Now more than ever, “fast fashion” and the apparel industry are on a collision course with the growing need for sustainability. Do we really need the latest runway items to be available in store the following week? Is it time to evaluate the role fashion in contributing to global waste and global warming? What will the industry look like in a post-Pandemic world?
In this final unit, we will look at fashion through the lens of sustainability and environmental impact. Please view the two videos and read the three articles provided below. The writing assignment is at the very bottom of the page.
