The glitz and glamour of New York Fashion week was interrupted by grim images depicting the reality of the fast fashion industry this week. Labor activists forced designers and fans to acknowledge their contribution to the suffering of those who were killed or injured by the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh. Labor activists were able to beam the faces of Rana Plaza’s victims onto the exterior of Lincoln Center during New York Fashion Week. Protestors also marched upon The Children’s Place, one of several retailers that have failed to compensate victims of the disaster.
