Fast Fashion - Can It Be Ethical?

It is a business model of disposable clothing. This is extremely profitable for big brands and attractively affordable to consumers, but it is also unsustainable and costly to people and the planet. What are the five recent arrivals to Australia – H&M, Zara, Uniqlo, Topshop and Forever 21 – doing to change their unflattering reputation for unsustainable fashion? The problem. Missguided credits fast UK sourcing for record growth. Missguided’s rapid sourcing model is central to its record profit and revenue growth, with over half of the etailer’s collections supplied by UK factories, according to chief financial officer Paul Masters.

“Almost all of the ranges are designed in-house and between 50% and 60% comes from UK factories,” he said, as the Manchester-based company reported EBITDA increased six-fold from £900,000 to £5.5m for the year to March 31. The young fashion etailer, which introduces an average of 250 new items online each week, increased revenue by 69% to £86m during the same period. “We have an established base in the UK, which is a real benefit to us, and a very fast sourcing model from our suppliers in China and the Far East. We can turn things round from conception of design to having it up on the site within a matter of weeks,” said Masters.

The youth fashionwear market is divided into three key market sectors: clothing, footwear and clothing accessories, for both male and female consumers, aged between 13 and 24 years old. Key Note estimates that the value of the market increased by 8.9% in 2014. Teenage bloggers and ‘vloggers’ are having a growing influence on the fashion choices of younger consumers, with the conversational style of such blogs widely accepted as being a more honest review than a brand campaign or industry magazine. A string of collaborations between high-end designers and high-street youth fashion retailers has sprung up in the last few years, proving popular among young consumers who lack the available finances for the designer’s mainline range. Youth Fashionwear. This Key Note Market Report analyses the UK consumer market for youth fashionwear, covering both the male and female fashion offerings for the 13 to 24 year-old age group.

Véronique Laury Véronique Laury has taken the helm of Kingfisher this year, bringing the total number of female chief executives of FTSE 100 companies to five. She has taken over from Sir Ian Cheshire, who is leaving the business after 16 years, including seven as chief executive, to make way for the “next phase of Kingfisher’s evolution”.
