It’s that time of year again – time to ask the question “Who made our clothes?” and to advocate against human rights violations in the supply chain of the fashion brands we choose to wear.
It’s been a strange month, to say the least, and while we may have been distracted by COVID-19 let’s shift our attention, for a moment, to an issue that existed long before the pandemic began – fast fashion.Global fashion consumption continues to gain speed at unsustainable levels and relies on a culture of disposability - Fashion Revolution Click To Tweet
Perhaps now is as good a time as ever to reflect on what our levels of overconsumption are doing to the planet and its people. Perhaps now, in a period of intense introspection, can we look at how connected we are to one another and how our actions and choices can influence those across the globe. While we pause for a moment, may we gain a new perspective on our choices as consumers and take a deeper look into a deceiving industry that has, for many years, been causing extensive damage to the planet and perpetuating modern slavery.
This post is a guest collaboration between myself and Margarida Vasconcelos, fellow activist, blogger and founder of the renowned conscious lifestyle blog Daisy & Thyme. It contains facts and figures brought to you by Fashion Revolution, Oxfam and other reliable sources. This blog post does not contain affiliate links.
A history of the Fashion Revolution
On the 24th of April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed killing more than 1,100 people and injuring 2,500. These victims were making clothes for some of the biggest global fashion brands at the time. This disaster was the catalyst that revealed some of the many dark secrets of the fashion supply chain.
In the years that followed, more and more individuals were exposed to the reality that the fashion industry was, and in many ways still is, plagued by exploitation and injustice.
In 2017 research conducted by Deloitte Access Economics for Oxfam revealed that in the average supply chain of Australian garment retailers, just 4% of the price of a piece of clothing is estimated to make it back to the pockets of workers. That is just 40 cents from a $10 T-shirt. In 2019, Oxfam also revealed that nine out of ten garment workers interviewed in Bangladesh cannot afford enough food for themselves and their families, forcing them to regularly skip meals and eat inadequately, or go into debt. Similar findings have been reported in other countries such as Nepal, Vietnam and Cambodia where cheap labour is often sourced.In the average supply chain of Australian garment retailers, just 4% of the price of a piece of clothing is estimated to make it back to the pockets of workers Click To Tweet
Despite statistics like these making the news headlines, the consumption of fast fashion continued to rise. In 2018, Black Friday generated $6.2bn in online sales in the US alone – a growth of 23.6% from the previous year. Fashion became disposable – the average person bought 60% more clothing and kept it for about half as long as they did 15 years ago.
But as the sales increased, so did Fashion Revolution’s campaigning…
The positive impact of the Fashion Revolution so far
Before you get too disheartened, know that the Fashion Revolution and ‘Fashion Revolutionaries’ have gained some serious ground over the years. Four years ago the Fashion Transparency Index was created to review some of the world’s largest fashion brands and retailers and rank them according to how much they disclose about their social and environmental policies, practices and impacts.
Of the brands reviewed since 2017, their scores have increased by almost 9%. This progress suggests that inclusion in the Index has motivated many major brands to become more transparent in their supply chains. In 2019 the #whomademyclothes hashtag reached 289 million people on Instagram and encouraged brands and producers to respond in support of greater industry transparency.
Our voices are being heard, and it is only a matter of time before brands are forced to disclose full transparency until they lose complete credibility.
“Consumers are shopping differently, paying differently and their values are continuing to shift as sustainability and ethical retailing have taken centre stage – ” KPMG, Australian Retail Outlook 2020
The Fashion Revolution in 2020
This year, in the midst of COVID-19, Fashion Revolution are pivoting their activism into the online space through a series of online events, campaigns and the continuation of social media noise and education. Let’s use our voice and power to make positive change. Together we can transform the fashion industry into a force for good.Click To Tweet

COVID-19 and the fashion industry
COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the fashion industry. Bloomberg reports that about 1,089 garment factories in Bangladesh have had orders cancelled worth roughly $1.5 billion due to the coronavirus outbreak, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
You can support the people who make our clothes during this unprecedented global health and economic crisis by taking the following actions:
- Send an email to fashion brands and demand that they honour the orders they have already placed with their suppliers and #payup so that the workers making their products are supported and paid properly during the COVID-19 crisis. You can use the Fashion Revolution’s template to contact brands by email or via social media: https://www.fashionrevolution.org/the-impact-of-covid-19-on-the-people-who-make-our-clothes/
- Donate to non-profit organisations that are providing support to garment makers that have lost their jobs, namely AWAJ Foundation, The Garment Worker Centre, GoodWeave International, The World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO), CARE.
- Find more information and daily updates about the impact of COVID-19 on supply chain workers, how brands and retailers are responding to questions about their handling of the crisis and new fundraising appeals to help support workers here: https://www.fashionrevolution.org/the-impact-of-covid-19-on-the-people-who-make-our-clothes/
- Join @remakeourworld #PayUp and share a picture asking brands to #PayUp
- Contact the top UK fashion brands and ask them to confirm if they are honouring their contracts and working with factories to make sure the people who make our clothes continue to be paid: https://action.traidcraft.org.uk/fast-fashion-crisis-take-action
