The histories of all products will be lost. The degradation of products and place producers and consumers is inevitable - Wendel Berry (Eco Guru) It is well known that trends are making are consumer levels rocket. Trends can form in many different ways but very rarely stick around for long. The desire or need to stay on the latest trends in order to be excepted or deemed stylish has become a massive course as to why fashion is the biggest contributor to landfill. Many ethical designers for this reason design basic pieces. Items that will stand the test of time. Garment that a wearer will always be able to enjoy as they never truly fade away. However, designing basic can drain the creative fun out designing and wearing clothes. Although scraping trends seems like a solution, is it really plausible in today’s society. Although there are wardrobe staple’s that everyone require they don’t offer much in terms of style and freedom to express are selves. By designing simple items that can be interchanged or manipulate to fit a curtain silhouette, length and pattern / texture you not only aloud the wearer to style around the latest trend as well as not taking the creative freedom from the designer and owner. But also solve the issue of people unnecessarily buying one off trend following items that inevitably end up in are bins once the hype has passed.
