The Wall Street Journal recently posted an interview addressing how designers and retailers are responding to warmer global temperatures.
The video revealed that there are other factors at play. And we agree.
Fashion has historically thrived on an obsolescence factor built into changing seasons. The advent of air conditioning, cars and textile technology have made the seasons passe.
There's also a polarity of prices at play that transcends seasons. You can invest in one fabulous piece, but buy less expensive items on a weekly basis. No one is shy about mixing and matching anymore.
So the fashion issue is less a question of global warming than it is global advancement and an empowered consumer.
