WHAT IS "FAST FASHION"?
“Fast fashion” is a name for disposable fashions–the styles that come out as soon as they are seen in the fashion previews. They are delivered to the stores that specialize in them in almost no time for ridiculously low prices. These items are viewed as disposable or throw-away-because they are so cheaply and quickly made–with poor quality and workmanship. You can only wear a piece a few times before it’s done and laundering could render it useless. It is being blamed for pollution, both in production of clothes and in the decay of cheap synthetic fabric.Then there is the matter of people who make these clothes and are paid pennies…
Yes, they make some cute, trendy things–but there will be a bigger cost in the long run…and we’ll all be paying for it.
Pay attention–think twice.
