The best ethical fashion events happening in London for Fashion Revolution Week 2019

The best ethical fashion events happening in London for Fashion Revolution Week 2019

Fashion Revolution Week is one of the biggest campaigns of the year for the ethical and sustainable community.

Marking the collapse of the Rana Plaza in Bangladesh, which killed 1,138 and injured around 2,500 people – mostly garment workers – this is a global movement calling for greater transparency and better ethical and sustainable conditions in fashion supply chains.

Consumers will be asking brands #WhoMadeMyClothes, and there will be events online and around the world.

To help you plan your Fashion Revolution schedule, we’ve created a round up of the best ethical fashion events in London and online for Fashion Revolution 2019!
