What is the “day of the fashion revolution”
On April 24, 2013, collapsed textile factory complex “Rana Plaza” in Bangladesh. In the disaster, more than 1100 workers and workers have been killed, making clothes for popular fashion brands that we all know and sell. The disaster aroused strong international criticism of the terms of employment and production in the fashion world and raised awareness of the transition to a more fair industry.
Starting in 2014, Fashion Revolution Day is commemorated worldwide on April 24 to commemorate the disaster. On this day we read and call to make the fashion industry more just, more just and more just for man and the environment.
This year, we will also mark the “Fashion Revolution Day” in Tel Aviv, on the evening we will meet the women behind our industry.
