Topshop, H&M, Boden, Primark and dozens of other retailers have halted orders immediately. (Benedictus, 2013).
'It is not going to change overnight,' he said. (Reddy in Burke, 2013).
H&M said: "We are willing to pay more so that the supplier can pay higher wages. It is a collaboration between H&M and our suppliers." (Farrell, 2013).
INDUSTRY SCRAPBOOK - pink coats are in
The reason fashion magazines have been excited over the M&S coat is because various high-end designers all made pink coats this season. Now, this kind of serendipitous synchronicity among designers does nothing to disabuse me of my belief that what we call "trends" are actually "evil plots cooked up by designers who scheme together ahead of time to make similar colours and clothes to convince the public that in order to look up to date we need to buy their wares." (Hadley-Freeman, 2013f).
Brookes says that there are three elements to proving passing off. The claimant needs to have established a reputation. The defendant needs to have misled the public. And third, there needs to have been damage. "I suspect that the argument will be that for every person who buys a Topshop Rihanna T-shirt it does them out of a sale of an official one," (Coccoza, 2013a).
The herds eat up the grass that previously supported antelopes, wild asses and their predators. Further problems were retaliatory killings of leopards and wolves by herders after livestock attacks, the killing of wild animals by herders' dogs and the transfer of disease from livestock to wild animals. (Carrington, 2013).
electronic tags have been woven into garments and accessories so that, when these are held up in front of special screens in store, moving images appear, showing the same item on the catwalk.
The long hours among machinery and toxic chemicals – some workers sleep in the factories – take their toll. Most complain of eye, respiratory, cardiac and skin problems, as well as frequent accidents. (Burke, 2013).
INDUSTRY SCRAPBOOK - size zero
When it comes to who should be blamed for the portrayal of overly thin models, magazine editors are in the direct line of fire, but it is more complex than that. The "fit" model begins the fashion process: designer outfits are created around a live, in-house skeleton. Few designers have a curvy or petite fit model. These collections are then sent to the runway, worn by tall, pin-thin models because that's the way the designer wants to see the clothes fall. There will also be casting directors and stylists involved who have a vision of the type of woman they envisage wearing these clothes. For some bizarre reason, it seems they prefer her to be young, coltish, 6ft tall and built like a prepubescent boy. (Clements, 2013).
