The Short List: Fast Fashion

From the cheap thrill it delivers to its dark, unsustainable side, here’s a quick glimpse at the workings of fast fashion.

Our minds want clothes as much as our bodies.

- Samuel Butler

Lyric: The Red Shoes (1993) by Kate Bush

Just take off my red shoes, put them on and your dream’ll come true.

“Clothes as text, clothes as narration, clothes as a story. Clothes as the story of our lives. And if you were to gather all the clothes you have ever owned in all your life, each baby shoe and winter coat and wedding dress, you would have your autobiography. You could wear, once more, your own life in all its stages, from whatever they wrapped you in when you emerged from the dark red naked warmth of the womb to your deathbed.”

 

- Linda Grant
