Fashion Revolution Week takes place around the anniversary of the tragic Rana Plaza factory collapse, which claimed the lives of over 1100 workers and injured 2500 others in late April 2013.
Since then, campaign weeks have been held worldwide under the motto "Who made my clothes? Now in over 100 countries and since 2016 also in Switzerland.
About the Solidar Sew Art project:
Artists deal with the problems of the fast fashion industry, consumer behavior and overproduction in fashion and the resulting mountain of old clothes, show solidarity with the seamstresses of low-wage countries and point out solutions.
Artists from the fields of textiles, fashion, painting, object and installation art, photography and film explore the question of overproduction and the associated consumption of clothing. A mobile embroidery frame invites people to embroider in front of the central shopping streets. The lettering "Menschen machen Kleider" ("People make clothes") appears in the frame.
Let's come together to exchange ideas, look at the Solidar Sew Art project, get inspired and strengthen ourselves to walk the path to sustainable clothing consumption together. Good music and drinks will be provided. In-house organic pizzas will be baked from a wood-fired clay oven rolled in with manpower from Kleinbasel.
