Futerra Fashion Revolutionaries 2020

Fashion Revolution is a not-for-profit global movement with teams in over 100 countries around the world. With a focus on the need for greater transparency in the fashion supply chain, the organisation campaign for systemic reform of the fashion industry. Started in 2013 in the wake of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, which took the lives of at least 1,134 garment workers, Fashion Revolution exists to ensure that no tragedy of this magnitude will happen again in the garment industry. The mission of Fashion Revolution is to encourage consumers to ask brands #WhoMadeMyClothes, thereby demanding that companies ensure every garment is made in conditions where workers are safe, fairly treated and free from gender-based violence or harassment.

Fashion Revolution is a pro-fashion movement close to Futerra’s heart: we created their brand, visual identity, messaging, website and campaign assets, as well as toolkits and guidelines to engage with consumers and communities across 62 countries. Sitting on the board of FRD and often acting as a strategic communications advisor, Futerra continues to work with Fashion Revolution, most notably on their award-winning campaign film in 2018.

Fashion is one of the main industries that Futerra works with and we have a deep understanding and a wealth of experience of embedding sustainability and circularity in fashion. We are connected with some of the greatest change makers in the industry, from those leading sustainability within global brands to heads of non-profits that advocate for systems change. Each year for Fashion Revolution Day, we champion members of the community and invite them to share their vision of the future fashion industry.
