Fashion Open Studio, Fashion Revolution’s showcasing initiative, launched in 2017, is a week of presentations, talks, and workshops with emerging designers, established trailblazers and major players, to celebrate the people and processes behind the process of making our clothes. When designers open up their studios to the public it creates a space for honest conversation, transparency and accountability. It also gives designers an opportunity to share their innovative and creative solutions to some of the urgent social and environmental challenges facing the industry today.
Usually made of a schedule of physical events during Fashion Revolution Week 20th - 26th April, this year, in light of the global change of circumstances, it has been taken online. We hope in doing so that more people can watch, listen, learn and enjoy.
Starting life in 2013 after the Rana Plaza Factory Collapse, Fashion Revolution is a global non-profit organisation that campaigns for a clean, safe, fair, transparent and accountable fashion industry. This is done through research, education, collaboration, mobilisation and advocacy.
Fashion Revolution believes in a global fashion industry that conserves and restores the environment and values people over growth and profit. Read the Manifesto on the Fashion Revolution website.
