Hence, our illicit love of fast fashion — the stolen-from-the-runway buys that are the fashion equivalent of junk food: cheap-ish, temporarily satisfying, yet always leaving you hungry for more.

Photo by Maria del Rio By Alden Wicker Before I buy any piece of clothing or accessory, I like to know a little bit about where and how it’s made. According to a study that came out earlier this month, not only do most people choose to remain willfully ignorant of the conditions in which their clothing is made, they also look down on the type of consumers who do care.

ASOS just announced that it will launch a line of bridal gowns in March, just in time for spring weddings. The 18-piece collection has something for almost any style bride — and, praise be, there’s not a single meringue dress in the lot.

Prices on the collection will range from about $90 to $380, making these some of the most affordable bridal gowns on the market anywhere (save for a really lucky find at Kleinfelds).

John Oliver Takes Fast Fashion to Task on “Last Week Tonight” On Sunday night’s episode of HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the comedian devoted nearly his entire show to an issue he says we’ve “cared about sporadically since the ‘90s.” He’s talking about fast fashion, the proliferation of incredibly inexpensive clothes turning over at record speed and the public’s apparent lack of interest in where they come from, and how they’re made.
