WHAT’S FASHION REVOLUTION?
Fashion Revolution Week occurs every year in remembrance of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh. The building housed 5 garment factories, all manufacturing clothing for global brands. On April 24, 2013, due to gross negligence of safe working conditions, the building collapsed, killing 1,138 people and injuring 2,500. Most of the victims were young women.
