The mantra, for Spring 2012, at AP Shop.

CPW, or cost per wear, is so important in these "fast fashion" days... Quality, over mass production. A friend recently said, Why is it that a person will spend a fortune on a special occasion piece that will be worn once, and not invest in something that can be worn daily, and for years. As a teacher in the Fashion Studies department at Columbia College Chicago, I want this message to reach my students, and the new guard. Let's invest in quality, over quantity.
