-Department stores then began designing for themselves, bringing clothes to market much faster
-Zara designs and markets fashion in a month

Tootsie Roll predicts that Fast Fashion will quickly "fall apart at the seams"! At TootsUncommon we pride ourselves on using good fabrics so that our clients get a quality product that their dog can wear for the long haul. We look for creative ways to reuse fabrics and gently worn clothing items. We keep our inventory low so that it does not "go out of style" or become wasted! And yes, we are still going to follow the old-fashioned seasonal styles - good things never die!
