The fashion industry

This controversial graphic from 'direct-to-consumer' e- tailer' Everlane posted on their Tumblr has caused quite a buzz online recently! Lots of people (especially those from the clothing industry) see it as a massive oversimplification of how to sell clothes. And more importantly, it seems to completely discount two of the most important aspects of the industry: the environmental cost of fashion and the ethical principle of making sure people get a fair wage.

One of my favourite fashion blogs: Well Spent wrote about this too and it stirred up a lot of commentary. Have a read through the comments section of their blog post for some very insightful thoughts.
