- Cutting waste (and unnecessary costs) out of the pre-production process when bringing designs to life
- The culture of waste and overconsumption of fashion in Malaysia, and its impact on the planet
- How textile recyclers are dealing with the effects of mass consumption

Fashion Revolution Week 2021 Viewing Party 1: Made In Bangladesh
Date: 21st April 2021, Tuesday
Time: 9pm to 10pm
A lot of our clothes bear the label ‘Made in Bangladesh’. But before the deadly collapse of Rana Plaza, a garment factory there in April in 2013, most of us never thought about the people who make them. After clothes bound for popular, mainstream brands were found in the rubble of Rana Plaza, these companies reacted with surprise – how could such a tragedy happen?
This documentary tracks down workers who say they are still forced to make clothes in dangerous conditions and goes behind bars for an exclusive interview with the jailed owner of one of the biggest factories inside Rana Plaza, who details his long-standing, multi-million dollar connections to some of the world’s best known brands.
Made in Bangladesh won the 2014 International Emmy® Award for Current Affairs programming.
This session will follow with an open community conversation moderated with Fashion Revolution.
