Fast As You Can: A Fast Fashion Introduction

The subject of ethical, sustainable fashion is vast.


I’ve been dealing with information overload and a little analysis paralysis.

My educational mission with this blog is to inform and increase awareness of ethical & sustainable fashion, the slow fashion movement, and garment industry practices.

But it’s hard to know where to begin.

It’s a challenge to maintain a narrow scope when I’ve found so much data about really significant problems that are worth talking about.

To provide information of real value and keep myself from going overboard, I’m going to focus on shorter posts with singular topics.

With that in mind, I’ll start from the very beginning!

If you want to learn about sustainable fashion, fast fashion is a good place to start.


I discovered this helpful video, “Fast Fashion Explained in Under 5 Minutes” on Kristen Leo’s fun, informative YouTube channel about ethical fashion and living. Kristen gives an excellent primer to the concept.

I think you’ll enjoy it much more than me relaying all the details in writing.

Watch “Fast Fashion Explained in Under 5 Minutes”

Pretty painless, right? Maybe you even knew some stuff you didn’t know you knew. 😉

If you’re interested in watching more of Kristen’s videos, check out her YouTube channel.

Now that you have a foundation on fast fashion, in future posts, I’ll start breaking down some of the environmental, social, and labor issues that surround the fashion industry.

I’m so glad you’re here!

Stylishly Yours,
