26 April 2019 Text Sophie Benson
Marking six years since the Rana Plaza factory collapsed in Bangladesh, taking the lives of 1,138 garment workers, Fashion Revolution Week is underway again. With the intention of making industry a better place for all, the movement is slowly changing the face of fashion – holding brands accountable for ensuring their supply chains are safe, ethical, and sustainable, and encouraging consumers to make conscious decisions when it comes to the clothes they choose to buy.
As well as releasing its annual Transparency Index, each year, Fashion Revolution partner with a multitude of labels and designers to open up conversations surrounding industry issues. In 2019, there are more than ever before – and everyone is invited. Here are some of the events happening this weekend that are not to be missed.
50M x FASHION REVOLUTION
As part of a collaboration with Fashion Open Studio, experimental concept store 50m has partnered with the British Council and Fashion Revolution to host a week-long series of events, panels, and talks. LVHM semi-finalist Duran Lantink is setting up a pop-up and holding workshops from the April 25 – May 2, asking people to bring in their old designer clothes to be given a new lease of life, under the apt title ‘Deconstruction and Reassembling’. Elsewhere, H&M Design Award winner and Westminster grad Priya Ahluwalia will be in conversation with Tamsin Blanchard on April 26, while anonymous collective CONGREGATION is hosting a workshop on 27 April, offering attendees a look into their disruptive and innovative design process.
