Believe it or not, we still feel the effects of the Great Recession of 2007-09, when millions lost their jobs. With so many consumers cutting back on spending, all True Fashionista retailers felt the pain.

You may recall how, In November 2008, Saks rocked the fashion industry when it slashed prices by 70 percent to clear out inventory. Competing major retailers quickly followed suit, sinking their profit margins. Store buyers became more conservative, stocking less inventory and focusing on items that had performed well in the past.

Fast fashion happened in response, quickly becoming the norm for millennials looking to dress professionally on a budget. Once things leveled out and they realized that designer quality lasts longer, haute couture experienced a reemergence.


Luxury goods still reigned among the wealthy during the Recession. Items with noticeable logos experienced resistance as shoppers began looking for lower-priced, lesser-known designers. There were rumors of happenings similar to that of the French brand Hermès, maker of the coveted Birkin bag, who was letting self-conscious customers carry their purchases out in demure brown shopping bags rather than their much more noticeable bright orange ones.
