A gripping investigative documentary about the world of low-cost fashion and its impact on human rights and the environment.
The planet is being overwhelmed with clothes. Close to 56 million tonnes of clothes are sold every year. In Europe, the amount has almost doubled since the year 2000. Thanks to fast disposable fashion, you can constantly renew your wardrobe for little money. But producing clothes at such a low price has a very high environmental cost: Textiles are the second most polluting industry in the world, after oil.
Creating a dress for ten euros in Europe, in less than a fortnight, is impossible, but it is becoming the norm. Since the fashion industry went down the path of fast fashion, it is all about faster and cheaper – no matter the consequences.
Since 2019, DESIGNKINO has been an integral part of MCBW, adding to the program with international documentaries on design, creation, architecture, photography, fashion and much more.
