When is Fashion Revolution Week celebrated?
Fashion Revolution Week 2016 is being celebrated from April 18th to April 24th. April 24th 2016 is Fashion Revolution Day.
What is Fashion Revolution Day?
Great question ;)
Fashion Revolution day is celebrated in commemoration of the "Rana Plaza incident" when a garment factory in Bangladesh collapsed on April 24 2013 killing 1130 people.
Fashion Revolution Day is celebrated on 24th April each year in partnership with Fashion Revolution Organization with the purpose of "bringing everyone in the fashion value chain together and help raise awareness of the true cost of fashion, show the world that change is possible, and celebrate all those involved in creating a more sustainable future."
How is Bano eeMee involved?
Bano eeMee prides itself in using fashion to make a difference by creating fair work opportunities in South Asia through the creation of our designs. All Bano eeMee products are crafted with natural, humanely sourced leather with a focus on "respecting Earth and ALL people". We spend at least 4 months each year with the artisans that work on our designs because they are an integral part of our story and we want to share our growth and success with them and ensure that they are fairly treated and compensated.
