Fiona’s Findings: Fashion forecast for 2015 — The Zeitgeist

The concept of "one-for-one" or shopping with meaning is taking a front seat; whether brands are selling apparel, eyewear or even a toothbrush.

My 2015 fashion forecast is that fashion has long been considered frivolous. Now the concept of “one-for-one” or shopping with meaning is taking a front seat; whether brands are selling apparel, eyewear or even a toothbrush. Consumers are starting to care more about where and how brands get and serve their products; social responsibility is part of the future of fashion. This is the spirit of the time.

What will not change, however, is the coolness of owning a jeans jacket; that is always in style.

Happy 2015.

Loach has always believed (too sanguinely) in the power of the working class, but his recent work has been much less optimistic about the workers capacity to transform a recalcitrant social and political world.
