Overview

The fashion industry's supply chains are complex systems that connect laborers with consumers all over the world. Unfortunately, these supply chains typically incorporate a troubling amount of human and environmental exploitation. If fashion companies are unwilling to change from the top-down, how can we work together to change their exploitative practices?

The Fashion Revolution is a global movement that aims to educate consumers about the garment supply chain and inspire them to take part in simple, achievable tasks to enact change. This three-week FutureLearn course presented by the University of Exeter introduces us to the Fashion Revolution and its goals by starting from the question: 'Who made my clothes?'

Ian Cook is a Professor of Cultural Geography at the University of Exeter, while Verity Jones is a Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of West England, Bristol. In this course, the educators introduce us to the basics of the fashion industry and global supply chains, as well as the social justice movement seeking to make them ethical and sustainable.
