Fashion industry responds to climate change

Who knew haute couture would turn out to be the canary in the coal mine? Last month the Guardian newspaper reported fashion designers don’t bother to create heavy coats and other winter clothes any more because climate changed has shrunk demand for them.

Designer Narciso Rodriguez had this to say:

People aren’t really interested in heavy winter coats. They want year-round materials because the seasons have become so erratic.

Liz Walker, executive fashion editor at Marie Claire said

It’s definitely to do with climate change. Ten years ago you knew you were going to have to shoot coats and sweaters in Russia or Iceland, but nobody wants those clothes anymore.

If you don’t believe Al Gore or Greenpeace or your favorite blog about the impending cataclysm, you can at least trust your favorite fashionista.
