Rows of shoes at H&M. Author Dana Thomas says mass produced clothing like this is an environmental disaster.

It’s easier than ever to buy cheap clothes that are stylish — even designer knock offs. In fact, that’s how many of us shop these days, filling up our closets with the latest looks from places like Zara and H&M. It’s fun, affordable and good business for the brands.

Dana Thomas’ new book is “Fashionopolis: The Price of Fashion and the Future of Clothes.”
