FTT Professor Describes Growing Acceptance of Slow-Fashion Model

SUNY Buffalo State

When clothing retailer Forever 21 announced its bankruptcy filing in late September, Arlesa Shephard, Buffalo State associate professor of fashion and textile technology (FTT), wasn’t surprised. Forever 21, which grew exponentially from the1980s through the 2000s selling cheap, trendy clothes, is planning to close 350 stores in the United States and abroad. Shephard has been researching the opposite trend — slow fashion — since 2013. Clothing in the slow-fashion model is made with more care from higher-quality fabric and with less harmful chemicals. The clothes cost more, but last longer.
