Are you a fan of fast fashion?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Many of us grew up flocking to Glassons, Hallenstein's, Cotton On and Just Jeans for our hardy perennials - jeans, t-shirts, summer dresses - and some of us still do.

But we're increasingly becoming aware that buying a $20 t-shirt that won't last the distance isn't that great … View more
Many of us grew up flocking to Glassons, Hallenstein's, Cotton On and Just Jeans for our hardy perennials - jeans, t-shirts, summer dresses - and some of us still do.

But we're increasingly becoming aware that buying a $20 t-shirt that won't last the distance isn't that great for the environment.

While some of us are pledging to only buy second hand or to invest in statement pieces - more expensive items that will last a long time- not all of us have that luxury.

We're wanting to speak to someone who isn't giving up their fast fashion any time soon, whether it's for economic or style reasons, personal choice or indifference to the environment. Maybe you're a student who likes the choice chain store fashion brings, or perhaps you're a parent whose children are growing too fast to risk splashing out on expensive clothing.

If this sounds like you, please email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz.

Hi I currently have a Rimu corner Hutch Dresser to sell.

It is 2metres tall and will fit into a corner with a 60cm clearance either side.
There are 2 opening glass doors 50cm high at the top, below them is an opening 45cm high followed by a drawer. Below the drawer are 2 rimu doors. Both sets of doors have one internal shelf.
It has a few age marks as it is a good few years old but still in quite good condition. Only selling as I don't have the room at the moment.

Call Judy if interested. 3848519. Sorry no camera or cell.
