STREETWARE X FASHION REVOLUTION
STREETWARE X FASHION REVOLUTION
Fashion Revolution was founded in the wake of the Rana Plaza disaster in 2013 and it has become the world’s largest fashion activism movement, mobilising citizens, industry and policymakers through our research, education and advocacy work.
Fashion Revolution Week happens every year in the week coinciding with 24th April, the anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh. The Rana Plaza building housed a number of garment factories, employing around 5,000 people. The people in this building were manufacturing clothing for many of the biggest global fashion brands. The building collapsed and killed 1,134 people and injured more than 2,500 others, making it the fourth largest industrial disaster in history. The victims were mostly young women. During Fashion Revolution Week, we remember the lives lost and demand that no one should die for fashion. It is the time when we come together as a global community to create a better fashion industry.
Streets are the places of revolution: steps on asphalt give sound to political manifestos. Decisions are forced by silent marches, fists are clenched to chanted slogans. We understand fashion revolution revolution as the challenge of not only reviewing our habitual thought patterns, production methods and consumer behaviour, but also of radically changing them.
Lenk mit uns einen fahrbaren Wäscheständer durch die Straßen Neuköllns. Lass dich inspirieren von abgestreiften textilen Hüllen und Hosenbeinen. Der Weg zum eigenen Stil führt über das Pflaster der Stadt! Roll mit uns um die Häuser und genieß den Flow zirkulärer Lebensweise.
What are you looking for? Is it a pair of petrol blue G-Star Raw sweatpants, that little black dress by Dior or one of those Calvin Klein sport bras?
Berlin’s most sustainable fashion label STREETWARE saved item offers the largest and most diverse range of fashion brands in town! When we roam the streets of the metropolis, we don’t fall for the tempting promise of shop windows or rummage tables in the street. Shopping online with Zalando has long become a thing of the past. The garments you’re now looking for were once offered in boxes on windowsills or doorsteps, labeled “free to take”. Discover tie-neck blouses and tank tops, a baby’s first dress or a pair of oversized baggy jeans in the most urban areas of the city: showcased on the banks of the gutters, nonchalantly draped over bollards – where public and private spheres seamlessly merge into each other.
STREETWARE saved item makes fashion sustainable and accessible. For everyone. For all.
We kindly invite you to join us at the clothes rack at Saturday, April 24, 2021.
