"Fashion This" Series at St. Norbert College and Silver Lake College

From St. Norbert College, August 17, 2016

"Fashion This," a series of exhibitions and events that shine a light on "fast fashion"
practices while also proposing practical, small-scale solutions, has several events and
exhibitions beginning Aug. 29 and running through Oct. 13.

Fast fashion is a term used by fashion retailers to express that designs move from the
catwalk quickly into stores in order to capture current fashion trends. Fast fashion clothing
collections are based on the most recent fashion trends presented at "Fashion Week" in
both the spring and the autumn every year.

All of the "Fashion This" events and exhibitions will take place at either St. Norbert College
or Silver Lake College in Manitowoc.

Fast fashion depends on cheap prices, sweatshops, child labor and over consumption. It
reportedly pollutes water supplies, generates massive amounts of waste and is
unsustainable.
