THE RIGHT PROJECT is proud to support Fashion Revolution Day.
Back for a second year, calling for greater transparency in the global fashion supply chain and celebrating those on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion. Celebrity supporters and fashion lovers in 69 countries around the world are being asked to show their support with a ‘label selfie’ to ask brands #whomademyclothes across social media on Friday 24 April.
Following the viral success of the inaugural Fashion Revolution Day last year, model Lily Cole, athlete Louis Smith, blogger Susie Lau , Chef and writer Melissa Hemsley and Eco Age Founder Livia Firth, are just some of the names expected take part.
On 24 April we are asking people to get involved:
This year, supporters in 69 countries around the world will challenge global fashion brands to demonstrate commitment to transparency across the length of the value chain, from farmers to factory workers, brands to buyers and consumers. To mark the day, and connect supporters with garment producers all over the world, there will be a series of events and global ‘social media takeovers’ hosted at @Fash_Rev. For more information on local events, visit http://fashionrevolution.org/events/
The Fashion Revolution goes on, beyond 24 April. Fashion Revolution Advisory Board Members, Livia Firth and Lucy Siegle, are the executive producers of a new documentary film, The True Cost. Funded by the public on crowdsourcing website Kickstarter, the film asks us to consider who really pays the price for our clothing. The film premieres in London on Fashion Revolution Day, in partnership with Business of Fashion, and will be released worldwide on 29 May 2015.

High street fast fashion shopping 'hauls' are a YouTube phenomenon. But some voguish vloggers with a conscience are finding alternative ways to get their fashion fix for Fashion Revolution Day and asking: who made your clothes?
