First of all, long time no see blogging world! Let's see if I can get back into you. (Wait a sec, that sounds a little strangely-worded … oh well.) Today I'm going to talk about the app Depop. It’s basically a buying and selling app. At first it was likened to an online car boot sale or flea market, but is now shown to have more of an Etsy-like appeal.

One thing I rather enjoyed from browsing all these items is that I found a lot of fashion bloggers that I hadn’t been aware of before and some cute little online shops for handmade clothes and accessories. Okay, let’s talk about it from both points of view, as a buyer and a seller: Buying (Image from here.) When buying some sellers will allow you to “instabuy” which is pretty straightforward. My First Buy – The Ups and Downs (Image from here.) So far I’ve only purchased one item on there, a Drop Dead t-shirt (the Jurassic Park one).

Panish retail giant Zara has opened a new flagship store at the eastern end of Oxford Street, bringing its total number of stores on the street to a record-breaking five. At 4,500sq m, it’s also one of the largest Zara stores in the UK and carries the complete men’s, women’s and kidswear collections across four floors. The store design of the new space aims to reflect the younger, more dynamic area around Tottenham Court Road, using industrial lighting, exposed ceilings and brushed concrete walls.

Space between clothing rails reveals the building’s glass exterior, designed to connect the store with the street outside. Spotlighting and a neutral backdrop help the product to take centre stage, which is displayed in the retailer’s signature outfit merchandising concepts. The new store is also fully sustainable, with 30% less energy consumption than a conventional store. The Hidden Cost of Fast Fashion: Worker Safety.

Shoppers have become accustomed to the steady stream of colorful clothing that so-called fast-fashion apparel chains churn out. Rather than launching lines only at the beginning of each season, chains such as Inditex’s Zara and Hennes & Mauritz’s H&M introduce styles as often as every two weeks. The constant replenishment keeps fashion-conscious customers coming back for the generally low-priced goods. But worker rights advocates say fast fashion has another, darker cost: Demands for constant product turns may be putting workers’ lives at risk in developing nations such as Bangladesh, which suffered two fatal garment factory fires in as many months.

Apparel sold by Spain’s Inditex, the world’s largest apparel company and a pioneer of faster fashion cycles, was found at a factory that caught fire on Jan. 26, killing at least seven people. More than 100 were killed on Nov. 24 at another Bangladeshi plant producing garments for companies including Sears Holdings and Wal-Mart Stores. Fast Fashion Brand Alternatives - Ethical Sustainable.

Introduction To The Fast Paced Life Of The Fashion Production Cycle. The least fashionable aspects of the fashion industry are, not surprisingly, production and manufacturing, i.e., the fashion production cycle.

This is something you must understand in full before you even consider starting your own brand. To understand this concept, let’s start at the very beginning. Why Is It Called Fast Fashion? Once upon a time, the fashion production cycle — which includes the designing, manufacturing and distribution of clothes — used to take three stable months. As globalization and competition skyrocketed, these three months slowly but surely dropped to just two weeks. This drastic change occurred because the world became more connected. Think of how it used to take weeks for people to communicate with one another across state lines. This of course means that exciting, new designs reach consumers much quicker than ever before. What Exactly Is Fashion Production? As you can tell, production plays a huge role toward the success or failure of a fashion brand.

Op-Ed: Don't Let the Rising Price of Fast Fashion Fool You. Fast fashion represents a polarizing section of the fashion industry most often characterized by its speed to market, on-trend offerings, low prices and questionable ethics. It has been the subject of debate, the object of competition, and above all else, the one part of the industry that shows no signs of slowing down. Amongst all of the debates and think pieces dedicated to this portion of fashion, one thing is clear: the fast fashion business is booming.

Inditex, the parent company to fast fashion giant, Zara, is the world’s largest fashion group and its founding chairman, Amancio Ortega Gaona, is the world’s second richest man. Fast fashion has no shortage of detractors, though. There are those who look at the rampant labor abuses, overflowing landfills, and constant intellectual property infringement and wonder how anyone can put their money towards that. The Western world was outraged by these images and the unsatisfying response. The future of fast fashion. The Rise of Fast Fashion | InterActive. Nowhere is the trait of instant gratification more evident than in contemporary culture and the fashion industry. In previous years, consumers were willing to purchase merchandise from major fashion labels for the brand name and guaranteed quality.

However, today’s consumers desire the same latest fashions but are not willing to pay the major price tag because they do not hold quality in the same high regard. With this willingness to purchase replicas and items of a lower standard, the chief operators of fashion retail saw an opportunity in the market. In an effort to match customer desires, the concept of ‘fast fashion’ was born. The concept was coined in fashion retail to describe the quick turnover of designs that move from the catwalk to current fashion trends and became extremely popular in the early 2000s. Retailers aimed to increase profit by focusing on key elements of the supply chain with an emphasis on increased manufacturing speed at a low price. The benchmark: Zara. Niche Markets and Mass Markets | Business. For example, in the confectionery market, a dominant segment would be the plain chocolate bar.

Over 90% of the sales in this segment are made by three dominant producers – Cadbury's, Nestle and Mars. However, there are many small, specialist niche segments (e.g. luxury, organic or fair-trade chocolate). Niche marketing can be defined as: Where a business targets a smaller segment of a larger market, where customers have specific needs and wants Targeting a product or service at a niche segment has several advantages for a business (particularly a small business): Less competition – the firm is a "big fish in a small pond" Clear focus - target particular customers (often easier to find and reach too) Builds up specialist skill and knowledge = market expertise Can often charge a higher price – customers are prepared to pay for expertise Profit margins often higher Customers tend to be more loyal The main disadvantages of marketing to a niche include:

Missguided accused of 'cashing in' on Brangelina's divorce. An online fashion retailer has been accused of 'cashing in' on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's split after selling t-shirts with the slogans Team Brad and Team Angelina.
