Fast Fashion is a thing of the Past: Choose Quality Over Quantity


The average consumer wastes more money on cheap clothing to be “on trend” than consciously investing in a piece that they will never have to replace.


We tend to forget that the luxurious products we ignore because of their price tag are worth the spending. Would you rather spend $500 on 8 pieces of clothing that will be thrown out a year later or $500 on one good versatile piece that you can wear for years? The big picture matters.

 

DAMAGING OUR EARTH

“Buying clothing, and treating it as if it is disposable, is putting a huge added weight on the environment and is simply unsustainable,” says Elizabeth L. Cline, author of Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion.

Not only is fast fashion draining our wallets, it is draining our earth’s beauty and resources. Each year over 80 billion pieces of clothing are produced worldwide, and after its short lifespan, three out of four will end up in landfills or be incinerated. Only a quarter will be recycled.

 

STYLE THAT LASTS

VERA DE NERO’s mission statement has been strong and persistent throughout time. From the beginning, we have recognized the damaging effects of producing and selling goods for a cheap price.

We have made it our mission to produce luxurious, environment-friendly goods that will allow the VERA DE NERO women to focus on building a bigger life while looking her best.

We produce products that you will be a staple item in your wardrobe for years to come, making you confident and environmentally conscious.

 

We have carefully designed this pieces with the VERA DE NERO women in mind. Although trends and styles come and go, we have created pieces that will be timeless, chic, and versatile for you.
