The 2019 global wellness trends

The wellness clothing is hitting the fashion industry and experts believe that through what we wear, the health and wellness envelope can be pushed even further.

The common factor between wellness and fashion is the leading trend of the newly released 2019 Global Wellness Trends Report.

This report states the deliberations between 650 wellness experts from 50 nations at the Global Wellness Summit last year held in Cesena, Italy. They debated the future of wellness, eventually narrowing it down to eight trends that would lead in disrupting the industry.

In this report they discuss clothes that are made up of kelp , and people are capturing it and turning it into a yarn to create new fabric.

Speaking to Phemelo on the Weekend Breakfast, Jackie said there are new ways of creating fabric and not using synthetic fabric which is made up of fiber.

From the sustainability side, it is good for us to re-use our clothes, and it is also good for us to look after our clothes for them not to look like trash. Big retailers need to be more responsible when they are producing their clothes to try and reduce the impact its cause on the environment.
