What is Fashion Revolution?
Fashion Revolution is a worldwide movement demanding the change of the fashion industry. We want a world where fashion doesn’t exploit people and doesn’t destroy the environment.
We are Fashion Revolution. We are designers, producers, makers, workers and consumers. We are academics, writers, business leaders, brands, retailers, trade unions and policymakers. We are the industry and the public. We are world citizens. We are a movement and a community. We are you.
We love fashion. But we don’t want our clothes to exploit people or destroy our planet. We demand radical, revolutionary change. Our 10 point Manifesto shows what the fashion industry could and should become.
