Do I should look at the camera or I can just like normal talking? Like normal talking I think is more, Like I’ll talk to you, I won’t be like, “So Shirin, how are you?” Hi I’m Emily Keller and this is my friend Shirin Hello, hi everyone. She lives and works in fashion here in Shanghai, China. Yeah I think this kind of part of fashion is the people who not work in this industry they can’t imagine that. They don’t know… How much the industry is polluting the world? They don’t know. They buy a garment and they don’t know the backstory. That’s true. They don’t know who made it, maybe they don’t even know what country it was made in. They don’t know where the fiber, if it’s cotton where it came from, or if it’s wool, where it came from. What kind of dyes: chemical dyes, plant dyes. They don’t think about it. Just like you know recently some of the factories, they closed. It’s like a painting factory, dyeing factory. Because they polluted the dirty water Before nobody say that. And nobody close it. It’s because the environment is getting worse and worse. So I think they are doing something. But maybe still have a lot of things that need to be done. Look you can have a thinking, like uh, when you buy a garment, they’re going to fold it and put in the bag. Some a paper bag, and some a plastic bag. But you don’t know how many plastic bags behind it. It’s a lot. Yeah, like knitwear for example, When we start to buying the yarns, the raw material, it’s in a box. Mhm. It’s made by paper. Yes, like the cardboard boxes. And then, you make a swatch. Mhm. You have to deliver the yarn to the factory first and they make the swatch for you. Yep. And then they send it back. All the progress is full of the plastic bag, papers. A lot. Yeah a lot of stuff. I know. The plastic bags, it’s a lot. If you go to the factory, and you see how many plastic bags Because if you ship out ten thousand pieces, then that’s ten thousand plastic bags and they’re used one time and then they’re thrown away. Really it’s one time. When they ship the garments to the store, The sales just open it and hang it, yeah, they just throw all the plastic bags. I know. And then when you buy it they’re going to give you a new plastic bag. Yeah a new plastic bag. It’s a lot of trash. Definitely. A lot of consumers don’t think about these things. They don’t realize, and I think it’s also difficult for them to think about that. Yeah, because nobody, obviously not enough people are talking about it yet. So more people just need to talk about it so that consumers are aware of how wasteful the fashion industry can be. When you talk about fashion, it’s only how I look like when I dress this clothes. Right. Or how the garments look like. How cute I look in this new top. Yeah. It’s only like that. They don’t really talk about the story behind this. Like before the garment was made, everything it takes to make it, and then even after you throw a garment away, where does it go? Right if it’s like polyester or acrylic it doesn’t break down for a long time. All of the plastic pollutes our water the ocean. Yeah when you really think about these things, you will feel scary. Oh yeah. Yeah. That’s why I’m trying to keep my clothing for longer. Take good care of it. And I’m doing this thing where I’m not buying any clothes for one year. Wow. Trying, trying. I bought socks so far, but that’s it. But I’m trying not to buy any clothes. It’s a good challenge. Actually you don’t die if you don’t buy new garments. Yeah, and if you take care of what you have, I think it’s ok. Think about it, how long you wear a garment until it… falls apart, breaks. Not really. It won’t happen. It can easily last ten, twenty, sometimes thirty years you can have the same top. But if you say these things, some people will say I know it can last very long, but how about fashion Fashion is changing all the time. The trends. But then you have to buy things that are timeless. Not so trendy. Basic, really simple. Very classic. Classic colors, classic shapes. This is a good concept. What? Because it will be easy for designers. We don’t have to design. We don’t need to design. There’s nothing, our job is done. There’s nothing for us to design. But then we make no money. But then if we have no job. Wow. So you have to make sure we keep our jobs. They still need us. But it’s easy. Easy work. Make a detail, make all the trendy become very small detail. So they still need us. Just micro-change. I don’t think I’ll need to buy clothes. Yeah maybe two people come and they wear from far, you can see only two black T-shirts. Yeah. But actually, when you go close, you can see different. Different like details. Or like the finishing. Yeah also maybe the color, the tone. Some green black, some red black. Yeah could be. Just a little different. Actually it’s not easy to do that. That’s true, that’s true. It’s called The Fashion Run-Up. The Fashion Run-Up. Yeah. Subscribe! Maybe I take a picture. Oh yeah.
