Fashion Revolution coming to Oxford

Please share both the invitations with your friends, family, colleagues and media.

On 24 April 2013, 1,134 people were killed and over 2,500 were injured when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. We believe that’s too many people to lose on one day.  That’s when Fashion Revolution was born.  On 18-24 April, Fashion Revolution Week will bring people from all over the world together to use the power of fashion to change the story for the people who make the world’s clothes and accessories.  

Please come and join the revolution in Oxford.  We are asking you to Be curious. Find out who made your clothes. Who grew the cotton, spun the threads, dyed the fabric and who sewed them together?

TUESDAY 19TH APRIL.  Photo call with the Lord Mayor of Oxford, 6.30pm – 7pm at The Oxford Town Hall
We will join the Lord Mayor of Oxford go #insideout to show that Oxford is part of the Fashion Revolution.  We will all be wearing an item of clothing #insideout  - we'll be asking the questions #who made my clothes?

SUNDAY 24TH APRIL.  Fashion Revolution Day, showing of the documentary 'The True Cost' / 6.30pm – 8.30pm, Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford.  Free event.
Showing of documentary ‘The True Cost’ followed by a panel discussion.

We believe that fashion can be made in a safe, clean and beautiful way, where creativity, quality, environment and people are valued equally.

  • Oh: Wouldn't tracking the sourcing of a garment be the perfect block chain application?

    • Now you're talking Frido, could you give us a better idea of what that would mean? Could we hook that on to something we're already working on (like for instance Thela)? How would that fit with the overall architecture Francesco's about to release?

    • I think the basic idea would be: with the bar code (RFID of the tag?) of your t-shirt, you can look up the supply chain up to where the wool was sourced. Just clean and simple - stating provenance. To create accountability - similar to what the EU seems to introduce after the horse meat scandals for food?

  • The awareness raising campaign resonated well with the Lord Mayor of Oxford - see photo. Important points I have taken from this and from the podium discussion (following the excellent film) include: There is a significant lack of best practice examples and case studies that can be promoted (around ethical sourcing and around creating a more sustainable, circular economy). Moreover, 'quality' and 'ethical' are the opposites of 'fast' and 'cheap'. Only a question of time, till the big brands discover 'ethical' as the competitive advantage (it makes the consumers feel good)?
