10 Important things you should know about the retail industry. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/Hnoaw3 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There is something that influences us every day, and you might not even be paying attention. That would be the fashion industry. There is a supply and demand for the latest trends, and it has an effect on not only us but also the rest of the world. From what we see in the magazines to how our clothing is made, these are ten things fashion designers don’t want you to know. Have you noticed that the same brands always seem to pop up in your favorite fashion magazines? That may have something to do with designer gifting. This is a well-known fact in the industry, but many consumers don’t know that labels are pulling favors from bloggers and magazine editors by giving them freebies. This used to be just designer goods, but now it is so much more. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheTalko Twitter: https://twitter.com/thetalko Instagram: https://instagram.com/the_talko ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.thetalko.com/

It's not only (pointy) heels: conventional shoes actually don't have the natural shape of a foot at all.

How some of these outfits can be classed as 'fashion' is beyond me when they're hideous.

No, a size 12 in 1958 would be a size 0 today, not 6! Look at your own frickin' chart!

Eliminate child labor, eliminate food on the table for these families. If they aren't working and eating, they are dying. Every industrialized nation had child labor. the ideal is to work past child labor then move into the middle class.

I’m sorry I just don’t like child labor. Yes stop the child labor.
Caitlan Levesque (5 months ago)
Child labor needs to stop 🛑! It is illegal and is still happening in places in the world. My teacher showed us news and talked about how kids would be used. They would be used to mine gold and have a 24 hour shift with my drinks. They would also be underground where it was hard to breathe and they would take turns. Child labor isn’t okay and people are so rude. On the news they also said people were paying money to pay for a child, then they would use them for child labor.😓😔😞 I just hate how people use children and that some products are made from children in bad working conditions. The children are payed little money an hour or no money at all. Whether that is the case or not child labor is NEVER OKAY!

Simple solution for sizing issues. Size women's clothes (especially pants) like men's clothes, by inches, not an arbitrary number. Put how many inches round a garment is right on the label. We women can measure ourselves, or have a friend help us, and viola, we can grab the right sized clothes when we find them. Very easy, rational solution.

We are talking about fashion and it crumbles into a fight about obesity and bodies. So petty...we're all brainwashed into being anxious about our bodies.

I refuse to buy clothes "on trend" these cropped tops and shorts with less material than my undies aren't cute to me.... don't give me less material and have the audacity to charge the same price as a full shirt!!!! I'm too old to be flashing my belly around and modesty is clearly not trending can't wait for self respect to come back in style

The bead one is stupid. It’s not just beads. Forever21, h&m, Victoria’s Secret, Nike, and so many other huge name brands use child labor. And makeup? That shimmery glitter and shine in any makeup is a result of child labor as well, among other things. If you’re going to create these lists, at least do it properly.

I'm a fashion historian, and I frankly find most modern "fashion" to be absolutely awful (and yes, some styles in the past were pretty awful, too.) Most runway styles are NOT designed to make women look beautiful; only to be so weird that the designer gets attention. Who wants to see a bunch of malnourished, exploited 14-year-olds wearing burlap sacks or some other exaggerated nonsense? Don't be a sheep. Wear what looks good on YOU, and tell the fashion industry where to go. If more people would do this, more designers would actually start designing clothes that looked good on real humans.

I still have some clothing from 10 years ago or longer. Mostly because the supposedly cheap clothing isn't really cheap.
Annemarie Fleming (6 months ago)
Don't be fooled by fashion labels by well-known designers. I went into Harrod's and Harvey Nicholl's in London, and the elite designers had dresses displayed with buttons missing, badly-stitched seams, and uneven hems. Obviously I didn't buy! I've also seen more affordable items by less prestigious designers that were well-made and proved to be long-lasting and comfortable, as well as looking good. Not every woman wants to look weird, wearing catwalk-style items.

I have bought one new item each year over that last 5 years. This year I bought 3 new pair of underwear. Last year I bought a sundress. The sundress I bought from the girl down the street who just graduated from design school. Best dress I have ever bought.

