Many people see designer clothes as not being worth it. Though in my personal opinion I think they are worth it if you can afford it. My father owned a few designer pieces, and due to them being taken care of, they have lasted over 20 years and are almost brand new. Statement pieces that are unique can be hard to come by, though designer clothes will tend to be on the side of being fresh and creative. As well as being unique so they are harder to replicate to be sold into the mainstream fast fashion industry.

Seeing the creativity and the amount of time that goes into crafting some garments (which may also be tailored to a person’s body measurements and personalised with little details), it is understandable why items of clothing have lasted so long and why they are expensive. Whilst buying cheap is better short term, clothes don’t last very long anymore, and can easily break such as ripping.

Through having clothes that can last, it can be better for the planet as they are less likely to be thrown away and pollute the environment. Whereas fast fashion clothes are consistently being thrown away due to imperfections and just breaking within the first week of an individual having and wearing the item. So, in my opinion, if you can afford it and love designer statement pieces, I think they are definitely worth it!
