Fashion Revolution Week 2018 is almost upon us for another year!
From the 23rd to the 29th of April, conscious consumers will be asking brands: Who Made My Clothes?
For the entire month of April, we will be sharing more about Fashion Revolution, incredible stories, inspiring people and what you can do to be part of the global movement.
To get started here are some of the amazing Fashion Revolution events happening all around Australia.

The True Cost is a ground-breaking documentary film that invites us on an eye-opening journey around the world exploring the impact of fashion on people and the planet. It asks us to consider, who really pays the price of our clothing?
We’d love for you to join us at our next tommie community event where we’ve teamed up with Jenny Leong, the Greens MP for Newtown, to present an evening dedicated to locally made, ethical fashion in support of Fashion Revolution Week!
As part of Fashion Revolution week, the Green Living Centre and Reverse Garbage have joined to take you on a bus tour of some of the ethical clothing shops in the inner west.
The tour will cover op shops as well as shops that sell new clothes that are ethically made. It’s a great chance to have conversations about what “sustainable” means to you whilst finding a one-of-a-kind piece and it’s FREE!
Suitcase Rummage is a mini scaled market with giant rewards! We will be set up on the linear walkway and open space walking trail in the heart of Sydney!
Aimed at supporting emerging artists, crafters and second-hand marketeers. Suitcase Rummage is focused on fostering Australia’s entry-level entrepreneurs and their locally produced handmade, recycled and up-cycled products – from a suitcase!
