Daily fashion and style blog - Fashion156 Fashion156.com's Weekly 'We Love' List This week on our Love List we share the artwork that's inspiring us, the accessories we can't wait to get our hands on and the sights and sounds we're loving right now.

25 Shocking Fashion Industry Statistics Flickr/uair01/CC BY 2.0 There are over 7 billion people on this planet. 7 billion! If you count one number a second without stopping until you reach a billion, you’d be counting for 31 years, 259 days, 1 hours, 46 minutes, and 40 seconds. That’s how much a billion is. If each person owned only one pair of pants, one shirt, and one jacket, that would be 21 billion articles of clothing. If you were to count each of those, one per second, it would take nearly 672 years. Given that there are so many of us, and clothes are one of the three basic needs, the statistics surrounding the textile and fashion industry are nothing short of staggering.

While certain designers of the past are remembered today for their ingenuity or are attributed with the "invention" of a particular garment, such as Mary Quant and the miniskirt, scores of designers--like Redfern, Lucile or Mainbocher--who were widely influential in their time have seemingly been forgotten. The task of resurrecting these legacies thus falls upon the fashion historian, so sit back for a mini fashion history lesson of 10 fashion designers you've probably never heard of but should definitely know.
