Fashion Revolution Day is an annual, global campaign on April 24, which honours the victims of the tragic Rana Plaza factory collapse of April 24, 2013 in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Individuals and organizations from around the world take part in this special day in a variety of ways and ask fast fashion companies and manufacturers: #whomademyclothes?

The talented organizers of Fashion Revolution Day always give participants bright and beautiful imagery, messaging and key facts to use to promote the campaign and its efforts to raise public awareness of unethical labour practices in the garment industry.

The end goal of this day is to make sure that garment factory tragedies, such as the Rana Plaza collapse, which killed more nearly 1,200 people, never happen again. Fashion Revolution Day is a moment in time when anyone can add their voice to the growing crowd of people who refuse to accept the exploitation of people and planet.

To take part in this year’s activities, I’m hosting a Twitter chat via @shop_either_or with Angela Wallace of @Sasstainable. On Sunday, April 24 at 2 p.m. EST, I invite you to join us on Twitter while we #ChatSasstainable fashion for an hour. We’ll be asking questions, engaging with followers, and hope to get a great conversation going with you about Fashion Revolution Day and how we can all do our bit to change the face of fashion.
