Today is Fashion Revolution Day and Alison McGovern MP for Wirral South is asking people across Merseyside to participate by finding out who made their clothes.
Fashion Revolution Day is taking place to remember the victims of the Rana Plaza disaster who lost their lives a year ago today when the factory that they were working in collapsed in Bangladesh.
Alison said: “Fashion Revolution day is about people being asked to do a simple thing in asking who made their clothes. Anybody can get involved. Whilst this may seem a small thing to do it could lead to a big change within the fashion industry. I really think consumers have the power to lead the way for change and this is why I think it is really important to get the conversation going”
She added: “It is about raising awareness of the working conditions people in factories contend with and making people think more about the clothes that they buy. It is important that we all remember what happened in Bangladesh a year ago today and that as a collective we come together to navigate change. Liverpool is famous for its fashion I know that people in Merseyside like to look good and take pride in their appearance so it would be great if they could get on board.
Fashion Revolution Day is a campaign that Alison, along with her parliamentary colleague and fellow Labour MP and shadow consumer minister, MP Stella Creasy has shown her full support for.
To get involved people are being asked to wear their clothes inside out or you can contact the brand of your clothes on social media via Twitter or Facebook or even make a video and send it to your brand.
