PRADA’S GOT A POINT
Have you ever wondered what Prada design pioneer and all-around inspiring woman, Miuccia Prada, thinks of fast fashion? Well, here it is…:
'It poses a perfect example of hypocrisy, no? People who are intellectual leftists, they say I am expensive and horrible, “How can you sell clothes at that price?” Simply, it’s the cost. If you pay people to do everything with the right system, things are expensive. And the same people that criticize the [dangerous production environments], when it comes to cost they like the inexpensive pieces because they think it’s more democratic. This is an example of hypocrisy.'
When the woman is right, she’s right. Especially in these times of clicktivism it’s all too easy (especially for young adults) to convey a righteous or politically correct opinion at a click of a button, without really understanding what the movement you’re liking is really about.
