Are you familiar with the Fashion Revolution event?
After the tragedy that occurred on 24 April of 2013, when the Rana Plaza complex collapsed in Dhaka Bangladesh causing the loss of 1134 lives and making over 2500 were injured, Fashion Revolution Organization was born.
They believe “that fashion can be made in a safe, clean and beautiful way. Where creativity, quality, environment and people are valued equally.”
We believe in this too!
Fashion Revolution aims to “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.” As makers we are part of this story, and we definitely know and value the work that is put into making a garment or accessory, so its also in our hands to make our family, friends, followers sensible to this issue. Fast and cheap fashion has great costs on the workers and on the planet and we should definitely protect them both.
This year Petit à Petit and Family decided to join the campaign and we are hosting a Handmade Fashion Revolution Week between 18 and 24 of April. We’ll be sharing some special posts throughout the week and we will be having a giveaway with some really great prizes.
To enter the giveaway you’ll have to take a photo of yourself or of your kids wearing a garment you made inside out and holding either this handmade Fashion Revolution poster (here) if you’re showing something you made for yourself or this one (here) if you’re showing something you made for your kids, like these examples below. ;)
You'll then have to add it to our link party ( below), which will be open at Petit à Petit and Family Monday's post. The deadline to submit a photo will be Sunday 24th midnight EST. If you share your photo(s) in social media please use the hashtags #FashRev #whomademyclothes #handmadeinsideout #imademyclothes #petitapetitfashrev so we can make our amazing community aware of the Fashion Revolution Event. You're allowed to share more than one photo.
