The Swedish retailer announced last week that it’s taking a giant leap in the transparency category, launching full transparency details for all garments sold on hm.com. In 2013, H&M was the first global fashion retailer to publish their supplier list online. In 2017 a transparency layer for the Conscious Exclusive garments was added on ht.com. The company writes:
“For each of our garments, we now share details such as production country, supplier names, factory names and addresses as well as the number of workers in the factories. In addition, customers can find out more about the materials used to make a specific garment. By sharing extended details on where our garments are made we make it easier for customers to make more informed choices when shopping. “

H&M Studio’s spring summer 2019 collection is inspired by the ‘glam explorer’. Sounds like my own GlamTribal collection to me. Lachlan Bailey captures top model Anna Ewers in Sedona, in advance of H&M’s post-Paris Fashion Week Fall 2019 presentation. March 11-13.
This is one strategy for making the post fall 2019 collections fashion press a captive audience, ready for some R&R in Georgia O’Keeffe country. Not only will the fashion pack breathe some fresh, feminist artist Sedona air. They will be in woolly mammoth country, a topic near and dear to my heart.
