Fashion Revolution at Upward Dog

By April 18, 2017May 24th, 2018Blog

Yes yes! Fashion Revolution week is coming up on the 24th to the 30th of April and we are excited.  Fashion Revolution is all about making the fashion industry accountable for the way that the workers in the manufacturing process are treated.  You might have come across the #whomademyclothes and #fashionrevolution hashtags.  You will be seeing them a lot more next week, as people show the labels on their clothes and ask manufacturers the question, ‘who made my clothes’?  Changing the way an industry works can seem hard, which is why a global initiative like this one is great.  It is one, of course, that we can all opt in to.

The Fashion Revolution website has lots of resources, from images that you can post on social media, to information about the cause of making fashion more ethical, and tool kits if you want to get active! Fashion Revolution Australia’s page is here and their FB page is here, where different campaigns, events, resources and inspiring stuff are all listed.

To celebrate the revolution we are having a sale on our ethically accredited brands.  Both Dharma Bums and Yogiic are Australian activewear businesses that have had their garments accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia.  They are also accredited as being Australian Made.  We love this level of transparency, and any new activewear stock we get from now on has to be similarly accredited or traceable.

Dharma Bums make beautiful, high performance yoga and activewear, and are now sold in 75 countries.  We have some fun Dharma Bums printed leggings which hug the body and move with you, some styling navy mesh panel leggings, a sexy mesh panel active tank, and the perfect active top, the bamboo twisted back tee.

Yogiic are a newer player in the activewear game, but their minimalist, thoughtfully designed gear is perfect for moving.  We have some great basics from Yogiic: a white and a charcoal top, some luxe layer shorts, and a beautiful crop top that you can wear with a top over it, or on its own.  There is also a bit of a mesh theme in our Yogiic stock.

So, the nitty gritty: from the 24th to the 30th of April 20% will be taken off all of our Dharma Bums and Yogiic items! This is in addition to any existing sale prices.  No code needed, the prices will be already reduced.  You can pay using debit or credit card, Paypal, zipPay or Afterpay.  We have free shipping for Australian orders over $100 (excludes express or international shipping).

Hooray.  More revolution; more.
