What is Fast Fashion?

Table of Contents

Hi there! I’m Julie, the CEO of Natural Touch Clothing. Today, I want to discuss a topic that’s often on the lips of many in our industry: fast fashion. It’s a term that’s both celebrated and criticized, and as a professional in the clothing manufacturing sector, I’ve got some insights to share.

The Essence of Fast Fashion

Fast fashion refers to the rapid production of inexpensive clothing, replicating the latest trends and styles seen on runways or worn by celebrities.

Key Characteristics:

  • Speed to Market: Fast fashion’s hallmark is its quick turnaround time from design to shelf.
  • Affordability: These garments are usually priced lower, making them accessible to a broader audience.
  • Trend-Focused: The designs are often driven by current fashion trends.

The Process

Fast fashion brands operate on a model that prioritizes speed and cost-effectiveness. The process typically involves:

  • Trend Analysis: Identifying what’s popular right now.
  • Rapid Design and Production: Quick creation and manufacturing of these trends.
  • Fast Distribution: Speedy delivery to stores.

Why Fast Fashion?

From a business perspective, fast fashion responds to the consumer’s desire for trendy clothing at an affordable price. It’s a model that caters to the ‘here and now’ of fashion.

Impact on Consumer Behavior

Fast fashion has changed how consumers shop. It has created an expectation of constant newness, encouraging more frequent purchases.

The Other Side of the Coin

While fast fashion has its advantages, it’s not without its drawbacks:

  • Sustainability Concerns: The fast fashion model often leads to increased waste and environmental impact.
  • Quality Issues: To keep costs down, the quality of garments can suffer.
  • Ethical Concerns: Questions around labor practices in the manufacturing process are often raised.

Our Stance at Natural Touch Clothing

At Natural Touch Clothing, while we appreciate the need for trend-responsive fashion, we prioritize quality and sustainability. Our approach is more aligned with ‘slow fashion’ – focusing on timeless designs, quality materials, and ethical manufacturing.

1. Quality Over Quantity

We believe in producing garments that last, reducing the need for constant replacement and, in turn, reducing waste.

2. Ethical Production

Our commitment to ethical production practices is unwavering. Our factory, with its five production lines, adheres to the highest standards of labor practices.

Fast Fashion and the Global Market

Fast fashion’s impact is global. It’s reshaped the fashion industries in Europe, the USA, and Australia – some of our main export countries.

As consumer awareness grows, there’s a shift towards more sustainable practices, even within the fast fashion industry.


Fast fashion has undoubtedly left its mark on the industry. However, at Natural Touch Clothing, we believe in a balanced approach that values quality, sustainability, and ethical practices alongside staying current with fashion trends.
