Barcelona to host sustainable fashion show on April 24
Mar '14
The Spanish city of Barcelona would be hosting a Sustainable Fashion Parade and Ethics show at the Palau Robert on April 24, 2014, during the world Fashion Revolution Day—which is being commemorated in remembrance of the Bangladesh Rana Plaza garment factory collapse.

Organized by the Association of Sustainable Fashion Barcelona with support from Slow Fashion Spain organization—coordinator of the Fashion Revolution Day in Spain, the event would feature more than 20 Spanish apparel brands and independent designers showcasing their sustainable creations on the runway.

CEO of Slow Fashion Spain Gema Gomez said if the consumers knew who made their clothes and how they were made, they would leave them on the stores’ clothes rack.

It is possible to buy high-fashion clothes without affecting the lives of the humans making them, she added.

The Association of Sustainable Fashion Barcelona is hosting the parade with the aim of showing Spanish consumers that there are sustainable alternatives to conventional consumptions and remove fashion labels which do not practice sustainable manufacturing processes.

The Fashion Revolution Day would be celebrated in more than 40 countries on the first anniversary of the Rana Plaza collapse in memory of the 1,100 people who lost their lives during the tragedy.

Carry Somers, founder of Fashion Revolution, said the event has gathered global momentum already, and around 40 countries would be celebrating the initiative which aims to reconnect fashion lovers with people who manufactured their clothes.

The event would be a global campaign during when everyone from international designers, fashion icons, apparel manufacturers, shop owners to cotton farmers would come together and create a movement ‘Who Made Your Clothes?’ the motto of the revolution, in order to promote sustainable fashion.
