If you are still unaware why I am asking this question? For your information forever 21 is bankrupt now. However, the insolvency of this giant fast-fashion brand limelight hashtags fast fashion sucks, RIP fast fashion, etc. This is happening due to high consequences of fast fashion on the environment.
Yes… My dear friend a cloth can disturb the ecological balance don’t worry I will tell you how. As we all know that whole world is at stake due to environmental changes. It includes damage of Ozone layer, rise in temperature, etc are the primary factors that endanger the living species on earth. I know that there is so much info given in small space and many of you may not be able to understand each point clearly. To make it more clear let’s explore each point and start with Forever 21.
Bankruptcy of Forever 21
Yes, Forever 21 that holds more than 800 stores in three continents is facing reduction in profit.
Due to that least profit stores will be closed down. Forever 21 is known for its fast-fashion clothing range believed to be popular in young men and women groups.
I said believed as low profits are a sign of low sales meaning low demand. If a brand having low demand how can it be popular. It is also said that Forever 21 rents 1.5 million square feet for 99 spaces making collateral damage in retail space if Fast fashion giant closes its operation completely.
Well its a slowdown phase different industries facing a slowdown including automobiles, the garment sector still a winner but its segments like fast fashion are facing a slowdown. Apart from Forever 21, Zara, H&M, Boilersuits reported decreasing sales in last two years. The time span is big so the fashion house is but a continuous fall in sale means its the trend may be the next shut down is on its way.
