1. CONTEXTUALISATION OF CASE (PASSION LILIE): There is an increased need for conspicuous consumption of fast fashion to slow down, especially in today’s context where there are massive concerns about global climate, ecological issues, shortage of energy sources and ethical manufacturers. Technology has opened up possibilities for us to change the way we design and shop for clothing through sustainable fashion, .by increasing system efficiencies, reducing product and waste flow, and using a combination of the two (Hethorn & Ulasewicz 2008: 95-101).
Vrinda Vardhan- Editor in chief Editor’s note In the past couple of years, the fashion industry of the world has seen the use and application of terms such as “ Being Ethical, Being Sustanable, Being Ecological”. These words have been so overused in the past couple of years that they have resulted in the creation of a cloud of confusion rather than creating certainities.

Commercial changes have impact not just to the economy but to the society as a whole. Such is always been the case through the entire development of the journalism profession which includes 19th-century development.

Change has accelerated in the past years which affected some practices in our daily lives.
The Industrial Revolution heavily affected the United States during the nineteenth century, invoking changes in lifestyles, occupations, and even the economy. Many Americans drastically changed how they lived and how they worked, and the government had to change how it responded to certain events due to these new ways of life. We as a society have grown to an enormous extent, both domestically and across the globe. New forms of manufacturing have led to longer life expectancies, more conveniences than one can think of, and a lifestyle built around not having to make everything yourself. At the same time, the economy has grown considerably, creating various new job opportunities, encouraging immigration, and generally increasing the satisfaction
Throughout the history, human beings had experienced rises and falls in terms of the quality of life standards. What is seen as peculiar to the modern times is that the economic development began to rise constantly, by changing the speed among periods and regions. This economic growth was associated with certain proximate causes such as new techniques providing productivity and efficiency in functioning of machines and also of human capital. However, some deeper causes have been recognized recently, such as social and political institutional changes. In this paper, I will discuss this latter explanation, i.e. the institutional approach to economic growth by exemplifying two historical cases from the history of Ottoman Empire in the 19th century,
These characteristics, a complicated supply chain and wide availability of data make the industry a suitable avenue for an efficient supply chain.

Clothing styles have been constantly changing as time goes one. A major factor for this has been the process at which these clothes have been made. Just like the style of our clothing, the creation process for garments has been constantly been evolving. From the handmade past, to the mass produced future, clothing itself has been altered by the means of its creation. Before the Industrial Revolution, the creation of clothing was a time consuming and expensive process.
In today’s world, a lot of fast fashion is made pretty cheap. In the book, Sugar Changed The World, a description of slavery and the issue with sugar in the 18th and 19th centuries is displayed. In the movie True Cost, a description on the world of fast fashion today and the worker issues and production of the clothes are displayed, which are very similar to those of the sugar world. Producers do as much as they can to get work done at a cheap price, not thinking of the true cost on the workers. With sugar back in the 16th and 17th century, workers were treated similarly.
