In the fashion industry, McShopping has gone global - The Globe and Mail

invaded by the same global chains that have made the shopping streets of the world's great cities all start to look the same. In the main shopping districts of Paris, Madrid, London or Toronto, the invasion of the same global chains (e.g. Zara, H&M, Primark & Uniqlo) that have made the shopping streets of the world's great cities all start to look the same. It's destroying the visual identities of cities once visited for their unique charm.

The cheap-chic revolution has brought affordable fashion to the masses and, thanks to better monitoring of offshore factories, provided millions of decent jobs in developing countries. It also has its downsides. Massive amounts of "disposable" clothing end up in landfills each year. When clothes are this cheap, we don't think twice about chucking what we bought last month for something even trendier. Instead of four fashion seasons, we now have at least 12...... department stores are a dying breed. Those that survive will likely only do so by going global.

These 11 Brands Are Already Using Instagram’s New Zoom Feature | Adweek
Less than a month after launching Instagram Stories—the Facebook-owned app's version of the popular Snapchat feature, which strings together photos and videos for 24 hours—Instagram moved a step ahead of Snapchat on Wednesday by giving users the ability to zoom in while viewing photos and videos.
Now, iPhone users can now pinch photos and videos to get a closer look at them, and there's plans to roll out zoom for Android phones in the coming weeks.
And when a social platform introduces something fresh, brands always follow, whipping up posts that incorporate what's new. Red Tettemer O'Connell + Partners has already created posts for Morning Star Farms and Reyka Vodka using the feature, but marketers should be cautious before going-all in.
"With the zoom feature, there needs to be some inherent reason to look at an image closer to discover something, but that action of discovery still needs to connect to the brands messaging in some way or it'll just feel like a gimmick," said Steve O'Connell, ecd and partner at Red Tettemer O'Connell + Partners. "That said, eventually the novelty of zooming in will wear off, and it'll simply be another tool in a brand's Instagram arsenal to be used specifically, only in special instances."

Primark - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1973, when it opened its first English store in Derby, the first store outside Ireland, it couldn't use the name "Penneys" because J. C. Penney had the name registered. The name "Primark" was then invented to use outside Ireland.[5]

Where have all Britain’s shoppers gone? | Business | The Guardian
hopping is the national pastime. High streets, malls and retail parks have long been places people went for a day out, rather than on a mission to buy a particular item, and their spending helped lift the country out of recession. But a big drop in footfall – the number of people visiting high street and retail centres – over the past year has exposed fresh cracks in the high street, leaving retail chiefs wondering where all their customers have gone.

Analysts are reporting declines in the number of shopper visits to high streets and shopping centres around the country of as much as 10% in some cities over the past year. Worries about the economic outlook, coupled with the rise of internet shopping, jitters about the EU referendum and more spending on eating out and leisure leave little cash left over for splurging in the shops.

Greenpeace: Deutsche werfen selbst gut erhaltene Kleidung in den Müll - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Um bei Modetrends mithalten zu können, werfen viele Deutsche laut einer Greenpeace-Umfrage auch gut erhaltene Klamotten einfach weg. Etwa 40 Prozent der Sachen im Kleiderschrank werden fast nie getragen. [...] Denn laut einer Umfrage der Umweltschutzorganisation Greenpeace betrachten viele Deutsche Kleidung als Wegwerfware. Demnach hängen 5,2 Milliarden Kleidungsstücke in deutschen Schränken. Davon würden 40 Prozent sehr selten oder nie getragen, teilte Greenpeace mit. Jeder Achte trage seine Schuhe weniger als ein Jahr lang. Kaum jemand lasse Kleidung ausbessern. Für die Analyse wurden im September mehr als tausend Menschen zwischen 16 und 69 Jahren befragt. Mode sei zum Wegwerfartikel wie Einweggeschirr verkommen, fasste Greenpeace-Expertin Kirsten Brodde die Ergebnisse zusammen. Für wichtig werde gehalten, den schnell wechselnden Trends zu folgen.
