As Coco Chanel beautifully said: “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
Fashion is a whole, it’s a harmony, it’s elegance, it’s relevance. At least, that’s my way of experiencing it. So I absolutely don’t understand why anyone would be happy buying low quality clothes in huge quantity. It goes way above my head!
Why does anyone need to have so much variety? And again, if variety and super large closet is what rocks your world, and it kind of spice up mine within limits, why not collecting good pieces over the years?
High quality clothes stay for ages.
I am very confused as to why anyone would happily look cheap in new clothes, trampish after the 1st wash and mindlessly throw it away after the 3rd wash has terminated it.
How can one say they love fashion and clothes yet they chose badly cut garments made out of low quality fabrics?
And how can they dispose painlessly of that great piece they looooved and had to buy?
It seems clear to me that the love here is for owning and consuming, not fashion and clothes. Does it make them feel fulfilled and happy?
You think you have to own in order to feel, to exist, to be part of society and your lack of satisfaction makes you pursue this quest by the same mean again and again as maybe it will work eventually.
But it won’t and your mindless journey doesn’t only destroy you.
Key words: pollution, child labour, sweat shops, carbon footprint, waste, toxic

If you love fashion, chose good fabrics, good stitching, good cuts, local designers, fair trade, good fit for your shape.
Less is more.
Time to change!
