On 24 April, 2013 1,133 garment workers were killed and 2,500 injured when the Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh, marking the deadliest accident in the garment making history.

Fashion Revolution Day marks the year anniversary of the tragedy and the coming together of the global fashion industry to face the ongoing challenges of the supply chain and raise awareness for where clothing comes from.

“The idea for Fashion Revolution day came to me in the bath,” said founder of Fashion Revolution and ethical fashion specialist, Carry Somers. “I saw that the Rana Plaza disaster could act as a catalyst, with the heightened awareness around ethical fashion providing a window to bring about real change.”

“Fashion Revolution Day represents an exciting opportunity to reconnect fashion-lovers with the people who made their clothes.”

With the question 'Who Made Your Clothes?' Fashion Revolution Day asks consumers, designers and retailers alike to ask where there clothing is made, find out more and invites them to wear their clothes inside out, photograph themselves and share it with the hashtag #insideout on all social network platforms.

“With one simple gesture, #insideout, we want you to ask: 'Who Made Your Clothes?' this action will encourage people to imagine the 'thread' from the garment to the machinist that sewed it and all the way down to the farmer that grew the cotton it was made from,” said co-founder Orsole de Castro.
