Save the Date: April 29, Fashion Revolution

Share this story:

Have you ever asked yourself #WhoMadeMyClothes? According to the Global Slavery Index 45,8 million people are enslaved today, many of them in the supply chains of the fashion industry. After the Rana Plaza complex in Bangladesh collapsed in 2013, killing and injuring thousands of workers, Fashion Revolution was born.

 

There are now over 80 countries worldwide taking part in Fashion Revolution. Every year on April 24, Fashion Revolution Day brings people together from all over the world to use the power of fashion to change the story for the people who make the world’s clothes. We believe transparency is the first step to transform the industry. And it starts with one simple question: Who made my clothes?

SAVE THE DATE

This year on April 29th you can celebrate Fashion Revolution at Rotondes with an Ethical Fashion Market, Knitting & Upcycling Workshops for adults & children, a Round Table on the Challenges of the Fashion Industry, a Film Screening on Fast Fashion and other activities.

We are partnering with non-profits and ethical fashion factors in Luxembourg to bring you a unique chic & conscious event. Together with CaritasImpashion, Risaikourou, Rotondes and What.Eve.Wears and with the support of a motivated team of volunteers we aim to raise awareness and shape the conscious consumers of tomorrow.

We invite you to discover a varied range of products curated with care and a focus to transparent production methods during the first ever Ethical Fashion Market in the city. Whether they are designed in Luxembourg, made in Luxembourg, made with upcycled materials or produced consciously with ethically supplied materials, they are all products you can trust.

From 11:00am to 5:30pm you’ll be able to shop for jewellery, t-shirts, clothes made of natural materials, handmade bags and soaps, as well as homeware and a great vintage clothing stand!

Participating brands & designers include: Anay Designs, Akabobus, Art Savon, Be Bold by Diamany, DA-ME, Duchess Boulevard, Kathy Grandjenette, Filo Doppio, Kimby Stone friperie, Les Sûtras, Impashion, Passe-moi-le-sel-cherie, Re-Designer, Risaikourou, Sopilipili, and What.Eve.Wears.

During the event, you will be able to enjoy the result of our Ethical Fashion Challenge: local fashion designers (Atelier Gaumais, Bastien Sebillot, Egle Ozyte, Morena Couture, WEW Upcycling Project & Risaikourou) will showcase their creations made with the Upcycling technique specifically for the event. You and your children will discover Knitting (Mamie & Moi) and Upcycling (Shirley & Stylianee) and learn how to combine creativity and fashion in environmentally-friendly ways. Do not miss the Capsule Wardrobe Workshop, aiming to teach you how to dress with style with a few timeless pieces. Colour combination and accessories will save you from the clutter (Stylized U).

To close the day not only with fun, but also with meaningful discussion, we have brought together some experts on the topic of fashion industry challenges. At 15:00 Christina Brömmel from CID Fraen an Gender, Philippe Schockweiler from Greenpeace Luxembourg, Daniela Ragni from Caritas Luxembourg & Rosa Villalobos from Impashion will be ready to touch upon the situation and look for solutions!

Last, but not least, at 4:30pm there will be a screening of Alex James’ documentary, “Slowing Down Fast Fashion in OV”.  Alex James, Blur-bassist turned cheese​maker, presents this critical look at the fashion industry, and its enormous human and environmental cost.
