Embracing Transparency: Riley + Ro's Commitment during Fashion Revolution Week

Embracing Transparency: Riley + Ro's Commitment during Fashion Revolution Week

Fashion Revolution Week Demands Transparency

In a world where fast fashion dominates, Fashion Revolution Week stands as a beacon of awareness and change. From April 15th to April 24th, individuals, brands, and organizations unite to demand transparency and sustainability in the fashion industry. Amidst this global movement, Riley + Ro is doubling down on its commitment to these values.


Fashion Revolution Week commemorates the Rana Plaza tragedy in Bangladesh in 2013, where a garment factory collapse took the lives of over 1,100 people and injured thousands more. This catastrophic event exposed the harsh realities of the fashion industry's supply chain, igniting a call for accountability and ethical practices.

Since then, Fashion Revolution Week has been a platform for advocacy, education, and action, urging consumers to question #WhoMadeMyClothes and encouraging brands to prioritize transparency.

Riley + Ro: Fashion with Integrity

Founded on the principles of transparency, ethical sourcing, and environmental responsibility, Riley + Ro hopes to lead by example in an industry often marred by exploitation and environmental degradation.

Unlike many fast fashion brands that obscure their supply chains and manufacturing processes, Riley + Ro proudly shares the journey of each garment, from concept to creation. Through its website and social media channels, Riley + Ro provides insight into the artisans, factories, and materials behind its inaugural collection, fostering a sense of connection and accountability with its customers.
