Who made your clothes?

Today, the 24th of April 2014, marks the one year anniversary since the Rana Plaza disaster. Organized in it's honour is Fashion Revolution Day, taking the opportunity to make everyone aware of how our clothes are made and to question the brands we buy from. There are so many things I could say on the topic, like mention all the other disasters that don't get press coverage, preach about the good and evil in the fashion industry, or make you feel guilty about even walking past a Primark store and not throwing eggs at it. In the end I think I bring up the issue of ethical fashion often enough, so if you haven't seen it, here's my Ethical Directory. If you feel so inclined, give the Fashion Revolution page a look. Otherwise, if you're London based, you might consider joining me at an ethical catwalk and panel discussion next week in Hammersmith, details here.

Sorry for the brief post and the desk acting as my model today, I just got back to London and I'm studying hard for exams coming up in a couple of weeks. I thought of writing a piece about ethical fashion and whether or not it's only for the rich, but on second thought I might leave that bitter argument to the Guardian columnists.
