28 Disposable Fashion Finds

From Sleek Biodegradable Shoes to Cardboard Sneakers

— August 30, 2014 — Eco
Fast fashion is purported to be quite disposable in nature but this collection of literally disposable fashion finds highlights the ways that designers are literally creating clothing and accessories that is meant to be thrown out. The fashion market is expanding at an exponential rate; brands are consistently scrambling to deliver product to retail locations at an accelerated rate to please shoppers. As concerns about sustainability rise, the concept behind many disposable fashion designs is to create something on-trend, but that can be easily recycled without guilt.

As mentioned, fast fashion is focused on providing shoppers with clothing that's ready for this season but likely not the next. As such, a shift towards disposable fashion denotes a preference for even faster fashion and the acceleration of trends to new highs.
