The end of fast fashion?


With his Fashion Pact, French president Emmanuel Macron has attempted the first move towards a more sustainable global fashion industry.

Meanwhile, many boutique firms offer new, recyclable materials in France for the growing number of consumers concerned with the ecological impact of what they wear.

Since 2000, the global production of clothing has doubled while the individual consumption of clothes has gone up by 60%, making the textile industry the second most polluting in the world after oil extraction. This worrying trend recently led, for the first time, a head of state in French president Emmanuel Macron to publicly address the issue of the ecological cost of fashion.
