Fashion Revolution and Ethical Consumer have developed a metric to monitor how the fashion industry operates. It's called the Fashion Transparency Index, and it's designed to highlight the lack of openness regarding supply chains in fashion. In this video, Bolanile Maté of Be Better Paris explains how to interpret the index and what its implications might be. 

High-end brands such as Chanel and Hermés are on the lower end of the index, indicating that they are less transparent than those on the higher end of the index, such as Levi's.

Many brands (e.g. H&M) have found themsleves under scrutiny for unsafe labor conditions in the production of their clothing, and this index could inspire consumers to question where exactly the clothes on their back came from.

"Of course," Maté notes, "the fashion industry is not loving this."