The designers are sizing themselves out of business. I’m 5ft 3 and weigh 105. Back in the eighties I could find plenty of clothing that fit but today sometimes even the zeros aren’t small enough. Please go back to the true sizing. You are creating a real problem for those of us who are small.

The one talko video with some good information. Maybe instead of the typical tripe you can do a video with information about ethically sourced merchandise.

I'm glad that this is all happening now that I'm in my late 20s. Most of us stopped "keeping up". I still have clothes I wore ten years ago and they hold up. I *never* buy anything that I expect to last "only a couple of seasons" let alone ONE season. Is this an American trend only???

I find it hilarious how that so much of TheTalko's info is incorrect!...... And yet I still go back to watch more....But seriously... Chemicals in clothing - should we go nude?Pointy shoes - Ugh, don't get me started. They are butt-ugly.Not hating, just stating.

I know very well about the chemicals on clothing. New jeans always give me eczema on my inner thighs because of it.

Just like the sneaker or trainer industry. There seems to be super cheap or super expensive (made cheaply). Constantly tricking consumers into over spending or over consuming their inane products. The wedding dress is the perfect example of over pricing but made cheaply. Vera Wang and the like, more often than not, can't even be dry cleaned without discoloring and tearing of the fabrics and threads. The whole cycle is just pathetically sad. They day we all stop giving a damn what the next Kardashian nonsense is wearing and start caring about something important, will be the day we actually evolve as a species. Okay rant over.

I have a 17 year old who wears anything from a size 0 to a size 4. It's all in the manufacturer sizing. There is a such thing called vanity sizing. That's when the manufacturers Jake a size 14 and call it a size 12. I've long since stopped looking at sizes of clothing. I wear what fits and what I like. And I sure don't throw it out because last week it was in this week it's not.

Following trends is just silly, wear what you like and what looks good on you. Comfort matters too.
Ellen Sue (6 months ago)
Sadly when you go to the stores & I mean the cheapo shops as well as the high priced stores...ALMOST ALL the clothing is made in foreign countries by child labor that are making slave wages....so why pay more. I found the clothing from places like Bloomies or L&T don't wear any better than the clothing from Forever 21. Sad but true!

JudyBarrette (7 months ago)
I do not follow fashion trends. It is waist of time and money. When I buy something I expect to get 5 years out of it. I have leather boots I have worn for the past 17 years. They barely look worn. That's what I call an investment. I have a color scheme for the winter and one for spring and fall and one for summer. I mix and match. I buy a few new pieces each season. Done. I aim for comfort in flattering colors. I expect quality even if I do not buy expensive clothes.

Wages in Bangladesh vs USA = low pay w/ way too stupid high living expenses. In any country on this planet. You are assuming we are supposed to care. W/out "cheap" clothing, the fashion industry would not make their money off of the backs of the working class. Clothing designed lines for free. True. WTF? Although, the clothing designers: 'gay men who hate thier mothers' could be more mindful of us ladies. Just saying.

Cost of living in Bangladesh is $1400 a month?? - what's your source? If correct, the American dream of spending more than you earn has indeed conquered the world. I don't spend or need that much, and I live in Germany!

Consumers are also to blame for the excessive amount of high heels and pointy-toed shoes. If you stop wearing stupid shoes that literally damage your nerves the fashion industry will make less of them. Oh, and pointy-toed shoes also make your toes squish together, changing the way the bones sit. I wear comfortable and proper shoes because I have a medical condition which causes chronic pain throughout my whole body including my feet. It's simply stupid to wear shoes that damage your feet.

The main problem I have is that anymore MOST shirts I see are so sheer they're see threw! It doesn't matter if it's a Walmart shirt, Macy's (altho they're not as bad as some) or even Maurice's (I live in a small town ok those are the only choices). I would rather pay a few extra dollars to be able to buy ONE shirt that actually covers me instead of having to buy 2 and yes sometimes 3. I'm sorry but not all of us want to put our undergarments on display for all to see. I've even seen this issue is some bottoms. There was a skirt I liked but when I tried it on you could clearly see threw it.

Which is why I don’t follow trends. Also because I don’t want to be just like everybody else. Saw 4 girls in the same exact romper on the same day and then 2 other girls in the same exact tracksuit in the same mall. Eeeek.

