Fast fashion means that the brands produce in countries where labor is very cheap because the laws don't protect the garment workers. The clothes produced are of poor quality and execution, and they get sold at incredibly cheap prices in "rich countries". Since they are trendy in design, they will get out of fashion quite quickly. In fact, fast fashion brands even release new collections every 2 weeks, to make clothes previously purchased... obsolete. How to tell if a brand is "fast fashion": 1. Look at the brands producing in countries and factories where accidents happen. These brands clearly don't care about where and how their clothes get produced... 2. Research to which larger corporations these brands belong. It is very likely that a huge corporation like Inditex (Zara, Mango...) uses similar production methods for all its brands. 3. Understand the mindset of the brands / corporations that belong to the fast fashion industry: if they outsource their productions to countries where labor rights aren't respected, it is probably not to be charitable. Then claiming to use organic cotton (as an example of PR action) just can't make it up for ethically questionable practices. 4. Learn the break down of a price tag. If a Primark t-shirt costs 5€ in retail, how much of that actually goes to the garment worker?

What is FAST FASHION? What does FAST FASHION mean? FAST FASHION meaning - FAST FASHION definition - FAST FASHION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Fast fashion is a contemporary term used by fashion retailers to express that designs move from catwalk quickly to capture current fashion trends. Fast fashion clothing collections are based on the most recent fashion trends presented at Fashion Week in both the spring and the autumn of every year. Emphasis is on optimizing certain aspects of the supply chain for these trends to be designed and manufactured quickly and inexpensively to allow the mainstream consumer to buy current clothing styles at a lower price. This philosophy of quick manufacturing at an affordable price is used in large retailers such as H&M, Zara, Peacocks, Primark, Xcel Brands, and Topshop. It particularly came to the fore during the vogue for "boho chic" in the mid-2000s. This has developed from a product-driven concept based on a manufacturing model referred to as "quick response" developed in the U.S. in the 1980s and moved to a market-based model of "fast fashion" in the late 1990s and first part of the 21st century. Zara has been at the forefront of this fashion retail revolution and their brand has almost become synonymous with the term, but there were other retailers who worked with the concept before the label was applied, such as Benetton. Fast fashion has also become associated with disposable fashion because it has delivered designer product to a mass market at relatively low prices. The slow fashion movement has arisen in opposition to fast fashion, blaming it for pollution (both in the production of clothes and in the decay of synthetic fabrics), shoddy workmanship, and emphasizing very brief trends over classic style. Fast fashion has also come under criticism for contributing to poor working conditions in developing countries. The 2013 Savar building collapse in Bangladesh in 2013, the deadliest garment-related accident in world history, played a critical role in bringing more attention to the safety impact of the fast fashion industry.

Since the 2013 Rana Plaza collapse, the fast fashion industry has seen huge pressure to change its unethical ways. But 6 years on, has anything actually changed? Millions of workers around the world face life threatening work environments as they make cheap clothes for the western world. These clothes will be thrown out only weeks later, due to poor quality. These contribute to massive amounts of pollution and the growing threat of climate change. It's time for us to realise the cost of our shopping habits.

Today, we’re going to look at the history of Zara, its parent company Inditex, and the fashion industry in general, to see how it became possible to create such a high churn rate in the fashion industry. An average American will throw away 77 pounds of clothing every year. And that’s true across the majority of the western world. That is two suitcases of clothes, just dumped. Zara’s first store opened in 1975, in a city called A Coruna in northern Spain. Owners Amancio Ortega and Rosalia Mera had wanted to name it after a favorite Greek film called Zorba the Greek, but a bar on their street had already beat them to the punch, so they settled for Zara, since they had already had the letters made for the sign. Inditex was set up in 1985 as holding company for Zara and the manufacturing plants. They went on to set up and take-over many other high-street brands that follow Zara’s format; such as Pull and Bear, Bershka and Stradivarius. They now have over 6000 stores globally. Zara’s early business model was to create similar copies to high end lines but at an affordable price. As they expanded through Spain, Ortega pushed the idea of instant fashion, where Zara could react incredibly quickly to new trends so they could put new lines on the shelves in a fraction of the normal time. -----------------Support the channel: Support this channel: https://www.patreon.com/alexberman SUBSCRIBE for more videos like this: http://youtube.com/alxberman?sub_confirmation=1 Check out our Digital Agency Marketing Podcast: https://itunes.apple.com/hr/podcast/digital-agency-marketing-1/id1200614219?mt=2&ls=1 Need lead generation or marketing support for your agency?

