Statista Dossier about the fast fashion industry in Europe

This dossier presents an array of statistics and facts about the fast fashion industry in Europe. The dossier opens with a chapter that lays out key financial and operational figures of Europe-based fast fashion companies. Then, in order to give a better understanding of trade flows between Europe and leading global clothing importers, it includes manufacturing and international trade figures for clothing and textile items.

Fast fashion is characterized by an abundance of clothing production as driven by leading fashion brands, and the increasingly shrinking lifespan of clothing products. The remaining chapters of the dossier provide supplier figures of leading European fashion retailers, as well as the environmental impact of discarded clothing and textile items in Europe. The dossier concludes with a section on consumer perspectives on the ethical and environmental aspects of the fashion industry.
