"For years, luxury brands have escaped the same level of scrutiny shown to fast fashion labels regarding their environmental practices. Hidden behind prestigious labels, there is a consumer assumption that the higher the price for an item, the more sustainable it is. This is not the case, as we see greenhouse gas emissions increasing over the years from some of the biggest names in the luxury fashion sector. There are also gaps in the data available because many luxury brands fail to disclose the details of their complex global supply chains, making it impossible to see the full scale of the problem. For a truly sustainable future, we need to hold luxury brands accountable for their impacts on people and the planet, just like fast fashion."