The fashion industry is on the verge of a tech revolution. Clothes of tomorrow could be designed, fitted and sold to us by technology alone. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy From Gucci to Chanel, Topshop to Primark - Clothes industry heavyweights rely on fashion forecasters for next season's new look. But advancements in artificial intelligence are about to turn their art into a science. Cognitive computing is now able to identify patterns previously inaccessible to humans. It can simultaneously analyse vast amounts of global data - from social media buzz to political polls - making it possible to accurately spot what's hot and what's not. WGSN, the world's biggest fashion forecaster. now uses AI alongside more traditional methods. A move that could reduce forecasting errors by up to 50%. Trend-spotting mistakes can have far-reaching consequences. H&M recently confessed to a $4.3 billion unsold stock mountain. Industry waste costs both profits and reputation. Technology could make the fashion industry more sustainable. By using machine learning, an AI technique, to match supply with demand unnecessary manufacturing could be limited and fashions environmental footprint reduced. Online retailers are cottoning on. In the next two years 75% of fashion retailers plan to invest in AI. But keeping up with tech giants is going to be tough. Amazon is now developing what's believed to be the world's first AI fashion designer. It plans to use an algorithm that designs clothes by analyzing images and copying popular styles - using them to build completely new designs. This technological makeover could hold huge benefits especially for those who like to shop online. A Japanese company has unveiled the Zozo, a body measurement suit that will ensure the clothes you order fits you perfectly. All meaning our future wardrobes could contain clothes designed for us and sold to us by technology alone.

Fast fashion brands and digital only ultra-fast-fashion operators continue expanding globally, while the majority of consumers still rank price as a top factor in their fashion purchasing decision.

But one of the richest men in the world has made his fortune through the most traditional business you can think about - selling clothes. In fact, in the summer of 2017, the shares of his company soared and for a couple of hours and he held the title of the richest man in the world. But Gates claimed back his position later on the same day. Without any formal education except for the first few years in school, he has built the largest clothing company in the entire world. It all started in Spain. Back then child labor was normal. So Amancio left school at the age of 13 to start working as a delivery boy in a local shirtmaker shop. Where he learned to make clothes by hand. He loved his job and started excelling at it, so much that by the time he was 24, he was appointed as a manager. Not bad for the 1960s, right? Ortega realized that only the wealthy residents could afford their clothes so he started working on his own designs that are more affordable. He started producing pretty similar designs but at a much lower cost targeting the rest of the residents. His strategy work out and he successfully sold all of his designs and used the earnings to open his first factory in 1963 Finally, in 1975, he decided to establish his own brand and named Zara. Zara’s strategy was absolutely simple, sell quality products for a reasonable price so that everyone could afford them. This strategy seems so obvious, why others didn't use it. When Ortega was working in that shirtmaker store. He realized that how the cost of the garments significantly increase when they move from designers to factories to stores. He learned the importance of delivering products directly to consumers without third-party distributors. So Zara started doing everything by itself. This reducing the cost But Ortego’s ambitions didn't stop there, it was time to go international. He established his first store outside Spanish borders in Portugal, in 1988. And a year later In New York. And since then the company has been unstoppable. Ortega realized he can't target all the segments of the market through Zara. So he acquired many different brands such as Pull&Bear, Bershka, Massimo Dutti and so on. And formed them all under a holding company - Inditex. But Zara is the biggest of them, it accounts for over 60% of total sales. Unlike other brands, Zara didn't waste money on advertisements. It knew that as long as there are quality clothes for affordable prices, people are going to buy them, so they kept opening new stores instead. By the year 2000, Zara had stores all around North America and Europe. So it was time to invade Asia and the rest of the world. Inditex has over 7000 stores now. What also sets them apart is that, since everything is done in-house. Zara can design a product and get them into stores in less 2 weeks compare to 6 month which is industry average. Ortega followed just in time production strategy. That means they made their supply chain so effective that they could supply their stores in less than 48 hours. Which means, they don't need to order more than they need and if something is selling too good. They know that they can have it back on the shelves in 48 hours. That provided Zara with absolutely unique advantage. This incredible success story started with a 13-year-old kid who simply had a dream and didn't have any formal education. It seems like nothing is impossible as long as you are patient, dedicated and hard working. But in today’s world with the rise of the internet, the first thing you have to do when you start a project is to register your domain.

