We are Fashion Revolution. We are designers, academics, writers, business leaders, policymakers, brands, retailers, marketers, producers, makers, workers, trade unions and fashion lovers. We are the industry and we are the public. We are world citizens. We are you.

Rights, Relationships And Revolution Human rights and the rights of nature are interconnected and interdependent, yet the fashion industry takes too much from nature, and exploits its people. We cannot continue to extract dwindling resources from an already stressed natural world, pollute our land and our oceans, fall far short of climate change targets and dump our waste on the shoulders of countries we have culturally depleted. Nor can we continue to allow big business to profit whilst supply chain workers struggle to live in dignity. At Fashion Revolution, we believe we need a radical shift in our relationships – with each other, with our clothes, within fashion supply chains and with the natural world. We need this revolution for our own prosperity and wellbeing, and for the health of our earth and our oceans. Now is the time for a fashion revolution. This Fashion Revolution Week, we are bringing people together from across our community, amplifying unheard and marginalised voices, and working together to explore interconnected solutions.

Action: Say it in your language! We are inviting all producers to translate “I Made Your Clothes� into your national languages, indigenous languages and local dialects, because we want to hear you in your own words. You can write, paint, sew or embroider a poster, or use the downloadable font on the website here, and then post a photograph of you and your fellow producers holding it on social media. Use the hashtag #IMadeYourClothes so we can find your posts, and create the hashtag in your own language.

An inside look at an all female weaving cooperative in Kenya Dorcas Ndinda Meet Dorcas Ndinda, aged 48, a part time farmer and green grocer, and the leader of her village weavers’ cooperative. When I am leading a project and it is flourishing and the lives of the members are positively impacted, I am happy. Weaving, as well, makes me happy, especially when I look back and see how much my family and I relied on the income from the sales of baskets that I wove.
