Just How Big is the Fashion Industry?

We all know the fashion industry is huuuge. Fashion is a part of everyone's life and for some of us we have outfits to run in, outfits to brunch in, power lunch outfits, cocktails, formal attire and finally our go-to sweats for a lazy Sunday... We get it. 

But few of us realize just how big (and unfortunately dirty) fashion really is. Here is an enlightening infographic from The Glascow Caledonian Fair Fashion Center that breaks down the size and scope of the industry.

Moral of the Story: Fashion is sadly a destructive industry. But it's the only industry that if done correctly, could postively impact almost all of the UN Millenial Goals. Let's use fashion as a force for good.
