La Fille Colette
La Fille Colette was created for a feminine and strong woman who seeks versatile, polished pieces to take her from day to night with elevated garments that retain an easy-to-wear accessibility.
Here are some realities of the fast fashion industry and what La Fille Colette is doing to counter them:
- 95% of the clothing Americans bought in the 1960s was made in the US. Today, Americans only make 3%. La Fille Colette garments are Made in America, helping to restore the garment industry and keep manufacturing jobs in the US.
- The majority of the estimated 40 million people who work in the garment industry make less than $3 a day. La Fille Colette pays fair living wages every step of the way.
- The fashion industry is second only to the oil industry in how much pollution it causes worldwide. La Fille Colette's dresses are made in small batches, ensuring minimal waste and less excess inventory and their fabric scraps are recycled.
- Today, we buy 400% more clothing than we did 20 years ago and the average American throws out 82 lbs of textile waste yearly. By making clothes that are meant to last year, in styles that will last just as long, they are standing up to the harmful notion that fashion should be disposable instead of cherished.
