Call in to speak with the host
Bridgette will be welcoming Elizabeth Cline, author of Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion to the show to disucss her book and the devastatingly high costs of cheap fashion on the environment, the fashion industry and the consumer by tracing the rise of budget clothing chains, the death of middle-market and independent retailers, and the roots of our obsession with deals and steals.
Joining us will also be our regular retail correspondent, retail expert Mercedes Gonzalez who will share her insider take on fast fashion, the effect it has had on the fashion industry, and how fast fashion may just be the thing itself that saves the industry from the perils of cheap clothes.
Also, Dobbin Clothing, a new clothing company that prides itself on being domestically produced with quality fabrics and construction will be joining us to talk about what they're doing to create success in a fast fashion obsessed world.
It's good to talk.
