Did Fast Fashion Ruin Charlotte Russe?

On Monday, Feb. 4th, Charlotte Russe announced that they have filed for bankruptcy and are looking to close about 94 different stores out of their 500+ locations.

Originating in 1975 this affordable private fashion retailer is focused on creating everyday womenswear, such as clothing, footwear, and accessories.

According to a court filing on Monday, Charlotte Russe explained that their sales have been plummeting due to their inability to keep up with the constant turn-over in trending fashion and clothing, aka Fast Fashion.

Fast Fashion pressures stores and brands to flip the clothing and garments in their store just as quickly and seamlessly as trends change in order to keep up with the constantly evolving fashion market. Charlotte Russe claims that due to this constant turn over, the business began to suffer debt and “kept missing their mark” which ultimately lead them to go bankrupt.

Charlotte Russe was once in the runnings to become a billion-dollar company according to CNN BUSINESS. With its gradual decline in store traffic, and inability to respond to the latest fashion trend, Charlotte Russe will temporarily downsize its footprint to regain strength to come back stronger.

Charlotte Russe Bankrupt

[ IDK about you all but I caught one of my locations on the list and that makes me kind of sad and guilty in terms of fast fashion. I, for one, always have good luck spotting a gem in Charlotte Russe. If you look really well, there are definitely quality pieces in that store - of course, it may cost a tad more or not be on sale- but that’s what sustainable fashion is about, right? You buy what you love, and what you know you’ll use up; I’m STILL using up all my Charlotte Russe heels and outfits! Go me! #sustainability ]
