Everything Comes At A Cost,Polished Shiny Glass Is Not A Diamond !!
Dark Side Of Fashion
I have been so curious for so long and tried many time to take the people reviews that what People think about fashion? How this industry works and where it will be taking us and our generation towards? So soon I come to know about the dark side of fashion Industry. As always there are two sides of everything. Fashion also has it behind the Limelight something dark is hidden . Everyone in today's time is willing to work in fashion, As there is no shortage of young talent, new faces. There do consequences and challenges face by Models & People who are working at the back end in Fashion Industry do really suffer. There are tonnes of task are going behind the shiny/ decorated doors of fashion Industry. If I talk about the back end team like photographers, model, stylist, make up artist gets summoned.
Fresher in fashion industry do really hard work for whole day they are dedicated for the fashion houses while making their mind that they will be getting exposure at work with better pay scale while enjoying publicity . But everything turns to dark when someone enters Industry, the term changes into 'it’s not who you know, it’s who you blow’ . One more truth of fashion industry is Nepotism, all those faces which we see and get inspire to become a part of this Industry, they all belong fat families. So, it will be really rare cases of challenges which we will be listening. If someone is not a part of Nepotism and still they have publicity, so, it's really easy to know that person has studied abroad or belongs to fat family. I don't understand that students from middle class pay a lot in the studies after that they do internship as well still do not get paid or if somehow they get paid that is not enough to survive the critical situations of life, back end team never get chances to come in front and don't get expected money as well, not even half of which they have spend on their studies, from outside the gate we think that if there is a big building there must be a happy crowd who is living inside those walls. But what may come as a surprise to many is that this dark side exists not only for the poorer people involved in the fashion industry, but for some that may be envied for their positions in it. Despite all the potential threatening, pressure, unpaid work and long hours, ‘average’ people will tolerate all of these obstacles in their struggle to get ahead in fashion and possibly become famous in one of the world’s most elite industries. Much to their dismay, however, they will often find the most desired jobs will be given to those who don’t need’ the money, such as children of celebrities, trust fund kids, wives of millionaires and celebrities themselves.
Sad Side Of Modelling
Modelling is one more big name in the fashion industry which highlights the public faces.
We as an ordinary people like to see the pretty faces wearing beautiful clothes and walking around us who inspires us to buy those clothes which she is wearing or he is wearing, but the truth is that this is the fashion industry and models do get treated as a 'slave' in this industry they do get play badly with their skin, hair and their body as well. Everyone uses them like a doll and truly they don't get paid for their work also if we talk about Big Fashion Week like "New York Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week" and many more do not pay models at all and all the expenses which has to be done necessarily everything is on the head of Model itself. Models are not allowed to eat because they cannot put on weight and cannot go for extra calories, they need to be really perfect with their looks, body and so on if they put on half inch also, they can be rejected. There are higher possibilities for model to get into the "sex work or to get addicted of drugs, smoke to maintain the lives". They also get molested and force to remove there clothes which can make them feel ashamed.What else you think that there can be 'darker side of the fashion industry'. In well known, "high-end fashion and media houses, horror stories of (sometimes criminally) insane employers, soul-crushing working hours and exhausting work for no pay show no signs of subside". While it is noble and right to pressure companies to treat fashion employees fairly in foundry, The time to discuss how badly employees in the fashion industry are treated in developed countries is now. We’ve become modern fashion slaves, quite literally. Don’t we deserve to be treated with dignity, too?
Hopeless Labor In Fashion Industry
"Fashion Industry Is Getting Failed To Fix The Labor Issues" !!
Worker exploitation is uncontrolled,in the global fashion industry according to countless
survey, investigation and reports. So, Why fashion houses not coming up with the solution on this act. If brand want to be the part of the investigation or solution. They get obstruct by the legal rules. The problem is if brands are to remove labor exploitation, they must have more control on their supply chains, which can take them to open themselves up to the risk of tremendous legal liability. To bring real change in the global fashion industry, the countries need to reconsider their legal policies where brands are headquartered . The existing liability rules need to be revised to boost the brands’ direct involvement in labour issues in their chains. Over the past few decades, the production process for garments (and other things) has evolved and has become 'very complicated'.
Labour Issues In Fashion Industry Are:
Composite Global Chains and Cheap Labour Garment production can be easily dispersed. This means that firms in developed countries can outsource to developing countries, while those in developing countries can move production within and between countries in search of cheaper labour. Individuals and small enterprises, however, don’t have this mobility, so they must compete for work in an insecure environment.
Humiliated Forces & Working Conditions In 2012, 'The Informal Economy Monitoring' study coordinated by WIEGO, examined the grounded realities of informal workers in several categories, including home-based workers. In Bangkok (Thailand), Ahmedabad (India), and Lahore (Pakistan), garment workers were among those who participated in surveys and focus group discussions. IEMS provides insight into the realities home-based garment workers face in those cities.
Minimum Wages Most homeworkers in the garment and textile industry are paid by the piece (according to how many items they produce), earn very little, and do not receive overtime pay. Most of the time receive no sick leave or paid vacations.
Helpless In Economic Drop Home-based garment workers in the IEMS were directly affected by larger economic trends such as the global recession. In Ahmedabad, for example, global recession had a significant and lingering impact on the garment sector. Many garment workers had no work for months and work volumes remained low in 2012. Almost half said work orders had decreased over the years.
These global chain include all the necessary process to cycle - "designing, making, selling, and sometimes even recycling". When it comes to the relationship between these vast networks of 'suppliers and the law', there is a connection between responsibility and liability. Generally, a brand is only legally responsible for the actions of suppliers if the brand directly controls that supplier. In a global value chain, most suppliers are typically outside of the brand’s direct control.
There Are Abundant Issues, Which Is Not Getting There Outcome For So Long, Labour Is Facing Challenges !!
