How can the fashion industry grow and become better?
The fashion industry can grow and become better by being more inclusive, becoming sustainable, and allowing creative and innovative ideas to take form. For a very long time, this industry has been white and rich-dominated, with very little diversity. For it to grow it has to become an inclusive industry where people of all ethnicities, shapes, genders, and economic backgrounds have a place to succeed. The fashion industry is also the second biggest polluter on the planet. Fast-fashion is killing the Earth. According to the EPA, 13 million textiles are trashed each year in the USA alone. Only 15% of this is donated or recycled. Manufacturing the clothes is also damaging. Dyeing, printing, and bleachings are energy and chemical-intensive stages, as well as cotton production, which is one of the most water-intensive crops – responsible for 2.6 percent of global water use. In order for the fashion industry to become better for all of us, it has to become a sustainable industry. Finally, the fashion industry is full of recycled ideas, recurring trends, and very little creativity just to conform to a standard for selling more. We need new and fresh ideas, inspiration and designs for the industry to continue growing and adapting to the new generations.
