Abstract

The women’s fashion industry is one of the most profitable and prevalent industries in the world, dominating the media and grossing tens of billions of dollars in the United States alone. From a less numerical perspective, it serves as the basis for much of pop culture (e.g. Victoria’s Secret fashion shows, “brand culture”, fit-inspo pages), and it’s one of the few markets that is unceasingly evolving with new trends popping up daily. However, its negative impacts, particularly on impressionable young girls, are equally substantial and widespread. In this project, we will use data analysis and visualization to examine the effects of the women’s fashion industry from several perspectives, including mental health, economic pursuits, and gender equality. Additionally, we hope to bring attention to these issues so that women’s fashion can change in the future to become less detrimental to its very target audience. It may also be beneficial to bring awareness of its negative implications to the general public, so we can protect women and regain control of the situation.
