A lot of people have asked me: why are designer garments so expensive? There are many reasons why such as:
1. Better quality in fabric, craftsmanship and details. Many of these designers searched for the best possible fabrics and materials to use, some even developed and created their own color, textures and prints.
2. Ideas and originality of the designs. These designers spent a lot of time developing their collections: from mood boards, concepts, sketches, draping, pattern making, sample making, runway, to productions. These process takes months. Meanwhile, fast fashion companies sent their “designers” to copy high end designers from their show and produce them as fast as 2 weeks.
3. Manufacturers. Most of these high end companies use manufacturers in countries that provide better working environment and living wage to their employees.
These are just a few reasons why - so I would like to encourage you to start doing more research of what you buy and wear. ❤️
