing available on the day.  Most importantly we invite those who attend to celebrate the work of Fashion Revolution and initiate conversation with each other on of how individually and collectively we can play our part in making the fashion industry more sustainable   We hope to see you there!
