Fashion Revolution Week: we can be the change

Today, I want to chat with you about something near and dear to my heart: Fashion Revolution Week. But before we dive in, let’s talk fast fashion.

Breaking with Fast Fashion

Fast fashion – we’ve all indulged in it at some point, right? Those cheap clothes that seem like a steal until you realise the true cost behind them. For me, the turning point came when I stumbled upon the eye-opening documentary “The True Cost.” It was a wake-up call, shedding light on the dark side of the fashion industry – from exploitative labor practices to environmental degradation.

That documentary was my trigger for change. And thus began my journey into the world of slow fashion. It wasn’t an overnight transformation; rather, it was a gradual shift towards more sustainable and ethical choices. I started asking questions about where my clothes came from and who made them. The more I learned, the more determined I became to break free from the cycle of fast fashion.

Join Fashion Revolution Week

Fashion Revolution Week is a great starting point for your journey towards slow fashion. This annual event commemorates the Rana Plaza tragedy and serves as a rallying cry for transparency and accountability in the industry. It’s a time to reflect on the impact of our fashion choices and to demand better from brands.

So, how can you join the movement? It’s simpler than you think. Start by asking brands the important question: #whomademyclothes? Share your posts on social media or write emails to your favourite brands – most important: every action counts. Let’s use our voices to hold brands accountable and push for a more ethical and sustainable fashion industry.
