...Changes of Fashion in the World Fashion is a general term for a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion refers to a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style with which a person dresses, as well as to prevailing styles in behavior. Fashion also refers to the newest creations of textile designers (Fashion). The more technical term, costume, has become so linked to the term "fashion" that the use of the former has been relegated to special senses like fancy dress or masquerade wear, while "fashion" means clothing more generally and the study of it. Although aspects of fashion can be feminine or masculine, some trends are androgynous (Bruzzi 2012), (Cumming 2004) The fashion industry is a product of the modern age. Prior to the mid-19th century, most clothing was custom made. It was handmade for individuals, either as home production or on order from dressmakers and tailors. By the beginning of the 20th century with the rise of new technologies such as the sewing machine, the rise of global capitalism and the development of the factory system of production, and the proliferation of retail outlets such as department stores clothing had increasingly come to be mass-produced in standard sizes and sold at fixed prices. Although the fashion industry developed first in Europe and America, today it is an international and highly globalized industry, with clothing often designed in one country,......

Not only have they recently released the much anticipated, fashion forward, iPhone 5c and 5s, but also they have managed to recruit Burberrys own CEO Angela Ahrendts. The worlds of high fashion and technology have officially collided. This is quite an accomplishment not just for apple, but for the fashion industry as well. Having someone as powerful and trendsetting as Ahrendts take the position of senior vice president of retail and online stores at apple can make a major impact on the fashion industry since we are always expanding with the use of technology. Apple, who has been without a retail head for almost a year now, has hired Ahrendts for her outstanding skills and work of digital marketing in the prominent British Fashion House. They are hoping to boost up online retail sales since they have not been doing as well as they hoped in this department for a while. Since Burberry is categorized as a luxury brand, she has gotten very involved in the digital aspect of the trademark. Burberry has a transactional website and an extreme amount of online engagement. This all benefits Angela when taking on her new role at apple. It is said that Christopher Bailey, who is currently the creative director, will be taking on the position as CEO as well as creative director of Burberry. The company is not worried about its future and is happy for......

...3.The rise of digital media has democratized fashion journalism, shifting traditional power relationships and producing different kinds of representation Discuss and critically evaluate this statement with reference to the fashion media. INTRODUCTION The digital revolution, including the mechanical, electronic and digital technology, took off in the 1980s. This revolution brought tremendous changes due to the computing and communication technologies. Analogous to the agricultural revolution and the industrial revolution, the digital revolution marked the beginning of the information age. The idea is that the current age will be characterized by the ability of the individuals to transfer information freely, and to have instant access to knowledge that previously would have been difficult or impossible to find. The main component of this revolution is the mass production of computers and mobile phones. As a matter of facts, the number of Internet users in 1990, being 2.8 million, increased by approximately 75.000% in the next eleven years, reaching 2.095 billion users in 2011. The positive aspect of this revolution is that it enhanced society’s growth and development at an impressive rate. The economic impact of the digital revolution has been enormous.Without the World Wide Web (WWW), globalization and outsourcing would not be at the level it is today. Other positive aspects are the interconnectivity, the ease of communication and the exposure to information. These......

Sustainable Fashion

...In my current unit I have been studying it’s all about working as a designer for a label that is concerned with the issues surrounding sustainability. The term Eco fashion can mean many things, I see it as something has been made that considers environmental issues and social impact a product may have through out its total lifespan. Another term for this is ‘carbon footprint’ Sustainable fashion is all part of sustainable design. The purpose is to create designs that respect the environment and help poorer communities in developing countries. Clothes and accessories that meet the criteria are usually made using organic raw materials such as cotton grown without the use of pesticides; re used materials such as recycled plastic from coke bottles. Eco fashions don’t involve the use of harmful chemicals and bleaches – and are made by people earning fair wages in safe conditions. Eco fashion has always been seen as green and not very stylish! But over recent years developing techniques and more designers wanting to include these issues in their collections Eco Fashion has a new face designers are now incorporating sustainable practises into modern clothing. On trend fashion but with all sustainable issues covered. Celebrities, models and designers have really started to promote Eco fashion.

When a fashion company aims to promote sustainability, the main linkage is to develop a sustainable supply chain. This paper contributes to current knowledge of sustainable supply chain in the textile and clothing industry. We first depict the structure of sustainable fashion supply chain including eco-material preparation, sustainable manufacturing, green distribution, green retailing, and ethical consumers based on the extant literature. We study the case of the Swedish fast fashion company, H&M, which has constructed its sustainable supply chain in developing eco-materials, providing safety training, monitoring sustainable manufacturing, reducing carbon emission in distribution, and promoting eco-fashion. Moreover, based on the secondary data and analysis, we learn the lessons of H&M’s sustainable fashion supply chain from the country perspective: (1) the H&M’s sourcing managers may be more likely to......

