Fast Fashion

Fast Fashion is the term used to describe the manufacturing and marketing method of designing high volumes of inexpensive clothes to meet the latest fashion trends.

The fast fashion cycle is far from sustainable. These brands aim to release as many new collections as possible to drive continuous consumption. Inevitably, this leads to depletion of the Earth’s natural resources at exponential rates, exploitation of workers around the world, and overwhelming amounts of waste production.

Sustainable Fashion

Sustainable Fashion is a term used to describe the way in which sustainable brands create clothing that not only reduces their impact on the environment, but also is mindful of the people who work to produce the garments. It describes the use of carefully thought-out manufacturing and processing methods employed throughout the lifespan of a garment – production, consumption, and disposal. The Sustainable Fashion Movement aims to reduce the large carbon footprint that fast fashion has created by reducing waste production, air pollution, water pollution, and climate change.

Our sustainability

At LA Designer Hire we support the Sustainable Fashion Movement by striving to invest in designer brands that use low impact, natural materials to produce their products. We also support small local businesses and designers, with the intention of recirculating money into the community to contribute to a positive economic structure.

You may ask, isn’t this still consuming? How does hiring with LA Designer Hire improve my carbon footprint? 

The answer: When the average lifespan of a garment is increased by 9 months, it’s carbon, water, and waste footprints are each reduced by 20-30%. This means, by hiring with LA Designer Hire you help extend the lifespan of our garments. So, not only do you get to feel confident wearing one of our garments, you reduce your environmental footprint and support the Sustainable Fashion Movement.

Hero Packaging

Not only do we support sustainability in our garments, but we are also eco-friendly in our packaging. All local pick-up orders are packed in brown recyclable paper bags and all postal orders are sent in Hero Packaging compostable mailers. 

Hero Packaging provides eco-friendly compostable mailers with double strips to be reused for return postal orders. They are biodegradable and eliminate the need for abundant plastic packaging.

To date, Hero Packaging have saved over 6,000,000 plastic mailers from entering the planet. How could we resist? We had to make the earth-saving decision and join to the Hero Pack Family.
