Abstract
The main objective of this dissertation is to explore the possible relationship between fast fashion and human rights. To do this, the dissertation has been articulated in three main chapters. In particular, the first chapter analyses what is fast fashion, its main characteristics and mechanisms, as well as the policies that are behind the main fast fashion brands. The second chapter explores the main legislation and legal frameworks regulating the relationship between fast fashion and human rights, starting from UNGPs and due diligence processes in the garment sector. The third and final chapter takes into consideration some examples of fast fashion brands, focusing on the main problems and innovations that these brands have implemented to improve the relation with human rights. To conclude, the dissertation formulates some considerations about how possible alternatives to fast fashion could be implemented by looking at the future: is an alternative to fast fashion possible? Who should oversee the pursuit of such an alternative? The argument is very wide and subject to continuous research.
