The affordability of clothing coupled with #ootd culture leads many of us to think we need a new outfit whenever we leave our homes. And when it comes to fast fashion, we all plead guilty to it one way or another – either by buying Zara’s polka dot dress last summer or copping Mango’s Bottega Veneta inspired clutch bag.

The thrill we get after finding a cheap dress or dupe of a designer piece is undeniably problematic. And we needn’t look far to know that the price tag of many of our fashion buys frequently does not reflect the item’s true cost.

The ethical and environmental issues surrounding the fashion industry are no secret and have been brought to light in the past few years, namely after the Rana Plaza garment factory collapse in Bangladesh in 2013. Around a third of the 3,122 workers died and the

Congratulations are due to Emma Watson on her new side hustle. The activist and Little Women star is the newest appointee to Kering’s board of directors. She’ll chair the luxury conglomerate’s sustainability committee, guiding conversations that will affect Kering brands including Gucci, Saint Laurent and Bottega Veneta. 

Watson is one of three new appointees; the others are Jean Liu, president of Didi Chuxing, often described as China’s Uber; and Tidjane Thiam, a former Credit Suisse boss.

Candace Owens mocks Harry Styles for wearing a dress. Did she forget about Jesus?

The presidential election might be over, but Trump surrogates aren’t done playing the man card to energize their base. After attacking President-elect Joe Biden for the size of his mask and implying that protecting others made him less of a man, they’ve moved on to being provoked by another piece of cloth: a dress.

Shockingly, men don’t come out of utero sporting a nifty pair of trousers or cargo shorts.

After pop icon Harry Styles posed on the cover of Vogue wearing a ball gown, conservative radio host and Trump endorser Erick Erickson tweeted: “Biden gets elected by promising a return to normal. Then the left goes all in on men in dresses.”