"Did you know that manufacturers use chemicals in every step of making your clothing?" Yes, because everything is made of chemicals. I am made of chemicals, you are made of chemicals, the most natural and organic things are entirely chemical. Water is a chemical; oxygen is a chemical. That's like saying "did you know that there is gravity in every room in your house?"

If you stop buying things that use child labor, you're not going to have to stop at beads, or clothes. And not buying doesn't stop this. These children are making a slave labor in horrible conditions, but they are surviving. You take their job away, they are left with few options. Being trafficked, dying, bro trying to find another factory job. It is not so simple. You aren't solving a problem with refusing to shop at places that use child labor, the issue is far larger. I have worked with children who have been sold into sex slavery by their parents because they lost their job, and that's a very common story with these exploited children. So don't pat yourself on the back for not shopping at these places, because you aren't helping anyone. We need to make and enforce stricter workers rights laws in these countries, engaging governments on what they need to do to address the issue. The best way to eradicate child labor is to provide better livelihoods for parents that allow them to send their children to school rather than work. Working on economic troubles. Making school cheaper and more accessible. Teaching about the importance of education, for all ages and genders. Support groups like StopChildLabor.eu. Safe conditions, higher wages, better hours. Nike is Vietnam's biggest employer, think of what happens to a countries economy if their largest employer goes under. More people, more desperate for work will lead to people having less power and companies having more. They will make less money and be in worse conditions. It's a very complicated problem and it can't be fixed the way this girl describes. And even if the company says they don't use them in their factories, or they only have factories in America, they often still buy parts or sections of assembly from places that do use this form of labor. Consumer advocacy groups in the west also aren't going to improve working conditions in the developing world: Western markets simply don’t matter as much as they used to. India produces twice as much clothing for its own consumers as it does for us. Fifty-six percent of the clothing produced in China is for the Chinese market. Both of those numbers are only going to grow. The key is finding the specific points where applying pressure can provoke systemic effects. Also, it's not just beading, most people would be surprised at how many companies use child or slave labor. Your laptop, phone, vegetables, clothes, shoes, car. Victorias Secret, GAP, H&M, Nestle, Walmart, Apple, Disney, Hershey, Forever 21, Mars, Cabury, Kraft, Kit-Kat, Aldo, Nike, Adidas, Aeropostale, Toys R Us, Starbucks. And it's not just big companies, "Those small-batch, hemp-woven Daisy Dukes you bought in Dumbo are far more likely to be made in a sweatshop than your $7 H&M gym shorts." It's even as simple as saying Walmart owns a factory in Asia that uses slave labor. Here’s how Walmart's products ended up at Tazreen, a factory that uses slave and child labor, Wal-Mart hired a megasupplier called Success Apparel to fill an order for shorts. Success hired another company, Simco, to carry out the work. Simco—without telling Success, much less Wal-Mart—sub-contracted 7 percent of the order to Tazreen’s parent company, the Tuba Group, which then assigned it to Tazreen. Two other sub- (or sub-sub-sub-) contractors also placed Wal-Mart orders at Tazreen, also without telling the company. http://highline.huffingtonpost.com/articles/en/the-myth-of-the-ethical-shopper/

This video is so frustrating for me. I'm in fashion and while yes there are things that sucks about the fashion industry allot of this stuff is just not true. Fashion companies would love to have less seasons and go back to quality products but when you have a consumer that considers you out of touch if you don't have new merchandise every week and will ditch you to buy something cheaper somewhere else there's allot of pressure to create cheaper clothes or go out of business. And yes allot of companies outsource to cheaper places however it provides money to their works and the $1 they get comes out to a weeks worth of pay when you factor cost off living in those areas

"No labels pay attention to the older generations"... thats complete bullshit. There are thousands, and probably millions, of designers out there. MANY companies focus on older aged women. America is a capitalistic society, you see the brands that sell the most.

That video clip of the little boy crying while being interviewed by the blonde woman has nothing to do with fashion. She was asking him if he was sad that his dad -- in the military -- was going away. How could you just use his sadness for something totally different? I'm a journalist and your reporting style is dishonest and superficial.
