Fashion Revolution Week is an annual occurrence that takes place during the week of April 24th, marking the anniversary of the 2013 Rana Plaza garment factory collapse where 1138 lives were tragically lost. The ever-growing global movement demands greater transparency, sustainability and ethics from the fashion industry, and invites its supporters to ask brands #WhoMadeMyClothes in order to recognise and support the garment workers in the fashion supply chain.
On the 23rd of April, you’ll have the opportunity to head along to Adelaide’s sole Fashion Revolution Week event. Adelaide Fashion Revolution Night is hosted by Adelaide sustainable fashion label From Found, a not-for-profit enterprise that creates unique, high-quality garments without compromising ethics or the environment. Each of From Found’s one-off pieces are made right here in Adelaide by women from refugee / asylum seeker backgrounds using recovered and recycled fabrics.
The night itself will kick off with a screening of award-winning documentary RiverBlue. The documentary follows international river conservationist Mark Angelo and explores the high-pollution nature of the fashion industry, examining its ill-effects on nature and humanity as well as presenting possible solutions for a more sustainable future. After the screening, an ethical panel discussion will take place featuring local leaders in the industry.
