Winter clothing is out of fashion.

The heavy winter coat is not only out …. it may be a thing of the past.

Australian Fashion Week, which kicked off Tuesday in Sydney, has ditched the traditional autumn/winter tag in favour of “trans-seasonal” runway shows full of clothes that can be worn year-round.

“Clothes just sit there, no one is buying them,” said Fashion Week founder Simon Lock. “These are things that dramatically affect business.”

He said the issue has become such an industry-wide headache that some brands have hired climate experts to advise on which fabrics to use and on delivery schedules to get their clothing into stores at the right time.

“There’s a lot of cities where climate change has an impact on what’s now currently available in the stores,” he said.

    How very sensible.

    GAP doesn’t seem to think so. I visited one of their stores yesterday and found no barrels on display. 😦

    My dear, Gap is so last century. For that genuine sweatshop feel, go to Primark. But no barrels there either, sadly.

    I’ve just spilled out of Topman a very happy boy. Managed to find a few items I like for a change. No sweat (hopefully).
