Fast Fashion

The fast fashion market emerged in the 1990’s and has grown substantially over the last two decades.  However, it has its detractors and is seen as lacking sustainability credentials.  The aim of this course is to give learners an understanding of the size and structure of the multi-billion dollar fast fashion market as well as an insight into both the major brands that dominate it as well as some of the newer fast-growing e-commerce brands.
