Statistics report about the fast fashion industry in Europe
This report presents an array of statistics and facts about the fast fashion industry in Europe. It opens with a chapter that gives an overview of the clothing market with an emphasis on fast fashion, including 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 a chapter on 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 report provide supplier figures of leading European fashion retailers, as well as the environmental impact of discarded clothing and textile items in Europe.
