Design Talks, The Case Against Fast Fashion Collaborations

There is  an article that is really worth to read:

Op-Ed /Making The Case Against Fast Fashion Collaborations by Eugene Rabkin

 

“Providing access to affordable clothing is a noble goal. But, alas, this goal was perverted a long time ago by the rise of irresponsible consumer behaviour that has transformed the act of shopping into a leisure activity. According to Textile Recycling for Aid and International Development (TRAID), consumers in the UK purchase a whopping 2.15 million tonnes of new clothing a year. They also throw away over 900,000 garments each year, sometimes with the sales tags still on them. In the US, the picture is even more dire, with consumers dumping an estimated 10 million tonnes of clothing annually.”

  1. Sis ir briesmiigi kaa mees dziivojam, kaa praatini ir samudzinaati… Kkad loti sen atpakalj uk tv bija programma kas paliidzeeja it kaa cilveekiem kas peerk peerk peerk un nevar apstaaties, kas tieshaam nemaz nezin, ko sapirkushi, kur to nogruudushi un nekad nevalkaajusi jo cena veel klaat….. Es par laimi diezgan to apzinoties esmu prieciiga ka visas manas drebes ar virsjakaam un dzinsiem ietilpst 4aas atvilktnees. Un ne jau par daudzumu pat iet runa bet kaads tam visam sakars, reaali man nav nekaadu daargu izejamu dreebju jo nekur neizeju, skola majas, majas skola, majas ha ha ha… Mazs berns jaavedaa shurpu turpu…. Un pat ja manas pashas skapis – atvilktnes paliek par shauru, tad tas ir uz taa reekina, ka maacos shuut, izprast apgeerbu….. Bet nu jaa tas jau nav tikai nepraats peec apgerba, kosmeetikas, tas irarii ar eedienu, lielajaam majaam, mashiinaam…mazliet cits stastun tomer… Paldies
