One size fits… NO ONE EVER!

At risk of sounding redundant there is this notion in ready to wear clothing that we all have the same shape and size bodies. It’s not completely intended for the soul purpose of making us feel horrible, but it does definitely do a great job of raising everyone’s debts just a touch to achieve maximum visual appeal.

Recently had this awesome video shared with me.

I don’t even feel like I have to elaborate on this, it says so much as is. The real issues of fast fashion and ready to wear clothing is that it is also not intended to last. It’s meant to become obsolete like everything else. Can you imagine the ecological impact if we all went back to even the beginnings of ready to wear clothing and the creation of the department stores in the last 1800’s? Our styles might not change as quickly, but the quality and craftsmanship of tailors and dress makers who actually fit clothing to your body?

I wish that I could say if we went back to this time period there would not still be social stigma on the way you were seen publicly if not wearing the latest fashions. We’ve been dealing with that since the middle ages.

Anyway, my thoughts for the week.