What is the future of fashion and where is the fashion industry heading to? What kind of future do fashion pioneers think of and how do they try to change the way of thinking about fashion? A documentary about the future and a new way of approach to fashion. Every year more than 100 billion new garments are produced. A third of that is never sold, worn and shredded or burned. In the global race for the fastest production at the lowest prices, the fashion and clothing industry has developed into a dazzling Fast Fashion system. That system is not only based on exploitation, but also responsible for 10% of global CO2 emissions. How can we change fashion and still enjoy it? Backlight shows five future fashion pioneers who make their industry future-proof by experimenting with new fabrics, reuse and hi-tech design. Their 'fashion of the future' goes far beyond sustainability alone. They also force us to look differently at beauty and the role that clothing plays in our lives. During the Fashion Week in London, the British duo Vin + Omi presents a haute couture collection made with fabrics based on plants and plastic bottles. The Amsterdam label Hacked By is experimenting with the reuse of clothing surpluses, in collaboration with the large fashion chains that produce these surpluses. And the Flemish designer Jasna Rokegem presents the possibility of clothing, which is made every morning by a 3D printer. Or will we all in the future wear that one ultimate piece of clothing that changes with our moods, protects us against bacteria, repairs itself and never needs to be washed? Almost weekly the fast fashion carousel spits out new collections. The production time between the catwalks in Paris, London and Milan and the clothes racks of the big chains such as H & M and Zara is shorter than ever. Fashion has become affordable and accessible to everyone, but we buy too much and the clothing industry pollutes the planet. The surpluses of returned and unsold garments are accumulating. Even African countries do not want the discarded new clothing anymore, because it disrupts internal production. Every second a truck full of new textiles is burnt somewhere. Getting out of this vicious cycle turns out to be difficult for consumers, designers and producers, and still – a difference can be made. Original title: Future fashion With: Vin + Omi (fashion designers), Orsola de Castro (founder Fashion Revolution), Jasna Rokegem (digital designer, inventor and founder Jasna Rok), Otto von Busch (author, teacher at Parsons School of Design, New York) and Francisco van Benthum & Alexander van Slobbe (fashion designers and founders Hacked By).

Let's talk about what's going on in our brains while we're shopping and why it's difficult to change shopping habits. As with anything related to our brains, it's very complex and complicated and a lot is unknown. I'm also obviously not a Psychologist or Neuroscientist so I'm talking about this is a very simplified way, based on the research I've done.

Mindful business: While working for a microfinance firm in Trujillo, Peru, Patrick was introduced to the broken Peruvian footwear industry made up of over 100,000 shoemakers who possess remarkable talent yet lack access to consistent work, fair-wages, and brand access to established international markets. Having had extensive exposure to such potential juxtaposed with a lack of access in other developing countries, Patrick developed a vision to push the fashion industry in a new direction by serving as one of the first fashion brands to deliver a superior yet ethically-produced product to consumers. Patrick is the Co-Founder & CEO of Nisolo. Patrick graduated from the Croft Institute for International Studies and Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College at the University of Mississippi. His experience using business as a force for good has led him across the globe ranging from Kenya and Uganda to Argentina and Peru.

