Photos: fashion labels in the Rana Plaza rubble

Many brands were quick to deny that they had any connection with, or responsibility for, the Rana Plaza factory collapse.

We have pinned a collection of these photos on a Pinterest board. Please click the image below and have a look!

What we’re putting together here are twitter timelines which show the relationships between photos of different companies’ stuff in the rubble, their (not) signing of the Accord, and their commitments to pay compensation to the victims. We’re starting with Benetton, others will follow…
