The majority of fashion brands are not sustainable. Trends alternate at lightning speed and every six weeks there is a new collection in the large fast fashion chains. For example, our clothing consumption has more than doubled since the year 2000. The high intensity of fast fashion puts pressure on production costs and makes the industry even more polluting. Clearly, much remains to change in the fashion industry. Fast fashion should make way for slow fashion.
