Last Thursday was the first Fashion Revolution Day, marking the one year anniversary of the horrific factory collapse in Bangladesh. Over a thousand people lost their lives and hundreds more where injured. All were working in clothing factories with questionable conditions and really should make us question where our clothes comes from. That’s the idea of Fashion Revolution Day anyway. You may have seen my post on Facebook with my clothes inside out asking the brand, who made my clothes?
Glad Rags Glasgow along with ReFashion Glasgow put together a little clothes swapping event to mark the day. We were also treated to a blogger Style off with the lovely Forever Yours Betty, Miss West End Girl and Last Years Girl using pieces from a ranges of sustainable fashion. There’s loads of pics of their outfits on Glad Rags Instagram, worth checking out – the outfits were fab no boring hemp here.
I did quite nicely with the clothes swap picking up three ‘new’ items. Two dresses for work sure to be featured in and ootd soon and a gorgeous green sequin top, my favourite colour and some sparkle. The venue was quite dark so I got no decent photos of the event, you know I rely on my little Iphone, no snazzy DSLR for me. I did get some outfit shots outside though. This was the first outing of my new specs, what do you all think?
Play suit – Topshop
Shirt – Primark
