Do you know slow fashion? This new trend is, you guessed it, in opposition to the fast fashion. Slow fashion is in accordance with Jourdain’s values.
For some years now, in order to satisfy the ever-increasing demand of consumers, the fashion industry offers new products every two weeks. Forget the traditional spring-summer and autumn-winter arrivals. These stores offer speedily new trends to their customers. The result? A disaster…
Stores can certainly offer cheaper prices. But this presentation of fashion in an accelerated way and these small prices hide major problems. To offer lower prices, companies cut in the quality of textiles, in the quality of the assembly of items. But even more serious, in order to fuel fast-fashion, the workers are crowded into outdated, dangerous buildings. The 2013 Savar building collapse or Rana Plaza collapse is, unfortunately, a good example. The expansion of over-consumption means exploitation of workers. This expansion also means changes in consumer attitudes. To satisfy them, some shops (especially in Dubai) are open 7 days a week ... day and night.
Today the wind seems to be turning. Fast-fashion faces the battle between quality and quantity.
This is where we recognize Jourdain’s values. The slow fashion is a movement that wants to combine fashion, quality, durability, raw materials and respect for the environment.
