Fashion Revolution Week occurs every year on the anniversary of the tragic Rana Plaza factory collapse in 2013 that killed over 1,000 innocent workers. Run by Fashion Revolution, the purpose of this weekly campaign is to spur greater greater transparency between fashion brands and their consumers.
Notably, consumers are demanding to know how their clothes are made and what they are made with. The overriding goal is to make fashion safer, cleaner and fairer for everyone involved.
The week centres around consumers asking brands one burning question:
- who made my clothes?

Why Fashion Revolution Week is Important
Fashion Revolution Week is an amazing period where millions of consumers ask brands on social #whomademyclothes.
If just one person asks, then big brands will likely ignore it; but if we can mobilise thousands of people to ask one brand who made their clothes, the greater the chance they will show some sort of transparency.
And transparency promotes accountability.
As consumers, if we don’t know who is making our clothes, we can’t hold brands accountable. Lots of Australian brands hide behind murky and multifaceted supply chains, so it’s hard for us to know who is actually committed to ethical clothing and who only cares about profits.
Australia may have stringent workplace laws, but just because the clothing is Australian made, does not automatically guarantee that the clothing is ethically made.
