When you buy a piece of clothing, what’s your money doing? Who’s reaping the rewards and who’s losing out? Fashion revolution is exploring the flows of money and structures of power across the fashion supply chain in order to continue to push for greater transparency through investigative research, inspiring informative content and creative events. This year Fashion revolution wants to ignite an even bigger global conversation about what we wear and the stories behind our clothes –from the people who make them, the companies that sell them, to how we wear, care and dispose of them. The organization is working on an innovative research study exploring the lives and wages of garment workers in partnership with Microfinance opportunities, so as to document the daily lives of 540 garment workers in Bangladesh, Cambodia and India. It will publish the second edition of the Fashion Transparency Index in 2017, which will include 100 global brands and retailers. This will help us understand what information companies are sharing with the public about how they operate and who makes their clothes. 

 In addition, Fashion revolution is looking for submissions (illustrations, poetry, writing, comics, photos, doodles and more) for a new zine.
