French Designer Is Going Against The Fashion Industry

The fashion industry is once again under fire for its waste, but this time it’s by one of its own.

Jean Paul Gaultier, a “French haute couture and prêt-à-porter fashion designer who, in 1982, founded his eponymous fashion label,” has recently discussed the fashion industry and its “ridiculous” amounts of waste. And with this opinion, he isn’t alone, as the discussion of waste, the fashion industry, and sustainability has been one in the forefront for years now.

Gaultier has insisted that the next show he holds will focus on “recycling,” a move that is becoming more popular by the day as designers focus on themes like sustainability. Some of the other designers included in a sustainable fashion category include Stella McCartney, Lynda Grose, Vivienne Westwood, Eileen Fisher, Rag & Bone, Mara Hoffman, DÔEN, and Christy Dawn.

We are thrilled that the fashion industry is beginning to call out and change its wasteful ways, and many are also singing the praise of those who step up to do and design the same way.
