@Phuel Love that last line. In this current state of what I like to call “E-Activism”, the only opinion that truly matters is that of the majority. I recently wrote a piece outlining the importance and growth of the second-hand luxury goods market. Websites like TheRealReal and the duo behind the company Re-SEE are changing the shopping patterns of consumers at a rapid pace, so much so that retail analysts suggest the second-hand goods industry will surpass that of the growth of fast fashion by a pretty wide margin in the next decade. This is incredible news and should be broadcast everywhere in my honest opinion. These figures and projections are cast aside, however, as anyone with an internet connection is able to interject and impose their opinion without any second thought. As you mentioned, the many entitled and actually privileged people scouring the internet with a chip on their shoulder for who knows what reason would like people to believe they have some type of idea of what is going on across the world because they read Buzzfead or ponder over the Washington Posts “Post Most” material once a week. If every label could mirror that of Dries Van Noten and support a third-world countries population with providing good paying jobs for craftsmanship I am sure they would. But you mean to tell me we are going to sit here and listen to “influencers” or “activists” speak on the troubling realities of the fashion industry on Twitter while they sip $18 margs from a rooftop in the Lower East Side? Book a trip to Vietnam or Bangladesh where these large factories are located and convince workers to leave their posts due to your opinion on fashion and fashion, I am sure that will work wonderfully. This is the age of the opinion and information overload. No opinion is wrong and everyone is right. That is why I love this forum so much- educated people discussing real topics that have FACTUAL evidence to back their claims, refreshing isn’t it? This idea of e-activism and the current climate of misinformation is astonishing to say the least.
