Dying for Fashion
The collapse of the Rana Plaza factory building in April 2013 killed 1,127 people, injured 2,000 and exposed the western world to the diabolical working conditions in Indian clothing factories. Labels were quick to distance themselves from the tragedy. Following the events, a team of lawyers at French NGO Sherpa, supporters of victims of economic crime, are working to expose the continuing hypocrisy of major high street brands and see that they're held liable for violations against international standards.
