Ever wonder exactly who is behind the fabric of your designer jeans? Fashion Revolution aims to expose just that and a lot more to San Diegans on Friday, April 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. Attendees can meet with designers, take photos in the photo booth and enjoy craft beers from Monkey Paw Brewing.
The mission behind Fashion Revolution is to bring together all aspects of the fashion process in an attempt to raise awareness for a more sustainable, honest industry. The organization also hopes to shed light, as a global movement, on the “true cost of fashion,” showing that change can be achieved in the controversial and sometimes irresponsible fashion industry.
Fashion Revolution is a week-long event, taking place different days in each city or country. The San Diego event will gather attendees together to meet local designers from brands who will show the faces of who actually made the clothes they sell.
Joining in on the revolution is easily done by inserting yourself into the media campaign with the hashtag #whomademyclothes. With the hashtag, the public can ask any brand they choose, openly, about where their clothes actually came from. The end goal is to have brands respond with #imadeyourclothes, showing the public the faces of who exactly has helped to create our clothing, making the whole operation a more transparent, united entity.
This event is free to attend and will take place at 3009 Grape St., South Park.
