INSIGHT FASHION

This film dives deep into thrift culture. The purpose is to familiarize people with thrifting. I want to understand why people thrift and how thrifting benefits them. In addition, I am curious to know their opinions on commercialising thrifting and how capitalism and inflation have affected them.

Currently, the nature and culture of thrifting are growing and being recognized more by society. Big businesses or people with a large sum of income see this as an opportunity to profit off thrift items. They stock thrift items in bulk, leaving fewer items for people who do not have the privilege of purchasing from retail stores. They resell these items at a high price to people who are scared of the environment of thrifting or have no idea where to purchase thrift clothes.

This film engages with graffiti artist Solid Roc to find out more about the world of graffiti.
