Meet Your Maker: The Latest Fashion Movement

Gemma Jade is a proud supporter FASHION REVOLUTION DAY. Join us in a movement that is redefining the spirit of Fashion and putting socially responsible manufacturing in the forefront of our decisions as consumers.

 

WE BELIEVE IN A FASHION INDUSTRY
THAT VALUES PEOPLE,THE
ENVIRONMENT, CREATIVITY AND
PROFIT IN EQUAL MEASURE.

OUR MISSION IS TO
BRING EVERYONE 
TOGETHER
TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

On 24th April each year, Fashion Revolution Day will bring everyone in the fashion value chain together and help to raise awareness of the true cost of fashion, show the world that change is possible, and celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future.

As a global movement uniting around an annual campaign,  we believe we will build considerable momentum and achieve incredible impact together. We hope that Fashion Revolution will bring together organisations and people that, outside of Fashion Revolution Day, are not always connected.

8_FRD_actions_-01BE CURIOUS

The first Fashion Revolution Day is based around the theme ‘Who Made Your Clothes?’

We have lost the connection with the clothes that we wear, so we thought it was important to make this first day about transparency and reconnecting the relationships in the fashion value chain. What is the connection to someone else through your clothes? The farmers do not know where their cotton goes; the producers no longer make entire garments, they are just line workers; and the end consumer rarely knows where their clothes were made.

We need to become more curious about how our clothes are made and who made them.

8_FRD_actions_-02FIND OUT

Look at the labels on your clothes and see if you can find out who made your clothes. Get in contact with brands and ask them ‘Who Made Your Clothes‘.

  • Tweet the brand a picture of your garment and ask Who Made Your Clothes?
  • Contact the brand on Facebook and ask Who Made Your Clothes?
  • On Fashion Revolution Day 24 April, please Tweet: Today I’m wearing my (shirt/dress/T-shirt etc.) #insideout because I want to ask @ (brand/retailer) Who Made Your Clothes?
  • Make a video or send an email to the brand and ask them Who Made Your Clothes?

Together we can use the power of fashion to catalyse change and reconnect the broken links in the supply chain.

  • Wear your clothes inside-out to help start the beginning of an industry-wide transformation towards a more sustainable future. Ask ‘Who Made Your Clothes?
  • Show us your inside out clothes on Instagram by tagging it @Fash_Rev and #InsideOut
