I believe that fast fashion and materialistic objects are displacing the important values when it comes to "stuff", the focus is now being set on impressing others and showing a sense of status/wealth without taking into account the negative effects produced by the companies that are selling these products. I think that the focus should be set on buying products that are built to last and are more ethical in order to reduce some of the negative effects of fast fashion. In the future, a perfect world would be one that has moved away from the fast fashion trend and where consumers value usability and sustainability over status. I want to take a step toward this ideal world by buying products that are long-lasting and by supporting companies that emphasize more sustainable/ethical methods of production.
