Fashion Revolution Foundation celebrate fashion as a positive influence while also scrutinising industry practices and raising awareness of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues. They aim to show that change is possible and encourage those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion. They believe in a fashion industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. Their aim is to unite people and organisations to work together towards radically changing the way our clothes are sourced, produced and consumed, so that our clothing is made in a safe, clean and fair way. Ultimately, they believe that collaborating across the whole value chain — from farmer to consumer — is the only way to transform the industry.
Every year they hold a Fashion Revolution Week with a #whomademyclothes campaign, which falls on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1138 people and injured many more on 24th April 2013. That is the day Fashion Revolution was born. During this week, brands and producers are encouraged to respond with the hashtag and to demonstrate transparency in their supply chain. The Fashion Revolution Foundation is the charitable arm of Fashion Revolution in the UK.
The Foundation is a registered charity in England & Wales (Number 1173421), and a company limited by guarantee (Number 10494997) that funds Fashion Revolution’s education, research and awareness-raising activities, as well as their public events. MenswearStyle donates clothing from its office sample cupboard each season to Fashion Revolution Foundation via Thrift+ which is a resale website which has a vision to help millions of individuals turn their unwanted belongings into billions of pounds of funding for worthwhile causes all over the world.
