Hey Bellah Bloggers!
I have some more fashion news for you today!
Everyone knows that fashion is expesnive, un-recyable, unsustainable, and actually bad for the enviornment. (Trust me when I say that being fabulous has many consequences on our environment).
But there has been a turn in the fashion tides. Due to consumers outrage for the harmful and unsustainable fashion, the fashion industry is trying to undergo consruction to become more eco-friendly.
As stated in a previous blog post, many large brands and designer companies have began to switch their fabrics and their manufactoring process. This is great for the consumers, the labels, and the environment. Talk about a WIN a WIN!
Traditional Fashion manfufactotring and fabrics are seen as cruel and harmful by the public eye. But it is the way that the Fashion World has been doing things since it began. Ethics have always been questioned where fashion is related.
Ancient Times, silk worms and nature were used in the making of silk, fabrics, dyes, and many other resources that we have improved on as technology has advanced. Granted, not too long ago animal testing, real fur and animal hides, along with many other unethical and cruel measures were used in high couture fashion houses (including child labor). People did not see this as unethical until a loud enough voices was heard, and consumers changed their buying and impersonating fashion habits.
Because consumers made a huge deal about the horrible treatment of animals and child labor in order to have cosmetics and fashionable cloths, the fashion world changed to using fo-fur and other non-harmful alternatives to animals.
Once again, the fashion world is catering to the whims of its consumers and using ethical measure and steps in order to stay on top of the Fashion World, and who could be mad with that?
With the Fashion World and the Normal Societal World seeing eye to eye on using ethical measure for fashion and many other consumer products, the world might just turn out to be a better place….at least for us Fashionistas!
