Pale Girl Style
Today, the 24th of April, marks the anniversary of the Rama Plaza disaster in Bangladesh.
That’s when Fashion Revolution was born.
There were five garment factories in Rana Plaza all manufacturing clothing for big global brands. The victims were mostly young women.
This is why, during Fashion Revolution Week, we encourage as many people as possible to ask #whomademyclothes?
It starts with you! Ask yourself: “Who made my clothes?” And then most importantly, ask the brands and retailers you buy from.
Some brands won’t answer at all. Some might tell you where your clothes were made but not who made them. Some will direct you to their Corporate Social responsibility Policy. That’s not good enough. Keeping asking until you get right down to the factory where your garment was made or even the name of the person who made it.
If a brand doesn’t respond, keep asking. Our power is in persistence. The more people who keep asking #whomademyclothes, the more brands will listen.

Wow has it been Hot! Isn't that the understatement of the century!
I hope you managed to stay cool over Christmas and spent some relaxing time with your family and friends.
I headed back to stinking hot Adelaide to see my family and had a wonderful time. Boy did that cool breeze feel wonderful on Christmas afternoon. .
I wore Sha-de pretty much every day of my holiday, mainly because I hate to sweat. I love love love the snow and feeling freezing cold so anything that can help me to feel less sweaty, well I am all over it.
I hate sweaty inner thighs the most, feeling your legs rub together is something I wish I could avoid. Well I may have found the solution…Pants! I wore my Portsea pants everywhere, even to my first day back at work. The bamboo fabric is cool to touch, is breathable and absorb the sweat away from your body.
I wore the Bondi Drop Crotch pant on New Year’s eve back in Melbourne which was also a hot stinker and felt so cool and comfortable. I am so in love with pants at the moment that I want you to be too, so I am giving my secret Pale Girls style subscribers a New Year’s gift. 25% off pants for this weekend, only until end of Sunday 10th January.
