Fashion Revolution Day – get on board!

On April 24 last year, over 1133 garment workers were killed in unsafe working conditions in a factory in Bangladesh.  All over the world, people suffer every day to bring us our fashion.  That’s not to say that fashion is bad.  Fashion inspires us, pushes the boundaries and tells a story about who you are.   It’s a powerful tool for self-expression.  And it can be a force for good.
