Four years ago, 1,138 garment workers were killed in the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh. Fashion Revolution Week sees its third year of promoting the improvement of working conditions and wages in honour of those who have had their lives cut short in the name of fashion.
Celebrities such as Stella McCartney, Lily Cole, Lauren Laverne, and Emma Watson have all backed the movement by taking part in the hashtag #WhoMadeMyClothes, which sees people taking a clothes labels selfie and asking the brand the all-important question.

Eighty per cent of garment factory workers are women aged between 18 and 24 that live in poverty, while on the other end of the scale, the people who own the businesses are some of the richest people in the world.
From April 24 to 30, events will be held across the country to promote a change in the way we wear our clothes, and today a Fashion Question Time is being held in Parliament which will be hosted by MP Mary Creagh that you can follow on the hashtag #FQT.
