Fashion Revolution Day 24th April 2015 is an international day and opportunity to celebrate fashion as a positive influence, raise awareness of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues, show that change is possible and celebrate those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion. It will rally the high street, the high end, the innovators, the media, the public, the activists, the makers, the wearers – and everyone in between.
The global fashion industry is coming together to celebrate the second year of Fashion Revolution Day – on the 24th April 2015. This is when a series of international events and initiatives will highlight the fashion industry’s urgent concerns and engage local communities to demand greater transparency throughout.
