FASHION REVOLUTION WEEK
Apr

to Apr 27

FASHION REVOLUTION WEEK

Fashion Revolution is a global movement that runs all year long. We believe in a fashion

industry that values people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. We want

to unite people and organisations to work together towards radically changing the way our

clothes are sourced, produced and consumed, so that our clothing is made in a safe, clean and

fair way.

Fashion Revolution Week is our #whomademyclothes campaign in April, which falls on the

anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1138 people and injured many

more on 24 th April 2013. That is the day Fashion Revolution was born.

This year, we are delighted to announce The Fashion Revolution Hub at COLAB, launching

on Saturday 20 th of April, and hosting a programme of events from the 22 nd to the 27 th . This

space will aim to inform and educate about fashion’s impacts on the world, in a way that is

welcoming to all. We will be holding a variety of creative workshops, industry talks, film

screenings, Q&A’s and more. We will also have an ongoing swapshop and be exhibiting work

by young Glasgow based designers focussed on the mission of sustainable fashion.

Scotland’s Fashion Revolution team are thrilled to have this opportunity within COLAB to

engage with the Glasgow community, celebrating fashion as a positive influence while also

scrutinising industry practices and raising awareness of fashion’s most pressing issues.

FABRICATION

to Apr 24

FABRICATION

Jennie and Ruth met at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design where they both studied Illustration, graduating in 2017 and 2018 respectively. They both work in a distinct style utilising limited colour palettes and abstract imagery, making their design work highly complimentary of each others’, while remaining distinct. Their mutual interest in mythology and folk tales led to their decision to work together to exhibit at COLAB. They have enjoyed seeing where their independent research has taken them, while bouncing ideas off each other, culminating in the body of work which will be shown at FABRICATION in April.
