It may be quite some time until the fast-fashion industry completely slows down, but with new trends being set in motion, there is now hope that 'slow fashion' is a trend gathering traction.

But more often than not, they come with a high environmental price tag in the long term; the fashion industry is the second biggest polluter in the world, only second to oil.

Summary: 
Fast fashion - If you’re asked to name high-emitting industries, one important contributor and very mandatory product might not quickly come to mind: clothing. The fashion industry contributes roughly 10 per cent of all global greenhouse gas emissions because of its energy-intensive production and long-supply chain, according to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Fast fashion, inexpensive clothing produced quickly at a mass-market level, is a particularly guilty culprit.
