Celebrities have been a major fashion influence since decades. Some famous celebrities are known to have their very own fashion brands. Clothing and other apparels worn by these celebrities are sure to become famous and sell out immediately. One such example is the clothing worn by the British royalty. Anything that they wear sells out quickly and becomes a big success. Although many designer brands approach them from time to time, they most wear English brands to promote the local businesses.

Although the fashion industry provides so much employment and GDP globally every year, it has its own downsides.In the United Kingdom consumers have as much as $47 million unworn clothes in their closets. All the clothes that are purchased at a bargain price are typically used or stays in one’s wardrobe for 2.2 to 3.3 years and are then thrown away. For something that stays in our possession for such a small amount of time takes typically 40 years to decompose, thereby harming the environment severely. This $3 trillion dollar industry can be utilized more efficiently and carefully if and only if the clothes are recycled and reused.
