A Movement To Reform Fashion
Boohoo has made no commitment to #PayUp
2-8-21 – Boohoo purchases Burton, Wallis and Dorothy Perkins from failed retailer Arcadia Group, but does not agree to #PayUp to Arcadia Group’s suppliers, which are owed $100 million. Boohoo doesn’t purchase the Arcadia brands stores, costing 2,450 retail workers their jobs.
12-14-20 – As of November, Boohoo has not responded to inquiries from Business & Human Rights Resource Centre as to the status of their orders placed prior to the pandemic. Given the brand’s unethical sourcing practices during the pandemic and their lack of transparency surrounding the status of orders, PayUp Fashion has added Boohoo (Nasty Gal, PrettyLittleThing) to our Brand Tracker.
7-6-2020 – An investigation by The Sunday Times (UK) finds that garment workers in Leicester-based factories sewing clothing for Boohoo-owned brand Nasty Gal are paid sub-minimum wages and forced to work during lockdown in unsafe conditions. This investigation builds off the findings of a June 2020 report by Labour Behind the Label.
