Which brands are “fast fashion”? How to tell (in 4 points) ǀ Justine Leconte
 
06:51
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?

How Zara Took Over The Industry Using Fast Fashion
 
04:02
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?

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.

Instagram: https://goo.gl/vzBDdg Facebook: https://goo.gl/DZmAeM Twitter: https://goo.gl/6gvG4T #Business #Fashion When we think at some of the greatest companies in the world, we think of examples such as Google, Amazon and so on. 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.

The Cost of Fast Fashion
 
09:45
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.

Why it's SO HARD to Stop Buying Fast Fashion | Psychology of Shopping
 
06:40
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.

Where the future of fashion is headed - VPRO documentary
 
50:15
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).

The future of fashion | The Economist
 
02:24
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’s Effect on People, The Planet, & You | Patrick Woodyard | TEDxUniversityofMississippi
 
18:03
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.

Why outlet stores aren’t as good a deal as they seem
 
02:45
Here's the secret they don't want you to know. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO Outlet stores began in the 1930s as a place for excess and damaged goods to be sold employees. As outlet stores grew they began offering the same goods to non-employees. Today, shoppers believe they can purchase excess designer clothes from last season at a good price in outlet stores like Nordstrom Rack or Saks OFF 5TH. Wrong. The little-known truth about outlet stores is that most of their merchandise was actually made to sell only at outlets. Some brands—including Kate Spade New York, Michael Kors, Gap, Banana Republic— are being sued for their misleading retail price comparison on the merchandise tag.

Retailers CLOSING in 2019!
 
11:16
The shopping landscape has changed in the recent decade. The “Retail Apocalypse” began in 2010 and since then many North American retail stores have struggled to stay above water. Over 12,000 physical stores are gone. Here are some of the companies that couldn’t survive the catastrophe. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr Watch our "Evidence That Aliens HAVE Visited Earth " video here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL227eb9FSI Watch our "CRAZY Ideas That Actually Worked!" video here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0n2wEAiOcg Watch our UNBELIEVABLE Items Found After Tsunamis !" video here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNNLwdBI7Gk 9. Family Dollar In 2015, Dollar Tree bought the Family Dollar chain for $8.5 million, which. Last year, Dollar Tree already axed 120 locations. As of now, 390 more Family Dollar locations will close, and 200 more will be converted into Dollar Tree stores. The thousand remaining stores are scheduled for renovations and will include alcohol sections and Dollar Tree merchandise. Some people believe that Dollar Tree should have never bought Family Dollar because the two companies were too different. However, Dollar Tree earned nearly $22 billion last year, so maybe something’s going right. 8. The Children’s Place Where are parents of small children going to buy clothes now that Gymboree and The Children’s Place are going out of business? The retailer plans to close 300 stores by 2020. So far, they have about 100 more to go before they reach that goal. Currently, they have 988 locations, though they began their downsizing initiative back in 2013. Luckily, The Children’s Place isn’t in deep water when it comes to losing sales. If anything, their sales are steady, but they still want to cut costs to remain profitable. 7. Chico’s Chico’s used to rule the market when it came to selling clothes to the middle-aged women. Chico’s also owns similar brands like Soma and White House Black Market, which have also seen a decrease in sales. At the start of January 2019, Chico’s said they were closing 250 stores in the next three years. They explained they wanted to have a more prominent presence online and do away with the more out-dated aspects of the brand. 6. J. Crew Preppy fashions have seen a dip in popularity in the past decade. If you look back to the 2000s, a preppy clothing brand like J. Crew was at the top of the profit charts. Now? Not so much. J. Crew has closed six stores throughout the US for 2019. That doesn’t seem like a huge loss, but they already shuttered 50 stores last year. J. Crew’s CEO Jim Brett stepped down in 2018, and now four new executives are trying to lead J. Crew back to the top. At least the J.Crew-owned brand, Madewell, is still trending. 5. Ascena Retail Group Ascena Retail Group owns brands like Lane Bryant, Ann Taylor, and Justice. These places adhere to different demographics of females, yet Ascena can’t seem to make their business work as well as they want. They own almost 5,000 apparel stores in the US, making it one of the most spread-out companies on this list. In 2017, the retail group planned to close up to 667 stores for the next 2 years. As of now, Ascena closed 31 stores and is on track to close more. 4. Charlotte Russe Charlotte Russe is like Forever21 but not as well-received. This fast-fashion chain was founded in the 70s. As of March, they will liquidate all of their stores. Earlier this year, Charlotte Russe filed for bankruptcy and only wanted to close 94 of its 512 stores. Their strategy was to use bankruptcy as a way to eliminate their debts and hope another company would buy them to stay in business. However, liquidating company, SB360 Capital Partners won Charlotte Russe in a bankruptcy court auction for $160 million and prompted for the company to shut down. 3. Gap Remember the days when shopping at Gap was all the rage? However, the youth is now opting for more affordable, on-trend stores like H&M and Forever 21. The Gap is closing their stores little by little and in the next two years have the intent to close up to 230. It’s third-quarter earnings report showed profits declining at 7%. On January 20, 2019, they shuttered their New York flagship store. 2. Payless ShoeSource Payless served as a supplier of trendy footwear that was reasonably priced. They were famous for their BOGO (buy one, get one) deals, which allowed you to bring home two pairs of shoes for the price of one or one and a half. We must bid Payless goodbye since they could not compete with cheaper online stores. In the past couple of years, Payless has gradually been shuttering stores. In February, they said they were going to close the 2,100 remaining locations in the US and Puerto Rico. 1...

