What is Fashion Revolution?

Fashion Revolution is an organization built to raise awareness about the true cost of fashion and celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future. Fashion Revolution Week, an annual global campaign to inspire citizens to call for greater transparency in the fashion industry, is being held this year from April 24th to April 30th. We want to ask as many people as possible, “WHO MADE MY CLOTHES?”

 

 

 

What is our event?

We are kicking off Fashion Revolution Week with a Stanford event to bring together students, fashion industry professionals, and others interested in a more sustainable and ethical future for fashion. Our goals are to:

  1. Educate and raise awareness about aspects of the fashion industry that need improvement in a fun and engaging way. This event can be shared widely on social media using photos and articles demanding transparency in the industry. #whomademyclothes

  2. Foster discussion and solicit ideas for solutions from Stanford students and other interested community members. We want you to have a voice!

  3. Understand the needs and concerns of fashion industry professionals to cultivate positive change. This event will have a private, invite-only portion for professionals to share their perspectives and collaborate on cooperative solutions that are currently lacking in apparel supply chains.

 

What we need from you:

We are looking for excited students ready to get their hands dirty with us for the next two weeks. This will be a fun, collaborative process, and you will have lots of help along the way! We are looking for:

 
  • 4 Project Coordinators: Create activities and/or displays of your choice to be shown at our event! You will lead a small team of other students and work with our Main Organizer to make them come to life!
