The Re Generation

Fashion thrives on trends—some are short-lived, others outlive their appeal.  One of the most interesting trends that appears to have lasting power isn’t about minis or midis—it’s about maximizing sustainability.  Fast fashion has raised consumer awareness about the environmental impact of its production methods.  As a result, shopping habits are evolving to include preliminary research about a brand’s eco-philosophy before making a purchase.  The fashion industry has taken notice.





Protect yourself from the elements on your next morning run in this lightweight performance pullover featuring breezy cutouts at the back and waterproof construction at the front. Adjustable drawstrings at the funnel neck and hem and chunky ribbed cuffs are designed to help lock-in warmth. Style Name: Adidas By Stella Mccartney Tech Pullover.



Empowered by their mantra of reuse-recycle-rethink, the Re Generation is exerting their influence on the fashion industry.  They’re paying attention to climate trends and they’re not satisfied with the direction things are going, so they’re using their buying power to apply pressure for change.  Fashion companies are implementing practices like responsible manufacturing processes to eliminate waste and conserve resources, and designers are using sustainably sourced fabrics for their new collections.  The availability of sustainable fashion ranges from recreational clothing from Stella McCartney to resplendent dresses from Reformation. 

For the Re Generation, sustainability aligns with their lifestyle, so they also choose organic food and beauty products whenever possible, and they volunteer in programs that help their communities.  They are even starting to expect retailers to support philanthropic programs:  did you know that Nordstrom donates 2.5% of the net sales of their brand Treasure & Bond to organizations that work to empower youth?  There’s no denying the mission of the Re Generation to restore sustainability to the fashion lifecycle.
