As the world becomes increasingly aware of the catastrophic environmental impact of the textile and clothing industry, a new documentary uncovers the true cost of fast fashion. With 100 billion items produced every year and international companies competing to win higher profits, the sector is forecast to grow by 60 per cent by 2030.
Through interviews with experts, factory workers and consumers, the documentary reveals the stark contrast between the glamour of the fashion industry and the brutal reality of life behind the scenes. From exploitation and precarious work conditions to the devastating effects on the planet, the film sheds light on the dark side of an industry built on throwaway culture. This is a must-see for anyone who wants to understand the true cost of the clothes we wear – and the price paid by those who make them.
