Join The Acey for a Fashion Revolution

This week marks the fourth anniversary of the Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh. The Acey is joining with thousands of people around the globe to rally for a fairer, safer, cleaner, and more transparent fashion industry.

This 24th-30th April we'll be highlighting producers from The Acey brands. Each day of Fashion Revolution Week we’ll be bringing you the stories of #whomademyclothes in order to learn more about our producers and share what we've found. Join us and call for a #FashionRevolution.

Fashion Revolution Week at The Acey

What is Fashion Revolution Week? In their own words, it's "a global movement that works for a more sustainable fashion industry, campaigning for a systemic reform of the industry with a special focus on the need for greater transparency in the fashion supply chain." Follow along on instagram and get involved.

This goal is at the core of our business ethos at The Acey. We only work with brands providing employment with dignity and a living wage. Fashion Revolution Week is wonderful opportunity for us to highlight the people that make Style with Purpose possible.

"I like the friendly atmosphere, but especially I cherish the dignity, respect and appreciation that we experience from working here.- Krishna Naska (far right). Krishna also works on the finishing team at EMA. She is a single mum of a son and daughter, whose education she prizes.
