A Movement To Reform Fashion
Fashion Nova has not agreed to #PayUp
1-12-21 – Fashion Nova, a company with a long history of labor rights violations in its Los Angeles supply chain, has failed to protect its workers at its distribution center in L.A., where 203 cases of coronavirus have been reported, making it the third-largest ongoing outbreak in the state.
12-16-21 – A Department of Labor investigation finds that Fashion Nova relies on a network of sweatshops in Los Angeles, California paying workers as little as $2.77 an hour. Workers are owed an estimated $3.8 million in stolen wages and overtime from sewing clothes for Fashion Nova.
8-17-21 – Fashionnova has not committed to The Transparency Pledge and, notably, it does not appear to publicly disclose even a basic tier 1 cut-and-sew garment factory list. Tier 1 transparency is the absolute lowest bar of compliance in fashion and since the company has yet to meet it, we have given Fashionnova a “NO” under Go Transparent.
In addition to the above, to receive a “YES” for Action 3 on the PayUp Fashion Tracker, Fashionnova must a) disclose its tier 2 (fabric mills), tier 3 (yarn and fiber mills) and tier 4 (raw materials) suppliers; b) disclose the wages of the lowest-earning workers at each factory and c) share audit and remediation reports publicly, and make these findings available to the garment workers in the audited factories.
