Introduction to Fast Fashion

My name is Lyndsie, and YES, I am a shopaholic!

It sound so dramatic, but it’s true. Living by the infamous quote by Carrie Bradshaw “I like my money where I can see it… hanging in my closet”,I am constantly spending my money on clothing items, in an attempt to keep up with the latest fashion trends.

d14e9e15064c28027e5c7346a8176841Living the typical university student stereotype, I have minimal funds available, which is extremely upsetting when I need to buy the latest fashion piece that I definitely cannot afford. I therefore love a good bargain and am persistently on the hunt for more items of clothing for less money.

Most of the time I’m in denial, and I tell myself “You’ll wear it all the time, it’s fine, just buy it, its super cheap anyway”. But in reality I know that’s a lie. Because it’s cheap I won’t value it as much, and the chances of me wearing this item more than once is very slim. If it’s not actually needed, then it’s not a saving.

I’ve never actually analysed the origins of where my clothes were coming from, nor have I ever pondered who had personally made them. I began to read the tags on my clothes “Made In China”, “Made In Bangladesh”, Made In Turkey”, the list is extensive. This opened my eyes to the concept of FAST FASHION.
