How Zara plans to make its fast fashion empire more sustainable

ITX

Last fall, at New York Fashion Week, tie-dye was absolutely everywhere: Everyone from Prada to Stella McCartney to Proenza Schouler sent models down the catwalk in hippie-inspired gowns and T-shirts. But for those of us who can’t afford to drop $2,000 on embroidered tie-dye gowns, Zara had our back. Zara’s 300 designers churn out 12,000 new designs every year and for the most fashion-forward pieces, it takes as little as six weeks to go from a sketch to a product on a shelf. But as the fashion industry moves toward more eco-friendly practices, it’s worth asking: Can fast fashion ever really be sustainable? Over the last few months, other fashion giants like Nike and Gap Inc. have made similar commitments to using more sustainable materials and cutting down on their carbon footprints. But here’s the thing: Trendy clothes have a short shelf life. Making each part of the business more sustainable could add up to massive decreases in carbon and plastic pollution. Yet nowhere in its announcement did Inditex address the sheer volume of clothes it produces, nor its model of selling fashion-forward clothes at a fraction of the price of designer brands.

Zara pledges 100% 'sustainable' fabrics by 2025

ITX

Fashion chain Zara is set to switch all collections to 100% "sustainable" fabrics by the start of 2025. The commitment will see Zara remove all synthetic fibres made using fossil fuels removed from its clothing, shoe and accessory lines – a commitment that also covers the inclusion of such content in notoriously hard-to-recycle textile blends. In tandem, efforts will be made to source a greater proportion of “renewable” natural fabrics such as cotton, linen and hemp from sources certified as sustainable. With more than 100 billion garments and 20 billion pairs of shoes being produced by the global fashion industry, such critics, including the likes of the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC), Stella McCartney, Extinction Rebellion and Fashion Revolution have claimed that true sustainability for fashion cannot be achieved under unchecked growth.

Fast fashion: Zara promises all its clothes will be sustainable by 2025

ITX

Reacting to the news, Friends of the Earth told Radio 1 Newsbeat it would be "better for everyone if the industry sold clothes made to last." Over the past few years, a lot of what we buy has been criticised for being fast fashion - clothes we barely use. What will you see in the shops? From next year, containers will appear in Zara stores to collect your old clothes so they can be reused or recycled into new items. Some people in the fashion industry have been calling for more clothes recycling in order to protect the environment - while politicians think brands and shops should fund clothes recycling . Zara is one of the stores not to currently use plastic bags and Inditex, the company that owns the chain, says that by 2020 it will eliminate the use of plastic bags across all of its brands.

Zara's hot polka dot dress beats big data

ITX

A $69.90 polka dot dress from Zara has become the fashion hit of the summer. Despite little email or social media promotion from the chain, the flowy, universally flattering mid-length frock has become so ubiquitous that someone has created an Instagram account to collect sightings of it out in the fashion wilds – including several that appear to show multiple women wearing it to the same event. There is no doubt that Inditex’s business model has served it handsomely for more than four decades. But its approach must prove its mettle now more than ever. Otherwise, its advantages risk being gradually whittled away, along with the group’s industry-leading profitability. Many competitors order from factories at least six months in advance. But Inditex’s brands, led by Zara, which accounts for about 70% of group sales, produce most of their garments within the current fashion season.

Zara's Hot Polka Dot Dress Beats Big Data

ITX

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- A $69.90 polka dot dress from Zara has become the fashion hit of the summer. Despite little email or social media promotion from the chain, the flowy, universally flattering mid-length frock has become so ubiquitous that someone has created an Instagram account to collect sightings of it out in the fashion wilds – including several that appear to show multiple women wearing it to the same event. The frenzy around the garment epitomizes the ability of the brand’s parent, Inditex SA, to ride a sartorial wave. But the company, founded by Spain’s richest man, Amancio Ortega, is coming under intensified pressure. Many competitors order from factories at least six months in advance. But Inditex’s brands, led by Zara, which accounts for about 70% of group sales, produce most of their garments within the current fashion season.

Starbucks moves quickly to apologize after barista reportedly asked six Tempe police officers to leave

ITX SBUX

Starbucks (SBUX) is moving quickly to address the fresh hot water it finds itself in, this time with supporters of law enforcement across social media. The coffee giant has come under fire on July 4 weekend for how a barista at a store in Tempe, Arizona reportedly treated six police officers that visited the location. The group was approached by a barista — one that is allegedly friendly with one of the cops — and were asked to move out of the line of sight of a customer because he “did not feel safe.”. Some accounts of the incident have suggested the barista then asked the six officers to leave the store. “On behalf of Starbucks, I want to sincerely apologize to you all for the experience that six of your officers had in our store on July 4,” wrote Starbucks executive vice president of U.S. retail Rosanne Williams in a letter to the Tempe police chief and police department.
