Fashion Revolution: Who Made My Clothes?

Today is Fashion Revolution Day. This day marks the second anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, which killed over eleven hundred people and injured thousands more.

I’m joining others as we ask, “Who made my clothes?” Check out Instagram hashtags for #fashrev, #whomademyclothes, #fashionrevolutionday, and #whomadeyourclothes for lots of inspiring photos. You might see photos of people wearing their clothes inside out to show the labels–transparency in fashion!

who made my clothes?

I know who made my clothes!

Lois Eastlund label

Lois Eastlund made my dress. It looks fantastic (even inside out) because it’s handmade and she paid a lot of attention to detail. She’s a NY-based fashion designer and one of the founders of La Fashionista Compassionista–an awesome (and free) online magazine that you should get your hands on!

Moses made my boots. They’re handmade in a factory in LA. The company, Nicora Johns, is helping to keep the US shoemaking industry…

    What a pretty dress! Well paired with those tights and boots. It’s good to be aware of where our clothes and consumer products come from and the conditions under which they’re made.

      Thank you! Jean is my daughter and my fashion inspiration, the reason i started this blog. I wish I had bought one of Lois’s dresses, they are all so unique and well-made from my favourite decade – the 60s mod style!

      Thank you for caring! We can make a difference.

      ❤ carmen

    Thank you Jean, thank you Carmen…….perhaps labels should declare not just the country but the country AND factory of origin…..getting harder and harder to buy Canadian and/or USA made.

      Thank you so much Dawn Lucy! We, who love fashion, can really make a difference! I admit, I have bought many things because they cost less, but they come at a great cost for those who died and those who continue to work in poor working conditions will little pay. Plus, we need to support our own countries, USA and Canada!

      Thank you for caring!
