Slowing Down On Fast Fashion

Stores like H&M, Forever 21, Zara, and Primark are changing the fashion landscape. They aren’t only rapidly translating high fashion designs into low priced garments. They are also changing how and how quickly clothes are mass produced & consumed. This is especially true in Asian countries. In this episode, Alana and Jacklyn delve into why Fast Fashion is popular in Asian culture, the cost of Fast Fashion, and how anyone can break their Fast Fashion addiction.

If this episode inspires you to wear more ethical fashion, check out these clothing lines: Reformation, Zady, Everlane, MATT&NAT, Of A Kind, People Tree, Mara Hoffman, Rag & Bone, Levi’s, Patagonia, Aday, PACT Apparel, and Stella McCartney.

To break your fast fashion addiction, try having clothing swaps with friends or building a capsule wardrobe. Want more tips? Check out this EPISODE!
