For decades, the fashion industry has focused on sourcing the right product at the right price—and where that product can be found. Recently, however, the industry takes a look at issues other than the “where” and the price. Today, the right product meets the consumers’ needs not just for price, but also for design and quality and speed. And often, the right product must be produced in an ethical, sustainable way—even if it increases the price.
