The hastening speed and obsolescence of modern consumer goods–expressed in its most extreme form within fast fashion–has fundamentally reshaped society, culture, economics, and ultimately our sense of selves. Overheated global supply chains now work tirelessly in the service of producing ever-evolving “novel” new products–in the case of fashion, retail chains restock shelves several times a week with new colors and cuts perfectly attuned to consumer demand at that very specific moment.
Join us for a discussion with one of the world’s leaders and thinkers in the field of fast fashion, globalization, and disposable consumption, Brooklyn journalist and musician, Elizabeth L. Cline.
