Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA) and RMIT Sustainability Team, invite you to learn about who’s making your clothes locally and to find out what’s happening globally, in an event recognising garment workers and manufacturers as part of Fashion Revolution Week 2019.
The event will include a panel discussion, insights into what goes on behind the scenes in the manufacturing process and it will discuss how much progress has been made in the production of ethical fashion globally since the Rana Plaza collapse.
The panel will feature ECA National Manager, Angela Bell and Senior Research Fellow, Dr Shelley Marshall from RMIT Graduate School of Business and Law, an expert in labour rights and corporate accountability. The panel will also be facilitated by a Ms Kiri Delly, Associate Dean, Industry Engagement from RMIT School of Fashion + Textiles.
The event will also spotlight a selection of ECA-accredited manufacturers who produce locally in Australia and give insight into the skills, capabilities and machinery required for the respective textile, clothing and footwear products they specialise in.
Fashion Revolution Week falls on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1138 people and injured many more on the 24th of April 2013.
Arrive early to be seated for a prompt 6:00pm start. RMIT will provide free popcorn and refreshments on arrival, before the event's panel session gets underway.
