Dubai, UAE – Fashion Revolution UAE, a movement promoting a more sustainable and socially just fashion industry, is hosting their annual Fashion Revolution Week.
Taking place from Monday 18th to Sunday 24th of April, the campaign aims to bring awareness to and commemorate the Rana Plaza factory collapse anniversary. This year on a global level, Fashion Revolution wants to reimagine a fair and equitable fashion system for people and the planet.
The theme for Fashion Revolution Week 2022 is MONEY FASHION POWER. Built on the knowledge that the mainstream fashion industry relies upon the exploitation of labour and natural resources, prioritising growth and profit above everything else and leading individuals to overconsumption.
“As we enter our 9th year, we will go back to our core, exposing the profound inequities and social and environmental abuses in the fashion supply chains. From the uneven distribution of profits, to overproduced, easily discarded fashion, to the imbalances of power that negate inclusion. On the other hand, inspiring new designers, thinkers and professionals all over the world are challenging the system with solutions and alternative models.” – Orsola de Castro, Co-founder and Global Creative Director, Fashion Revolution
Fashion Revolution UAE will hold different events ranging from workshops, online panel discussions to masterclasses, as well as a sustainable fashion competition for new talents. It will encourage brands and consumers to adopt a more conscious lifestyle and participate in the growing sustainable fashion movement in the UAE.
