In France, they actually get a tax break if they burn their excess stock. What I meant by "slow fashion" is that when you buy a designer piece, it's supposed (emphasis on supposed) to last and be a timeless piece instead of being discarded after 1 season. So someone thinks they're investing in slow fashion since they think higher price = ethical working conditions, higher quality, lasting longer and thus more sustainable. Obviously this isn't true but how unsustainable they are isn't obvious to those uneducated about it. Also kind if related to thrifting, but apparently, there's so much clothes being donated that they end up in the landfill cause there's too much clothes for people to reuse.
I think her moving away from fast fashion is just another excuse for buying more designer brands since they're considered "slow fashion" and thus more "sustainable". To add onto your point, a lot these fashion houses burn excess stock to help maintain exclusivity, which is so wasteful. I also recently read an article how a lot of them don't actually pay stylists a salary but give them a voucher to spend in their stores instead. So while these stylists have all these designer things, they're actually struggling to pay their bills.
I typed a giant paragraph and then closed my browser rip. So here we go again. When brands send influencers free products, they technically don't have to talk about it. But let's be honest, brands are sending you these things because of your large social media following and influence over them. My friend was telling me that when La Mer was launching a new collection, they just sent the collection to a bunch of influencers because it's cheaper than ads and it can reach a wider audience. I'm not sure if you're aware of the drama in the beauty world, but apparently a bunch of influencers aren't disclosing the fact that their videos are sponsored. In fact, some of them are sponsored to give negative reviews of competitor brands. For anyone who's interested:
Yeah, I doubt she's going to put out better videos. She literally sits on her ass all day, makes shitty videos and still earns money. Until she starts losing a lot of money, I doubt she's going to change.
Can Joan make "fashion" videos that aren't hauls or what's in my bag? Didn't she say in one video that she was thinking about making videos on how to style certain clothing pieces (like Aimee Song's Style by Number.) Not that I want to take fashion advice from Joan but I'm tired of seeing the seeing the same things in all her bags and her boring haul videos. Korea is on the rise in the fashion world and Joan should take advantage of that. Maybe Joan can introduce to us some less known Korean brands, interview designers and models, etc.
I'm not sure if it's different in Hong Kong, but in mainland China, it's very common for the grandparents of the baby to help out while the parents work and stuff. If Tom's parents are in Hong Kong, I'm sure they'll be happy to help Taylor take care of the baby.
The simple t-shirt and jeans look really suits her. I think it was taken from a low angle, which makes Joan appear taller and then Joan photoshopped it too. Her forearm appears really long compared to her upper arm.
