Fashion Revolution Day takes place on the anniversary of the 2013 Rana Plaza tragedy in Bangladesh, to inspire people to understand where their garments are made by turning their clothes inside and showing their labels.
Held annually on the 24th of April as a metaphorical call to arms, with the aim of keeping the most vulnerable in the supply chain in the public eye. So turn your garments inside out, show your label and ask #whomademyclothes! #FashRev
