Fashion news and trends Made in Spain for US market.
Slow fashion or eco fashion is a concept that many designers and brands are using since few years ago. Sustainable products and materials are contributing to develop the environment and the communities.
However, last year everything changed. On 24th of April more than 1000 people were killed in the Rana Place in Bangladesh while they were working in a known fashion brand factory. After this event 3 important things became acquainted: the building of the factory was illegal, but the managers of the factory said that was safe working there so the workers went to work and was then when the building started collapsing.
Inside this factory a lot of clothes had been made and you might find them in your wardrobe or in the fast fashion stores.
Fashion Revolution Day was the name chosen to remember what happened and aware the people about who made your clothes, where and under what conditions. This day is a memorial to all the victims of the Bangladesh factory.
