In an evermore increasing world of fashion production, labour costs, and demand from first world countries, how can the clothes we buy afford to get cheaper and cheaper? Anyone who takes a step back into the fashion production industry can see that things obviously don’t line up and someone/something is suffering. The True Cost is a movie documentary directed by Andrew Morgan that discusses this extensively.

There’s no other way to solve these problems if we don’t begin to solve them by our own means.