...European 'cheap chic' stores like H & M in fashion March 01, 2004 12:00AM Take a look at Fifth Avenue in the low 50s, and it's easy to see the growth and importance of European "cheap chic" or "fast fashion" in New York.  In 2000, H & M - the Ikea of fashion - opened a massive, 35,000 square foot flagship store on Fifth Avenue at 51st Street, announcing its presence in Manhattan in a big way.  Only recently did fellow European competitors follow the Swedish retailer to Fifth Avenue.  In the fall, Mexx, the Dutch company bought by Liz Clairborne two years ago, made its U.S. debut by opening in a glassy flagship store on 52nd Street. Zara, the Spanish fashion store, is scheduled to open at 54th Street.  H & M has become the hot destination for the Gen X, Y and Z set by providing up-to-the-minute trends at K-Mart prices. It's been facing off against its competitors in the Flatiron District to Union Square to Soho to Herald Square and the area around Bloomingdale's.  "It's promotional disposable fashion," said Stephen J. Stephanou, executive vice president at Madison HGCD. "You might see a customer standing in line with 10 of the latest trendy tube tops for $150, and if it doesn't dissolve on the disco floor, that's great."  "It's a niche that hadn't existed before," he said. "It's going to be a phenomenon that will continue to expand in the city."  H & M, which has six stores in Manhattan, has been the most aggressive in its expansion efforts, while Zara,......

Is the Contemporary Uk Fashion Industry Sustainable?

...Contemporary UK Fashion Industry Sustainable? The sustainability of the fashion industry is one of the major concerns facing many stakeholders in the sector. The UK fashion industry is increasingly facing a wide range of sustainability issues ranging from wastes generation due to increased production of fashion products to the use of toxic materials in the production of fashion items. In addition, the industry has also been faced with the problem of the growing problem of widespread use of unsustainable materials such as non-biodegradable materials that are not usually easy to recycle as well as the current energy consumption to the release of millions of tons of greenhouse gasses released during the manufacture of fashion and textile products. It is widely believed that many of these sustainability challenges and issues are largely attributed to the recent increased flow of a diverse range of fashion products particularly clothing and textiles in the UK market. For example, recent statistics indicate that that up to 3.2 million tonnes of fashion related products like clothing and textiles currently flow through the country each year . Generally, the environmental impacts of the fashion sector mainly include its high contribution to the climate change in the form of the increasing requirement of fossil fuels required in the generation of energy used in the industry such as in the production and manufacture sectors. For example, the intense production of fashion items to......

Ryna Lochte was seen at Calvin Klien, Emporio Armani, and Rebecca Minkoff, Sanya Richard-Ross was seen at BCBG and Peter Son, and Alex Morgan was seen at Veronica Beard. Why are so many athletes attending fashion shows? Brian Mazza, the founder of Windsor custom menswear says, “athletes are instant icons and and household names,” and that is why he hired Ryan Lochte to host him brands pop up shop during Fashion’s night out. Having an olympian at a show or event will undoubtfully get attention from the media and bring in his fans and benefit the company. Besides there being a benefit for the company the athletes can also benefit. Attending the shows and events will extend the athletes moment in the spotlight. But besides the flashbulbs, reporters, bloggers, and twitters there can be many buisness oppertunites available at these events.

Sustainable Fashion

...Gina Garza Sustainable Fashion Sustainable fashion also known as ‘Green,’ has been successfully promoted in the past years to become the new black. This is a new trend that will hopefully prevail not only for a season but also for years. If people keep supporting it, it could possibly prevail forever. As technology has developed the planet Earth has been deteriorating slowly. This new concept supports and promotes the idea for people to be environmentally conscious. The idea is to care for the place where we humans live. Green is now everywhere. When you go to the market to buy groceries you can find that there is sustainable packaging that will integrate to the planet after its use. Now people take their own cloth bags to carry the products that they purchase so they don’t use plastic bags. This has become a fashion as well. To be more environmental friendly, why not use sustainable clothes? Clothes are one of the major necessities that a human may have. People can look fashionable, in style, and support the planet at the same time. The nonprofit Sustainable Technology Education Project (STEP) defines eco-fashions as clothes “that take into account the environment, the health of consumers and the working conditions of people in the fashion industry” (West). Sustainable fashion is designed to be completely environmental friendly. This whole movement complements a larger trend of "ethical fashion," and according to the May 2007 Vogue appears not to be a short-term trend......
