How evil fashion can be in the world

We spend a lot of time talking about the badthings fast fashion retailers have done for fashion — and it’s no brief list. From slave labour, to toxic pollution and quickening turnaround times to a breakneck speed that all but strangles creativity. To put things into perspective here: a 2015 study demonstratedthat 71% of leading brands in the UK believed there was a likelihood of modern slavery occurring at some point in their supply chains. Meanwhile, the WWF asserts that “unsustainable cotton farming, with massive inputs of water and pesticides, has already been responsible for the destruction of large-scale ecosystems such as the Aral Sea in central Asia and the deteriorating health and livelihoods of people living there.” And then, of course, creative revolutionaries like Raf Simons are being forced to up and leave major fashion houses because they simply can’t keep up with the breathless pace now imposed on the luxury space by fast fashion’s ruthless 52 micro-seasons per year. In other words, articles painting fast fashion retailers as ‘evil’ essentially write themselves.👗🌂👜🕶 Hello But the cheap prices on these garments don’t reflect a larger issue of exploited labor, waste of resources, and appalling working conditions. You might have heard of the factory collapse in Bangladesh which killed over 1,000 people – they were forced to sew cheap clothes in a factory that was reportedly falling apart. It seems crazy that a thousand people should lose their lives so Westerners can keep buying their $10 shirts.🖥👼🏻⛪🙏🏼 Fashion is evil like your Boss Luis A.
