Description

Environmental, social, human and economic impacts of the fashion industry will be examined. As a second most polluting industry in the world today, at a time when fast fashion has become the norm, the need for collectively addressing our influence as consumers, designers and industry leaders will be discussed. The concept of fast fashion, its impact on the industry, and its current wasteful state will be re-examined. The state of the current fashion trends will be examined as the driving force behind the current state of pollution stemming from the fashion industry in the world today. Historical overview of movements of slow fashion, sustainable fashion, and eco-fashion will be discussed. Furthermore, environmental impact of everyday fashion items will be illustrated using creative visuals. In conclusion, a creation of a system that can be supported indefinitely in terms of human impact on the the environment and social responsibility will be proposed. Sustainable fashion, also called eco fashion, will be presented as an alternative trend against fast fashion.
