Love clothes but don’t want to support oppression? Fashion Revolution MN is for you. The series, part of a global festival, marks the anniversary of the 2013 Rena Plaza Factory collapse in Bangladesh where 1,134 garment workers were killed. Since that tragic event, fashion revolutionaries have been honoring the memories of those lost by encouraging everyone to ask the question: Who made my clothes? The series is part of Fashion Week MN, and its upcoming events include a spring clothing swap from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, April 20, at St. Catherine University; an ethical wardrobe workshop hosted by the Minnesota Women’s Collective from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Monday, April 24, at True Ethic; a mending lab from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 25, at Junket: Tossed and Found; and a fashion show from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 27, at Hazel & Rose. More ethical gatherings are planned throughout the rest of the month, so follow @Fash_Rev_MN and #FashRev for updates. Events are free. Full lineup, locations, and additional info here.