The changing face of fashion | The Economist
 
01:55
The numbers behind haute couture are staggering, with up to 35% of consumers buying their clothes based on trends recommended by social media. Here's how the industry is cutting its cloth today. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 The fashion industry has annual revenues of more than three trillion dollars and accounts for 2% of total global manufacturing. China is a global leader, exporting over 36% of the world's garments. Its clothing industry has an export value of 175 billion dollars annually but competition is increasing, particularly from some of its neighbours in Asia. Bangladesh is the second largest global exporter of clothing after China - closely followed by Vietnam. But it's not just the production of fashion that is changing; social media has begun to influence consumer decisions when buying clothing. Up to 35% of consumers buy their clothes based on trends recommended by social networks. Fashion brands now live stream their once exclusive fashion shows to the public, whilst high street brands copy haute couture style and get them to market before the designers do. Business is booming for these big fast fashion brands. Zara saw their share of the fashion retail market more than double in the decade from 2004 - but fast fashion creates its own problems as consumers clear out their wardrobes more regularly. Americans threw away 11.1 million tonnes of clothes and shoes in 2013. That amounts to over 4% of the country's rubbish - more than double the level in 1990. Daily Watch: mind-stretching short films every day of the working week.

How these kids are cutting down on clothing waste (Marketplace)

Students at Wismer Public School in Markham, Ont., wanted to find solutions to fast fashion and the toll it’s taking on the environment. After watching Marketplace’s investigation, they decided to hold a clothing “shwap” to cut back on waste. »»» Subscribe to CBC News to watch more videos: http://bit.ly/1RreYWS Connect with CBC News Online: For breaking news, video, audio and in-depth coverage: http://bit.ly/1Z0m6iX Find CBC News on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1WjG36m Follow CBC News on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1sA5P9H For breaking news on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1WjDyks Follow CBC News on Instagram: http://bit.ly/1Z0iE7O Download the CBC News app for iOS: http://apple.co/25mpsUz Download the CBC News app for Android: http://bit.ly/1XxuozZ »»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»»» For more than 75 years, CBC News has been the source Canadians turn to, to keep them informed about their communities, their country and their world.

The Pulse:Christmas Special: textile waste caused by "fast fashion" & organ donations in Hong Kong
 
21:35
Hello and welcome to The Pulse and Merry Christmas, if indeed you are celebrating this festival which, for Christians, marks the birth of Christ. More generally speaking it’s time to celebrate, hopefully, quality time with families and friends, and the joys of excessive consumption. Over the past few years, The Pulse has looked at some ideas for a more environmentally-friendly Christmas. This year is no exception. One way or another, it’s a season that can generate quite a lot of waste. Fashion, for one thing, is all about change and keeping up with the latest trends. So-called “fast fashion”, in which designs move from catwalk to retail to hit the trend particularly quickly, accelerates this process. It’s not surprising then that some local organisations have noticed that clothes form an increasingly large proportion of the stuff we throw away. Christians, humanists, atheists, freethinkers, not to mention followers of other religions, all have different interpretations of Christmas. It’s widely believed that the celebration of Christ’s birth around the winter solstice had more to do with the church latching onto pagan traditions than with an actual birth date. But whatever the origins, many people see this as the season to give. In October, 19-year-old Jamella Lo passed away from a lung infection after waiting two weeks for a double-lung transplant. That case highlighted the very low rate of organ donation in Hong Kong. At any one time, up to 2,000 patients are waiting for organ transplants here. Of the 170,000 registered donors, around half do not have their family members’ support. There are only around 45 successful transplants here each year, and often the problem is not technical but societal.

