About Me

Sustainable Fast Fashion is created by Philip Yu to explain the social and environmental issues tackled by fast fashion companies. Philip, a senior at Davidson College, has studied corporate social responsibility in different industries, including financial institutions and fast fashion, for over a year and is current enrolled in a Politics of Information course with Dr. Graham Bullock. This metric is free of influence from fast-fashion companies as neither the developer nor the college has a financial relationship with this industry. The eight categories used for this metric were established without any input from the fashion industries. Instead of serving the fashion industry, this metric is developed with consumer’s interest in mind by having a transparent methodology and data sourcing so users can know exactly how the rating is created. Additionally, users can voice their praises and dissatisfactions on our comment section and social media to help me further improve the metric.
