One of these people is Carry Somers, co-founder and global operations director of Fashion Revolution, an organisation which has used the catastrophe which saw 1,138 garment workers lose their lives to ensure transparency was no longer allowed to be an opt-in concept for global fashion brands and retailers.

Ahead of the fifth annual Fashion Revolution Week, Somers spoke exclusively to Ecotextile News to discuss why Fashion Revolution is more than just a hashtag, more than just a week of events, and more than just a run-of-the-mill fashion campaign.