Struggling Teen Retailers Continue to Lose Customers to Fast Fashion
 
01:45
Struggling teen retailers had more bad news to share this week, with Wet Seal announcing massive store closings and layoffs and Body Central revealing it has defaulted on its debt. Wet Seal said it is closing 338 stores after it was unsuccessful in obtaining concessions from its landlords, the troubled company said Wednesday morning. The announcement follows a Jan. 2 revelation by the mall-based chain that it had received a notice of default from Hudson Bay Master Fund Ltd., the holder of its senior convertible note. It has a forbearance agreement with the debt holder until Jan. 12. Body Central, meanwhile, announced on Wednesday that it will explore its strategic and financial alternatives, including a bankruptcy filing, after defaulting on its debt. On Jan. 6, the Jacksonville, Fla.-based retailer received a notice of default from holders of $18 million in second-lien notes. The central challenge for these aging retailers is competition from fast fashion behemoths such as H&M and Zara.

Key Facts: The Global Fast Fashion Market

Thanks to positive developments in China and Europe, the global fashion market is set to have a growth of 2.2% to reach US $1.7 trillion in 2018. 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. These two trends are effectively fueling the industry through strong volume sales and low prices.

Will Artificial Intelligence Replace Fashion Designers? [Amazon, Stitch Fix, Myntra]
 
07:12
Every time I visit any Fashion events, this has been one of the topics that often come up. Can Artificial Intelligence AI replace fashion designers? Fashion designer thinks it can not but tech folks say it can be done. So I started researching into what has been done and found 3 great examples for you. I want to give you a glimpse of what Amazon, Stitch Fix, and Myntra have been doing and using AI to design clothes. *************** Amazon: AI fashion designer *************** The effort points to ways in which Amazon and other companies could try to improve the tracking of trends in other areas of retail—making recommendations based on products popping up in social-media posts, for instance. And it could help the company expand its clothing business * “There’s been a whole move from companies like Amazon trying to understand how fashion develops in the world,” says Kavita Bala, a professor at Cornell University who took part in a workshop on machine learning and fashion organized by Amazon last week. A number of forward-thinking retailers are already using social networks like Instagram and Pinterest to track the latest fashion trends and react quickly. An Amazon team at Lab126, a research center based in San Francisco, has developed an algorithm that learns about a particular style of fashion from images, and can then generate new items in similar styles from scratch—essentially, a simple AI fashion designer. This work uses a cutting-edge tool called a generative adversarial network, or GAN. It consists of two deep neural networks operating in tandem to learn efficiently from raw data. The GAN internalizes the properties of a particular style simply by looking at lots of examples, and it can then apply that style to an existing item of clothing. *************** Stitch Fix *************** The in-house brand of subscription fashion startup Stitch Fix, Hybrid Designs employs a data science team that works with the company’s order data to predict which clothes customers will want to wear. The team identifies viable gaps in the company’s inventory—clothes that people would buy but a designer hasn’t made yet, says Stitch Fix chief algorithm officer Eric Colson. It works like this: A collection of three algorithms generate a starting point. The first algorithm picks three “parents,” recommended pieces of clothing that could be either combined or used as a template for a new piece. The second suggests three different attributes that have been shown to complement the parents’ style—maybe a different neckline or sleeves. And the third throws in a little bit of randomness, a suggestion that isn’t typical for the previously suggested style but might be interesting. Together, these algorithms search through a space of 30 trillion potential combinations of, for example, blouse attributes, to ultimately give just nine suggestions. *************** Myntra - Moda Rapido *************** Algorithms that would get their machines to produce images of T-shirts based on the discovered favorable attributes. It turned out that one category of the machine-created designs outsold the comparable category in each of the other 12 private brands owned by Myntra. Some of the other machine-created designs sold poorly, but the company knew they were onto something really big. “The core of the Rapid idea was to do fast fashion in an intelligent way, given that we have both a tech and a fashion DNA,” said Kenghe. “In the initial phase of the project, there was less machine and more designer-input. Over a period of time, there’s been more machine and less supervision.” Here&Now & Moda Rapido: By September, Moda Rapido and Here&Now were together bringing in sales of Rs12-13 crore every month, making them among the top 15 brands at Myntra. The two contribute 12.5% of Myntra’s private brand's sales, said, Narayanan. Moda Rapido and Here&Now are Myntra’s most profitable brands, **************** Other Videos You Might Like: **************** 13 Areas Artificial Intelligence will affect Fashion Industry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9Lp51oiCTo What is Artificial Intelligence?

Fast Fashion with Elizabeth Cline
 
50:10
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.
