Have you heard about Fashion Revolution Week?

From Monday the 18th of April to Sunday the 24th of April 2016, 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.

The event was born as a result of a terrible accident, when over a thousand people were killed, and more than two thousand injured when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Bangladesh in April 2013. It was a clothing factory.

So every year at the same time, Fashion Revolution Week brings 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.

The aim of the week is for fashion to become a force for good. It encourages the clothing industry to value people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. Mostly it is about transparency.

And it starts with one simple question:

Who made my clothes?

Last year, in over 70 countries around the world, tens of thousands of people took part in Fashion Revolution Day. We asked brands #whomademyclothes to show that we care and demand better for the people who make our clothes.

To participate in the week all you need to do is: show your clothes label, take a selfie and then post to social media and ask the brand #WhoMadeMyClothes

There will be three events held in Australia:

29 April 2016 - Who Made My Clothes Q&A Discussion, Adelaide Library, Adelaide.
