Fashion images that saturate our news feeds help the industry bring in a whopping £26 billion to our economy. On average we each spend £640 on clothes per year and collectively throw out almost 350,000 tonnes of textiles. One third of this has barely been worn! This is men and women alike with men only wearing 13% of the clothing in their wardrobes.
