Fashion Question Time in Parliament

This week Mary hosted the second Fashion Question Time in Parliament with Fashion Revolution, to mark the start of Fashion Revolution Week. Speakers included film producer and Oxfam Global Ambassador Livia Firth, alongside Desmond Swayne MP, Minister for International Development, and Mike Kane MP, Shadow Minister for International Development. 

Over 140 people attended the event, including journalists from Vogue and employees of large brands such as Burberry and House of Fraser. The panel discussion raised important issues surrounding transparency in the supply chain of clothes and the working conditions for garment workers across the world.

This year marks the third anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh. Fashion Revolution Week remembers the women and men who died and were injured, and want to make sure that child labour and unsafe conditions are eradicated from the fashion supply chain. There must be no more fashion victims.

To get involved in Fashion Revolution week ask brands: #‎whomademyclothes? on Twitter.
