Fashion's naked truths | The Economist
 
01:47
Half of all clothes are thrown away within one year—many have never been worn. The industry's obsession with fast fashion comes with a steep environmental price tag. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy Fashion is one of the fastest-growing industries on the planet. Around the world eighty billion new pieces of clothing are sold every year - 400% more than just forty years ago. Americans alone are buying five times more garments than in 1980. Now a $1.3 trillion mega industry, fashion employs more than 300 million people worldwide. While other industries have come apart at the seams, clothing production has doubled in the last 15 years. But it's a fashion statement with a steep environmental price tag - making one kilogram of fabric produces 23 kilograms of greenhouse gases. Textile production generates more carbon dioxide than all international flights and maritime shipping combined. Yet half of all clothes are thrown away within one year - many having never been worn. Fashion is now considered the second most polluting industry in the world after oil. And with increasing middle classes in the developing world keen to make their own fashion statement, this will get worse. If 80 percent of emerging markets reach Western levels of clothes shopping, carbon dioxide emissions could increase by nearly 80% per person. By 2050 total clothing sales could reach 175 million tons - turning the planet into the biggest fashion victim of them all.

The future of fashion | The Economist
 
02:24
The fashion industry is on the verge of a tech revolution. Clothes of tomorrow could be designed, fitted and sold to us by technology alone. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy From Gucci to Chanel, Topshop to Primark - Clothes industry heavyweights rely on fashion forecasters for next season's new look. But advancements in artificial intelligence are about to turn their art into a science. Cognitive computing is now able to identify patterns previously inaccessible to humans. It can simultaneously analyse vast amounts of global data - from social media buzz to political polls - making it possible to accurately spot what's hot and what's not. WGSN, the world's biggest fashion forecaster. now uses AI alongside more traditional methods. A move that could reduce forecasting errors by up to 50%. Trend-spotting mistakes can have far-reaching consequences. H&M recently confessed to a $4.3 billion unsold stock mountain. Industry waste costs both profits and reputation. Technology could make the fashion industry more sustainable. By using machine learning, an AI technique, to match supply with demand unnecessary manufacturing could be limited and fashions environmental footprint reduced. Online retailers are cottoning on. In the next two years 75% of fashion retailers plan to invest in AI. But keeping up with tech giants is going to be tough. Amazon is now developing what's believed to be the world's first AI fashion designer. It plans to use an algorithm that designs clothes by analyzing images and copying popular styles - using them to build completely new designs. This technological makeover could hold huge benefits especially for those who like to shop online. A Japanese company has unveiled the Zozo, a body measurement suit that will ensure the clothes you order fits you perfectly. All meaning our future wardrobes could contain clothes designed for us and sold to us by technology alone.

Circular Economy - Fashion and Behaviour | Mike Dongelmans | TEDxBergen
 
17:52
Mike Dongelmans' talk focuses on changes within the fashion industry and the shift to sustainably produced clothing. "Mud Jeans" produce and sell sustainable everyday fashion made of environmentally friendly, organic (GOTS certified), or recycled cotton with the goal to change the fashion industry to become circular, sustainable and ethical. They offer a total sustainable concept that they hope will attract new customer groups and upgrade the fashion chain stores’ environmental profile as well as stimulate the garment industry in general to adopt a circular economy approach and ecological Fairtrade products.

The changing face of fashion | The Economist
 
01:55
The numbers behind haute couture are staggering, with up to 35% of consumers buying their clothes based on trends recommended by social media. Here's how the industry is cutting its cloth today. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 The fashion industry has annual revenues of more than three trillion dollars and accounts for 2% of total global manufacturing. China is a global leader, exporting over 36% of the world's garments. Its clothing industry has an export value of 175 billion dollars annually but competition is increasing, particularly from some of its neighbours in Asia. Bangladesh is the second largest global exporter of clothing after China - closely followed by Vietnam. But it's not just the production of fashion that is changing; social media has begun to influence consumer decisions when buying clothing. Up to 35% of consumers buy their clothes based on trends recommended by social networks. Fashion brands now live stream their once exclusive fashion shows to the public, whilst high street brands copy haute couture style and get them to market before the designers do. Business is booming for these big fast fashion brands. Zara saw their share of the fashion retail market more than double in the decade from 2004 - but fast fashion creates its own problems as consumers clear out their wardrobes more regularly. Americans threw away 11.1 million tonnes of clothes and shoes in 2013. That amounts to over 4% of the country's rubbish - more than double the level in 1990.

A solution for a sustainable fashion industry | Fredrik Wikholm | TEDxGöteborg
 
14:21
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Every year we throw away 30 kg of clothes, and the textile industry is one of the world’s top 5 polluters. So, how can we make the fashion industry more sustainable? It’s easy, claims social scientist and Creative Director Fredrik Wikholm, we just need ethics, environment and economics to be buddies. With his new innovation “The Rag Bag” Fredrik challenges the business to take action now, before it’s too late. It was the creative mindset and will to change, rather than skills in textile design that brought Fredrik Wikholm and his snowboard collective to start up a fashion brand that focused on sustainability. Now he’s taking recycling to the next level with an open-source innovation institute to pave ways for the fashion industry to make more sustainable choices.

