    Buying clothes has never been easier. 80 billion items are manufactured every year. We’re putting too much product out there, most of that product ending up in landfill.

China has for decades been the world’s largest exporter of textiles and apparel, but China is changing thanks to a slightly shrinking workforce in China, and rising demands for wages and better working conditions, China is finding itself paying more and more to workers and therefore manufacturing in China itself is becoming less and less competitive. China is very wisely moving upmarket in the types of things it manufactures. Now I’m not saying that China will stop being an…

    It is my great privilege to welcome Jeanne Beker host of CTV’s Fashion Television and Bonnie Brooks CEO and President of the Bay I am so thrilled to be here for for so many different reasons there’s a lot of sentimentality attached to this place for me because I was a student here the first year they launched the media arts program. What was it that really turned you on about marketing and and that particular business? The thing that I learned was that the power of the media combined with the power of a great item in a great range of colors really has some strength that you know…

    Redbird Vintage Box – March Unboxing

    Hello everyone! Kat here and I’ve got…a box! This is going to be the Redbird Vintage Box monthly subscription box unboxing. How many times can I say box? If you want to count in this video, let me know in the comments down below how many I come up with. I’m actually kind of curious now. Anyways, so I received my Redbird Vintage Box and I got the same size as I usually do, it’s the Laurene, which is their largest box. It’s $100 plus shipping, which is $10 so it comes out to be $110. And it looks smaller than usual. Am I crazy or is it a little…
