Fashion Revolution is an international initiative that was created in London in response to the collapse of the Bangladeshi Rana Plaza clothing factory on April 24, 2013. 1,130 people died and more than 2,500 were injured in the rubble. The main goal of Fashion Revolution is to raise awareness in society about how the fashion industry works and what negative effects its operation will bring.
