Shaping Fashion Lahore

Global Shapers Lahore Hub celebrated Fashion Revolution Week from 23rd – 29th September 2018 through a series of awareness campaigns all across the city. In partnership with Fashion Revolution, a non-profit organization based in the U.K., the hub campaigned to ask #whomademyclothes, to shed light on ethical fashion, sustainability and better working conditions in clothes factories. Fashion Revolution Week commemorates the tragic Rana Plaza Factory incident on 24 April 2013 in Bangladesh that killed 1,138 people and injured thousands. It was a moment of reflection for ethical fashion and sparked a movement that demands transparency on the fashion supply chain including better working conditions and proper wages, the true costs of fast fashion and improving industrial conditions. It aims to create better regulation and legal support systems for workers, and accountability in the fashion industry. The Lahore Hub held placards asking #whomademyclothes throughout the week, raised awareness on social media platforms and held screenings of the documentary “True Cost” across Lahore. True Cost documents the impact of the fashion industry and its human and environmental costs. The hub partnered with the following universities for the documentary screenings: Punjab University (PU), Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), National College of Arts (NCA), Lahore Lahore College of Women University (LCWU).
