In light of the current COVID-19 crisis, it will bring about huge shifts in the consumers’ mindset and the values that underpin their buying decisions. The emergence of a ‘less is more’ mindset should be adopted, with more considered consumption.
This will require products to focus more on versatility and longevity. In fashion especially, this will require a push away from vast quantities of clothing, prioritising the quality of each garment. We, as fashion consumers, will have to break our addiction to the need for speed and volume of fashion items.
Approaching a BUY LESS, BUY BETTER attitude
