WHO IS FASHION REVOLUTION
Fashion Revolution is a global movement that runs throughout the year, celebrating fashion as a positive influence, raising awareness of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues, showing that change is possible and celebrating those who are on a journey to create a more ethical and sustainable future for fashion. We believe in a fashion industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. We want to see fashion become a force for good. This is Fashion Revolution, a movement now in over 90 countries, of which the South African team plays a key role.
FASHION REVOLUTION AT MBFWCT17
Fashion Revolution is proud to be a part of MBFWCT17, presenting the first ever ethical group fashion show from local designers. This creative platform enables the local division of the Fashion Revolution movement to showcase and give the South African public a glimpse into the growth of sustainable fashion within the country.
Our show is a boutique collection of designers, who represent an ever-growing force on the continent. The world’s eyes are currently on Africa as a design mecca. Our continent has a rich history of tradition and culture and we at Fashion Revolution are on a path to cultivate and expose those designers who are giving back, whilst developing a strong brand on African soil. Brands that not only take our continent into consideration but the future of our planet as a whole – and this is done through environmentally and ethically produced concepts.