What will people wear in the future? | The Economist
 
06:25
Innovation in fashion is sparking radical change. In the future clothes could be computers, made with materials designed and grown in a lab. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy A new wave of innovation is fuelling a radical change in fashion. Wearable technology, data, automation and lab-grown materials will have a major impact on what people will be wearing in the future. Since the birth of sewing and weaving, technology has always led developments in fashion. The Industrial Revolution mechanized manufacturing enabling mass production. In the 1960s synthetic materials like polyester took off, creating new possibilities for fashion. Now the convergence of new technologies is opening up previously unimaginable possibilities. Self-styled fashion scientist Dr Amanda Parkes is in the vanguard of the industry's latest reinvention. She heads up innovation at FT labs, a venture capital firm that invests primarily in disruptive fashion tech startups. Among these startups the race is on to find the next generation of renewable materials that can be grown in a lab. Traditional silk is produced from insect larvae that form cocoons, most commonly silkworms. But rather than relying on these insects bolt threads is creating silk in test tubes. Bio fabricated materials remove the need for animals and insects and they are a more sustainable and efficient way of producing raw materials. Other companies are creating leather alternatives. Rather than using animals scientists are creating bio fabricated materials from pineapple leaves and even mushrooms. The convergence of fashion and technology also provides opportunities to transform not just clothes but the people wearing them. Myant is a company that's pioneering the creation of clothing that can monitor your every move. So called smart fabrics are being touted as the next frontier of wearable technology. Yarns are paired with electronic sensors so that essential data can be captured from the human body. To create clothing that can monitor the wearer's health and fitness, Myant has brought together teams of people that have not traditionally worked under the same roof. Smart fabrics could radically change consumers relationships with the clothes they wear but as technology increases the pace of change, how can the industry keep track of what consumers really want? Francesca Muston is the head of retail at WGSN, the world's leading fashion forecasting agency. The staff here use big data to analyze political, social, and environmental trends in order to predict the hot new looks of tomorrow. Technology is driving an explosion in consumer choice as well as the bewildering array of clothing design and creation. To keep up the industry is also turning to technology. Machine learning technologies are now central to fashion forecasting, quickly spotting patterns among the ever-growing volume of data. From biotechnology to demographic shifts predicting trends is no longer an art it's becoming a science.

A new textiles economy: Redesigning fashion's future
 
01:12
Ellen MacArthur and Stella McCartney co-launched the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s latest report A new textiles economy: Redesigning fashion's future on November 28, 2017. The report, created by the Circular Fibres Initiative which launched in May this year, calls for the fashion industry to adopt this new vision and create cross industry collaborations to achieve it. Clothes are an everyday necessity, and for many an important expression of individuality. Yet the industry’s current take-make-dispose model is the root cause of many environmental impacts and substantial economic value loss. Every second, the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or burned. An estimated USD 500 billion value is lost every year due to clothing that’s barely worn and rarely recycled. If nothing changes, by 2050 the fashion industry will use up a quarter of the world’s carbon budget. As well as being wasteful, the industry is polluting: clothes release half a million tonnes of microfibres into the ocean every year, equivalent to more than 50 billion plastic bottles. Microfibres are likely impossible to clean up and can enter food chains. Find out more about the initiative's ongoing work here: tiny.cc/fibres.
The high cost of cheap clothing | Trisha Striker | TEDxTownsville
 
11:40
No one wants to support child, forced or sweatshop labour. Yet, how many of us actually know how and where our clothing is made? Let's use our buying power and our voices to change the direction the fashion and clothing industry is taking the world, and help end exploitation. Trisha was born in and spent the first sixteen years of her life in India. As a little girl, Trisha was always burdened by the stark differences in living standards between the ‘rich’ and ‘poor’ and the ill treatment of the most vulnerable in society. This burden only grew as she became more aware of the world and its many problems until finally, she decided to leave India in search of answers. Armed with the desire to understand the world and the determination to develop the knowledge and skills needed to be a part of the solution, she came to Australia in 2004. Trisha is passionate about culture, education, freedom and equality. She is also passionate about finding smart, inclusive, culturally sensitive and sustainable answers to big issues such as gender inequality, poverty, education and exploitation. It was in pursuit of these goals that she began studying Economics at James Cook University, a decision that continually challenges her and broadens her mind.

Revolution of circular economy in clothing industry | Bert van Son | TEDxYouth@Maastricht
 
09:19
Bert van Son went Beyond Horizons with his idea to sell one million recyclable fair trade jeans, made of organic cotton. MUDJeans seeks to change the fashion industry, to shift to recyclable production garments and change the consumers attitude towards clothing. He has the ambition to sell 1 million sustainably produced jeans. And he is definitely working hard to achieve this goal. After 30 years of work, businessman Bert van Son has seen how dirty and unfair the fashion industry really is, and decided this was something he wanted to change. Bert took initiative to set up a new sustainable fashion business model, striving to change the fashion industry. He came up with a new concept: lease a jeans. Besides producing the jeans with organic cotton in fair trade factories , the idea is that people can rent their jeans. Customers change from being the owners to being users, and when they stop wearing the jeans the jeans are returned thus using the raw material again in a recycle process .

