Innovative culture and fast fashion
World now has been changed due to the new technology. New technology made our life easier and everything has been speed up. Our new culture of capitalism along with massive production created consumerism. Fast fashion is the best example of this consumerism. Fast fashion creates many problems include lost of craftsmanship and environmental issues.
My major is menswear fashion design and recently I am learning about the Bespoke tailoring technique and it is one of craftsmanship alive today. Due to the fast fashion, lot of special craftsmanship is disappearing and it is important to balanced out with new technology and the craftsmanship.
New technology might have brought the accessibility at the same time; we lost the real value of clothes.
Massive production of garments create unsustainable environment. Fabric waste is created during the production. Also the cycle of consuming and throwing away of things(clothes) has been accelerated because we no longer wear clothes for long time since the massive production made the clothes cheaper and made less connected to the thing.
