It's Fashion Revolution Day.
Each year, on the anniversary of the tragic collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory in Bangladesh, brands are challenged to answer the question more consumers are asking: “Who made my clothes?”
Let us introduce you to some of the dedicated members of our local team in Lahore, Pakistan:
"My name is Amjad.
I am 26.
I am an operator and head the stitching to ensure quality is maintained at the stitching end. I guide the operators on stitching techniques for maximum quality, productivity and efficiency.
My favorite part of my job is seeing the final quality of the pieces.
My favorite pastime outside work is socializing with other businessmen to learn more about doing businesses and exploring other business avenues.
My goal in life is to build my own house and to do whatever I can to make the future of my kids bright."
"My name is Abbas.
I am 23.
I am in charge of cutting, supervising the workers and making daily production reports. I am also in charge of final quality and final packing of orders.
My favorite part of my job is to keep my team members satisfied.
My favorite pastime outside of work is dealing in the sale and purchase of property.
My five year plan is to earn enough so I can take my parents for Hajj."
Victoria Road was born out of our admiration of the designers, artisans and tailors creating beautiful fashion in Pakistan.
It is our top priority to ensure that every individual involved in the creation of the products we carry is treated with dignity and respect.
