In addition to being several steps ahead of the American fashion game, European fashion has several other advantages over American-made clothes. Many of these advantages make European clothing not only a fashionable choice, but the eco-friendliest choice as well.
In Europe, clothes are well-made and designed to be timeless. Fabrics are higher quality, and garment construction is more thoughtful. This means that consumers are less likely to need to buy new clothes every season—unless they want to, that is! But, with clothing designed to hold up rather than break down (unlike the fast fashion industry that rules the US market), that means less clothing ends up in landfills. If the clothing does get thrown away, it degrades and breaks down more easily because of the use of more eco-friendly fabrics.
European designers are less likely to utilize cheap factor labor as a part of their construction process. This allows them to take a more thoughtful, controlled approach to the construction of their garments. It is also a more ethical choice because cheap labor usually equates to laborers not being paid adequately for their work. Choosing to shop European brands ensures that you’re getting a quality garment that is also ethically sourced and made.
As mentioned above, European clothing tends to be ahead of it’s time, and often serves as look-ahead at what mainstream fashion will be in a few years. This also contributes to the sustainability aspect of European fashion, because they will be trendy now and later.