Subscribe for more Hungry Beast: http://bit.ly/HungryBeast Meet Zara: the Spanish company at the forefront of Fast Fashion, where speed and disposability are the new black. Launched in 1975, Zara now has almost 2000 stores in 77 countries. Its parent company, Inditex, turned over $17 billion last year, helping reclusive founder Amancio Ortega -- a railway worker's son -- become the 7th richest man in the world. Zara's HQ is a futuristic building known as "The Cube" in La Coruña, northwestern Spain. From there, staff churn out 30,000 designs a year, near carbon copies of fashion's big names. Lightning-fast, locally-targeted designs are Zara's specialty: when Madonna played three weeks of European concerts in 2001, teenage girls went to her later shows wearing knock-offs of the outfit from her first performance. Zara's 'vertically integrated' business model limits outsourcing, making most of its catwalk copies in-house and ensuring better quality control. When it does use cheap labour, it mostly uses poorer European countries over the developing world. Garments hit shop floors within three weeks of design -- blitzing the industry average of six months. Fashion used to be sold in four seasons. Zara wants you to buy for one-hundred-and-four. New clothes arrive in every store twice a week -- days known by fans as "Z Days" -- and fuel the need to turn over your wardrobe. The brand's global distribution centre, also in Spain, moves 2.5 million items per week. Nothing remains warehoused longer than 72 hours. Clothes are ironed in advance and packed on hangers with security and price tags affixed, saving store staff 'prime selling time'. Records are kept of any clothes tried on but not bought, sent back to Spain along with all cash register data. Customers visit Zara on average six times more often than its competitors, causing rival stores to dread its arrival on their turf. When Zara opened a store in China last year, one industry commentator noted "it just murdered everything around it". And when the doors of Zara's first Australian store opened in Sydney in April, 80% of the stock was snapped up within three minutes. Shoppers might love Zara but fashion's elite are not so happy. One unnamed designer complained "we spend a fortune researching and working up ideas, then Zara comes along and walks off with them for nothing". Zara has achieved global success with almost zero advertising, which its founder calls a "pointless distraction". Zara. Fast, affordable, pre-packaged fashion. A business built on speed, designed for addiction.

Examples include Zara, Forever 21, H&M, Topshop, and many more. The business model attracts vast quantities of consumers, especially of the younger generation. However, the speed of production under fast fashion is only matched by the speed that their products get thrown out and the amount of environmental atrocities they commit. The fashion industry has been cited as the second largest polluter in the world, second only to the oil industry. They are also responsible for 5% of greenhouse gas emissions, equal to the entire country of Russia. Production for clothing is heavily reliant on fossil fuels. Each year, more than 70 million barrels of oil are used to make the world’s polyester fiber. Large amounts of waste are created and disposed of in landfills or incinerators, where they are burned and more harmful gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, are released. Overall, the fast fashion industry as it is creates excessive amounts of greenhouse gases, the leading cause of climate change, with seemingly no remorse. Wouldn’t you like to know what your money is supporting? Here are some details about some of the most common fast fashion retailers. Zara, a Spanish clothing brand owned by Inditex, the world’s largest fashion retailer, provides extremely low cost and on trend clothing modeled after some of the world’s most expensive brands. Other than its atrocious labor violations, including the employment of underage Syrian refugees, the company seems to have little regard for its impact on the environment. The Changing Markets Foundation published a report finding that four factories Zara purchases from pollute local waterways through the production of viscose. For the second fast fashion brand, Forever 21, research is a little harder. It is impossible to find any solid facts about the environmental policies of Forever 21, because they are not at all transparent about internal production or environmental policies. However, the Ethical Fashion Report of 2017 gave the company a D+ rating, and they are one of the few companies to refuse to sign the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Safety that would regulate their factories against fire hazards. While H&M has made barebones initiatives recently, such as creating a pricey line of clothing made from recycled fabrics, they have a long way to come before reaching sustainability. H&M follows the same practices as all other fast-fashion models, and it is the second largest clothing producer behind Inditex, the owner of Zara. In order to transport such mass amounts of apparel, H&M is a top fossil fuel expeditor. If you don’t like what you’ve heard so far in this video, you’re not alone. Here are some solutions to help you limit your personal contributions to the industry. Luckily, there are other options to counter the environmental malice committed by fast-fashion brands. Thrift shopping is a great way to shop sustainably, while also doing so at an affordable price. In most areas, thrift stores are easily accessible and offer a large variety of clothing options. In addition to this, online thrifting stores such as Mercari, ThredUp, and Poshmark also offer these same clothing resale services if you are unable to find a thrift store near you. You can also contribute towards clean shopping practices by donating any used clothing to these same stores. Another alternative to fast-fashion is to shop at sustainable retailers. Many brands have devoted their business to lessen the impact of the clothing industry, and these brands exist at all price levels. Some brands we suggest are Reformation, Everlane, Thought Clothing, and Alternative Apparel. The High Cost urges you to make the switch before it’s too late. To learn more about the fast-fashion industry and what you can do to stop its effects, join our clothing revolution @TheHighCost.

