LONDON – 70 out of the 200 major fashion brands contacted are now publicly listing their first-tier manufacturers, where clothes are cut, sewn and finished according to the latest Transparency Index by Fashion Revolution. This figure is up significantly on the 32 which were found to be disclosing supplier lists in 2017, when the index was launched. While it illustrates a steady shift towards transparency in global apparel supply chains, it needs to be borne in mind that more than half of brands contacted declined to contribute to the study, while many that did fill in questionnaires are still failing to publicly list any supplier information.
