Fast Fashion Wares Contain Chemicals, Are Often Mislabeled

 

As part of the study, CCA tested 70 articles of clothing made by noted fast fashion brands, including Zara, Mango and Guess, which were purchased in-store in Beijing and Shanghai. Surprise, surprise: Over 30% failed to meet quality standards by exceeding various chemical content regulations.

 

"THE FASHION LAW - a leading source of breaking news, fashion law and the business of fashion."

 

Dewi •'s insight:

this is why we have to keep our eyes and ears open at all times.

”The Chinese consumer is now demanding, knowledgeable, savvy, sophisticated and also very price-conscious. There is sensitivity around appearing too ostentatious. Brands must be aware of this.”

 

It seems more and more people start to agree on this. So where are the new concepts? Where are the new ideas? Where are the new brands? Might China be the answer?

Is your hotel property boring and obsolete yet? 

Change, change, change... I keep talking about the need to keep moving together with the market and keep being given brand new photos of brand new hotel rooms that look like they did 15 years ago. Same room agencement, same principle of big reception desk with no staff where you have to wait for 20mins for check in or check out, same bathtub nobody ever uses and occupies huge space in the tiny bathroom, same towels that are too small and too rough, same boring obscure Guangdong Huizhou made bad quality formula with a luxury name  and that smells like green apple of synthetic green tea to shower with. 

 

Guests want to experience something different, eat something different, shower with something different. The world is already getting smaller fast enough, who cares to travel around the world to find the same things they already have at home?
