The main purpose of this article is to explain what sustainability is and why it is

so important now more than ever. Also, this article gives an idea to the reader what fast

fashion really is; low cost clothing in a fast pace market. This article questions if luxury

brand clothing can compete with fast fashion, while being sustainable.

This source relates to my topic because it examines the authority of fast fashion

and why consumers have a desire to purchase it. I plan to use the information in this

article to explain why consumers act the way they do while using the consequences of

fast fashion as a means to influence otherwise.

retail industrys disaster, the collapse of Rana Plaza. This is a large point I want to focus

on because I believe that this specific instance resulted in retailers actually realizing that

in order for the retail industry to remain reputable, they have to make a change in the way

they obtain product from non-ecofriendly/labor-friendly manufacturers.
