David Jones has unveiled a capsule collection to mark Fashion Revolution Week. The capsule collection features 23 limited edition pieces, made in Australia exclusively for David Jones by four of its Ethical Clothing Australia (ECA®) accredited brands: Bianca Spender x The Social Outfit, Manning Cartell, Nobody Denim and Viktoria & Woods.

 

The capsule collection will be on sale from 16 April 2018 until 29 April 2018 (Fashion Revolution Week runs from 23-29 April), available from custom-built pop-up spaces at David Jones Elizabeth Street and Bourke Street. The full range will also be available from the David Jones Online Store on Sunday 15th April which will also feature exclusive pieces from each band.

The David Jones Fashion Revolution Week campaign aims to connect customers with the skilled garment makers producing clothing for some of Australia’s most loved fashion brands. Online and instore, the educational campaign shows the capsule being manufactured, highlighting ECA’s work to ensure safe working conditions and fair wages for workers in the local industry.

David Jones Managing Director Clothing and General Merchandise, David Collins said, “We are very pleased to be working with such a highly regarded group of Australian designers for Fashion Revolution Week 2018. It’s an incredibly powerful campaign which shines a spotlight on those who make our clothes and we are proud to support the movement with our campaign. Responsible sourcing is a key facet of the David Jones Good Business Journey and we hope the initiative enables our customers to gain an insight into how these collections were made so they can make more informed shopping choices.”

Fashion Revolution Week was established on 24 April, 2014, the first anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, claiming the lives of 1,138 workers and injuring 2,500 others. Fashion Revolution celebrates fashion as a positive influence, and through the #WhoMadeMyClothes social media campaign, provides a platform to connect consumers to those who make their clothes. Fashion Revolution Week 2018 runs from April 23 – 29.
