Carry Somers

Founder of Fashion Revolution, a global coalition calling for greater transparency in the fashion supply chain #whomademyclothes

A successful fashion designer for over 20 years, Carry Somers was inspired to act after the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh. Alongside co-founder Orsola de Castro, Carry has built Fashion Revolution into a global coalition calling for systemic reform of the fashion supply chain. In two years, it has grown into a worldwide platform with teams in around 80 countries.

Fashion Revolution Day is an annual appointment on 24 April, the anniversary of the disaster, to tackle some of the fashion industry’s most pressing issues. It will keep the most vulnerable in the supply chain in the public eye and challenge the industry to do better. Fashion Revolution uses the power of fashion to inspire change and reconnect the broken links in the supply chain by asking the question #whomademyclothes?
