Exploring a more sustainable future for fashion week at the Fashion for Good Museum

Although niche happenings two centuries ago, over the decades, fashion weeks have evolved to become must-see events followed by a huge number of people thanks to their openness to embracing digital technology. This has been amplified by the pandemic, and by the emergence of the metaverse. These days, fashion moves from the catwalk to our wardrobes in one short step, making fashion weeks more influential than ever, despite their environmental impact.With this in mind, the Fashion for Good Museum is staging an exhibition entitled “Fashion Week: A New Era,” running until October, which looks at the evolution of fashion weeks and their different forms, from the intimate salons of the 19th century to the present day — and even beyond, since this show is also about the fashion weeks of the f…

H&M becomes first fashion retailer to use Circulose

The material is produced by re:newcell, a company that H&M as a group has supported since its inception. It uses discarded textiles and is able to “replace forest raw material, in commercial quantities, without compromising on the quality”. And the whole process that recycles the cotton and viscose fibres adds further to the circularity of Circulose because it uses a closed loop system for water and chemicals powered by renewable energy.คำพูดจาก สล็อตเว็บตรง

Indian apparel makers try on ethical supply chains for size

A symbol of India’s freedom struggle, handloom attire was once regarded as fit only for politicians and villagers.It is now seeing a revival, with demand growing for sustainable and ethical fashion, even as mass-market clothing still dominates malls and pavement stalls.

“There’s a greater desire among the youth and the middle class, who are frustrated with dirty politics and crooked companies, for something better,” said Arvind Singhal, chief executive of retail consultancy Technopak Advisors.”Having a greater sensitivity to people and the environment is ‘in’, and people are even willing to pay a small premium for what they perceive to be ethical and responsible,” he said.India is among the biggest manufacturers of textiles and apparel in the world, supplying leading international…

China’s Q3 GDP growth, September activity show economic recovery gaining traction

Rapidly weakening growth in the world’s second-biggest economy since the second quarter prompted authorities to step up their support steps, with Wednesday’s batch of data indicating the stimulus is starting to gain traction although a property crisis and other headwinds continue to pose risks to the outlook.Gross domestic product (GDP) grew 4.9% in July-September from the year earlier, data released by the National Bureau of Statistics showed, versus analysts’ expectations in a Reuters poll for a 4.4% increase but slower than the 6.3% expansion in the second quarter.

Luxury industry to bounce back in 2017

This acceleration is thanks, in large part, to Chinese consumers, whose domination of market demand continues to grow. China currently accounts for 31% of total demand, but this figure should increase to 34% by 2020, with more than 60% spending outside of China. This has also been decisive, in addition to the return of European consumers, who account for 19% of the market, according to Deutsche Bank’s study. Luxury consumers have been tempted by more attractive products and standardized prices. Geographically, major spending on luxury products occurs in Europe (33%), followed by the Americas (32%) and China (13%). 

Furthermore, more than half of demand is generated by tourism, a real market driver, with region-dependent variations: 58% in Europe, 55% in Asia, more than 20% in th…

Kendall and Kylie Jenner brand responds to claims that it did not pay garment workers

The allegations began with an article from Remake, a nonprofit dedicated to creating an ethical fashion industry. In the article, Remake noted that the Kendall + Kylie Label was listed as an “affiliated label” on the website of apparel company Global Brands Group (GBG) until June 23 (originally, Remake claimed the brand was “owned” by GBG).According to Remake, GBG “refused to pay its garment suppliers for orders produced in February and March following a drop in sales caused by the coronavirus pandemic,” leaving factory workers “starving around the world.”

Pureplays and smartphones are biggest e-tail winners in worst October ever

On the plus side, the 6.2% rise was a slightly more positive result than the rolling averages for the last three, six and 12 months (+5%, +4.5%, and +5.1% respectively). But the increase was well below some of the much more impressive rises that we’ve become used to from the online channel in previous years. There were pockets of strength, however. For instance, pureplay online retailers saw sales growth three times that of their multichannel rivals with a 12.4% increase compared to 4.3% for the multichannel players.
