Fashion Revolution Day’s NYFW Event: Your Invite Here!



Fashion Revolution Day aims to honor the lives of the 1133 sweatshop laborers killed and over 2500 injured due to unsafe working conditions on April 24th, 2014, one year following the Rana Plaza garment factory collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh. With participation from over 30 countries worldwide, the Fashion Revolution campaign is quickly gaining momentum with consumers, designers and celebrities alike.

Amber Valletta – supermodel, actress and founder of premiere socially responsible online store Master & Muse – is inspired to wear her clothes #INSIDEOUT on April 24th, Fashion Revolution Day: “We all need to pay attention to how and where our clothes are made because we share a common thread: humanity.”

The #INSIDEOUT/NYFW event will feature installations honoring the victims of Rana Plaza and the launch of the #INSIDEOUT photo contest, where consumers are encouraged to find out “Who made your clothes?” and take photos of themselves wearing outfits #INSIDEOUT  to win designer clothing from ethical brands likeIndigenous.

The #INSIDEOUT party will salute the designers, fashionistas and thought-leaders on the cutting edge of ethical fashion. Music will be provided by DJ Spooky, celebrated performer, artist in residence at the Museum of Metropolitan Art and executive editor of Origin Magazine. Treats will be provided by vegan gourmet eatery Candle Café.
