In a nutshell, it's about transparency within the fashion industry and asking companies and brands "Who made my clothes?".
The reality of it is that very few brands really know who is making their clothes and the real people behind the manufacture process. Fashion revolution wants to change this and are encouraging everyone to turn their clothes inside out to show the garments label, take a photograph and then uploading it to Instagram and other social media sites, tagging the brand and asking them "who made my clothes?".

Marks and Spencer recently became transparent and amother company called Honest By also show where there clothes are made and breaks down the entire cost of each item - this company really is worth checking out- talk about eye opening!
...... it isn't just about asking "who made my clothes?". It's also a chance for us who sew to say " I made my clothes" and for those who sew for others and their own bushiness to exclaim "I made your clothes"!!
