Abstract

The fashion industry is influential all around the world. Fashion is a way that people can express themselves, be creative, and connect with people. Many people also rely on fashion to make a living, whether it be working in a retail store, a corporate office, or a factory. Everyone across the supply chain is affected by fashion, from cotton farmers to everyday shoppers. In an industry full of positives, it can be difficult to spot flaws at the surface level. Like most industries, fashion is a business, focused primarily on making money. While this is good for corporations, it is extremely harmful to the environment and underpaid workers. The fast fashion business model, though profitable and easy for corporations, is very harmful to the world by negatively affecting the environment and many people’s quality of life.