Fashion & Free Trade: Questions about Globalism, Tariffs, and Trade
 
08:39
Do you know where your clothing comes from? America consumes billions of dollars of apparel every year. Chances are, your apparel of choice wasn’t made in the United States, but thousands of miles away in countries such as China, Vietnam, and Bangladesh. Over the last few decades, fashion has become a global industry, affecting manufacturers, workers, retailers, and consumers alike. While your choice of fashion may appear to be superficial, the questions surrounding the industry deal with important political, economic, and moral issues. How is fashion affected by trade policies? Are tariffs effective in promoting domestic industry? Do free trade agreements help those who take part in them? Lawyers, law professors, and industry experts explore the complicated issues surrounding the apparel industry.

Fashion Industry Thrives Despite Struggling Economy
 
01:17
From FNNO.com, This is the financial news network. I'm Kimberly Odom. The fashion industry is one segment that's continuing to grow in this struggling economy. And what better way to showcase it then through New York Fashion Week. Tommy Hilfiger, king of American cool will be returning downtown for his two shows during the event. The designer will show his spring men's collection at The Maritime Hotel's North Cabana on Sept. 7 and the women's show at the High Line's Chelsea Market Passage on Sept. 9. Last seasons show was featured at the Park Avenue Armory. The move was deliberate. As he told Women's Wear Daily, "This season is all about dramatic, open-air settings." On other fashion week news, Michael Kors is gearing up for his much anticipated Spring 2013 show which is scheduled for September 7th at Lincoln Center. His company, Kors Holdings Ltd.'s (NYSE:KORS) has been doing well since its IPO in November. Its fiscal first-quarter earnings nearly tripled, comfortably beating expectations, as the company saw double-digit same-store sales gains in both North America and Europe.

How to fuel the future | The Economist
 
03:25
America, under President Donald Trump, is securing its “energy independence” with oil and gas. But unlike fossil fuels, renewables will not increase global warming —and China is moving fast. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: https://econ.st/2xvTKdy Oil moves the world around and creates powerful countries. Oil is such a vital commodity that it provoked wars throughout the 20th century. The few countries that produce it, try to keep control of it to ensure its riches stay at home. Those who do not have it, strive to get it. In the 1930s Saudi Arabia was one of the poorest countries in the world but the discovery of oil transformed it and Saudi Arabia has amassed $515.6 billion in sovereign wealth funds. It has become the linchpin of a powerful cartel that sometimes rations oil to push up prices. The United States is now the biggest producer of oil and gas owing to its shale revolution. It has tapped abundant reserves through fracking - a technology that uses high-pressure water and sand to fracture rock deep below the ground to extract hydrocarbons. This shale revolution has helped the United States become less dependent on oil imported from Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Iraq, and other OPEC countries. More oil and gas on global markets has also benefited the world's energy consumers by pushing down costs. Oil still remains the primary fuel, supplying almost 1/3 of the world's energy but its heyday may soon be over, despite growing demand. By 2040 the world's global energy use is set to increase by 30 percent. That energy must be much cleaner if the world wants to prevent catastrophic global warming. In the past coal and gas were less expensive than renewable technology but their costs have come down dramatically. There is now a race among some nations to create more efficient renewable technologies to reduce pollution and be more energy self-sufficient. China is the world's largest consumer of coal and the second largest of oil but it also now leads the world in clean energy. one third of the world's new wind power and solar panels is installed in China, and it sells more electric cars than any other country. The quest for energy self-sufficiency is a big motivation for many countries. China is moving fast, and America under President Donald Trump, is securing its energy independence with oil and gas. But unlike oil and gas renewables will not increase global warming. The long term transition to clean energy will throw up new global challenges. It will create tensions in unstable parts of the Middle East as oil revenue starts to dry up. Another challenge is that wind and sun are intermittent. renewables may require vast shared electricity grids spanning boarders to make them more efficient. To stop global warming the world needs a huge collaboration over our shared energy future. If we fail, wars over scarce resources could be even worse in the 21st century than in the 20th.

LSE Events | The Future of Fashion: can the industry be in vogue and sustainable?
 
01:16:20
As fashion production processes get faster and faster, this event will ask: how can fashion brands and producers adapt their business models, in the face of growing demands to reduce the environmental impacts from the production, consumption and disposal of clothing? Chaired by Dr Richard Perkins from the Department of Geography and Environment, a panel of speakers brought together by the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment will explore how fashion now demands faster and faster production and consumption of clothing; new approaches being pioneered by brands to become more sustainable; and the role consumers play in shaping demand for a new type of fashion future.