H&M outsources most its labor overseas to countries like Bangladesh, where the working conditions are difficult to oversee. Our ability to resist the low prices is difficult, thanks to our brain chemistry. Combine trendy clothes and cheap prices, and you have a promising business model. But, what are the consequences?

The global fashion discount industry has made high-priced chic available on the cheap. But some argue that we’re paying in other ways for all those $15 shoes and $5 T-shirts. After surveying her own wardrobe, journalist Elizabeth L. Cline set out to uncover the true cost of discount retail and found horrific labor conditions, environmental devastation, and the demise of local fashion economies. Now she’s shooting a documentary exploring the same themes as her book, "Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion." Join Cline for a frank talk about fast fashion while exploring ways to shop ethically and sustainably.

In today′s "Industry Insight"- we′re going to be talking about fast-fashion brands. Officially called S.P.A brands,... Korean companies are considered late-comers to the industry. But that hasn′t tamped down their big aspirations. Connie Lee has more on this. Connie- Simply put, SPA brands sell trendy items at competitive prices. Currently, these S.P.A brands... or fast-fashion brands... here in Korea... make up about 8 percent of the fashion industry,... but... with the potential to grow even more. // The top three biggest SPA brands... are UNIQLO, ZARA AND HM... and all of them saw record-breaking sales last year. Data shows that the total sales of the top three brands last year topped 1-trillion won... or more than 980-million U.S. dollars. That′s up nearly 31 percent... from the year before. But despite the TIGHT competition,...the LOCAL S.P.A. brands are now just fighting among one another they′re also trying to expand globally. Here′s a closer look. They are the so-called "fast-fashion" brands, or S.P.A. brands, easily seen in Seoul′s busy shopping districts. Over the past couple of years in Korea, there′s been a growing demand for these... SPA brands with both foreign and domestic firms flooding the streets, here in Korea. "I like these kinds of brands because their prices are reasonable, and they have styles that are liked by most people." SPA, short for "specialty retailer of private label apparel"... had a market worth of about 500-billion won in the Korean market, back in 2008,... but has since grown to about 3-trillion won... or about 2-point-8 billion U.S. dollars in 2013. "The SPA brands in Korea are changing the paradigm of the fashion industry in Korea. Before we saw brands more focused on their brand image but now it′s about the retail store′s image and how to meet the exact demands of its customers." SPA brands do it all from design to manufacturing and retailing thus, prices are lower and new items can be produced at a faster rate. "For many of these SPA brand retail stores, there are new items that hit the racks almost weekly. And at this store, new products are apparently delivered every day." Currently, the three biggest SPA brands in Korea are not homemade..... They′re Japan′s Uniqlo,... one of the first SPA brands to enter Korea in 2005,... Spain′s Zara and Sweden′s HM. The local brands, which are latecomers to the SPA world, however, are not afraid to join in on the competition. Retail conglomerate, E-Land Group, which introduced Korea′s first SPA brand called Spao in 2009,... currently has more than 10 such brands under its belt. Their aim is global expansion first, by conquering Asia. "We found success with our first stores abroad in China and Japan. So we now plan to increase the number of our SPA brand stores in China to 50 next year. / We have an edge over our foreign competitors because we design and produce according to the specific tastes of our Asian consumers." And back
