    Fast fashion brands have never been more popular, pumping out tens of thousands of new designs every week at rock-bottom prices, with countless social media influencers showing off their 'hauls' on Instagram and TikTok. But how are these clothes made so quickly, and at such a low cost to us as consumers? Is it all a result of slave labour and terrible environmental practices, or are they some benefits of fast fashion? The Quicky speaks to two fashion experts to find out exactly what counts as 'fast fashion', why it's so hard for us to give up, whether it is the only option for diverse body types, and if there is a reasonably priced alternative. If you want to know more about sustainable and humane textile manufacturing overseas, the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh works towards a safe and healthy garment and textile industry in Bangladesh.

    After weeks of campaigning, the voting is over, but as the winners prepare to take up their new roles in Parliament, perhaps you're thinking we should spare a thought for the losers... and what actually happens to them anyway? The Quicky speaks to three experts in Australian politics to find out what it means to lose an election (and your job), whether you're the Prime Minister of Australia, party leader,  a backbencher, or a bureaucrat who was never known to the public anyway.
