How the Fashion Industry is Changing


I believe the industry may be on to something with the see now/buy now concept.  If you can’t beat fast fashion, why not join them!  Some designers have adopted this new concept in order to protect their ideas from being copied and sold before them, while others feel that they don’t want to succumb to the fast fashion model and want to stick to the fashion schedule with the seasons.  See now-buy now is one solution in protecting your brand, creative ideas, by being one step ahead and maximazing your profit and getting to your consumers before the fast fashion companies do.  That way everyone is on equal footing, all the fashion companies, producing as they create.

Fashion is art, and like fine wine should not be rushed rather savored, might be the opinion of the designers resistant to that change.  I agree, however sometimes you have to acknowledge what’s going on around you and make it work for you in order to maintain a viable business.  The following Harpers Bazaar article discusses this issue:

Cheers to change!

District Court ruling on Deferred Action for Parents of Americans & Lawful Permanent Residents & Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. A Preliminary Injuction was issued delaying the February 18th start to the programs that would give 4 million immigrants, parents of American citizens, work permits and three-year deferred deportation DAPA and also expand the original DACA program.

The Department of Justice will appeal the injunction. Keep in mind the Court’s order does not in any way affect existing DACA. You may still request the initial grant of DACA or renewal pursuant to original guidelines.

Clarence Mitchell Papers, The Lion In The Lobby

July 2nd marked the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. While watching Here & Now hosted by Sandra Bookman (admire her) Professor Denton Watson discussed his book called Lion in the Lobby. The book is about Clarence Mitchell, Jr. and it gives an up close account of what he did for the Civil Rights Movement on the inside. I think more often then not we hear about the marches and boycotts, which were quite vital to the movement but very rare do we hear about what was going on in the halls of Congress, talking to Congressmen and getting them to agree to such acts. He was quite instrumental in the passage of civil rights laws.

Read more here about the book and the work the author has done on this subject. We have the same opportunity as Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Clarence Mitchell, Jr. and the countless others that worked foe civil rights to do similar work at the grassroots level or in the halls of Congress in an effort to support and push through legislation that furthers equality of all. You would think it would be easier today to do just that, it seems even harder to work together to get anything done in Congress, bipartisanship is lacking as observed in this article Kind of ironic when you think about…
