SHEIN is a fashion retailer that has become popular over the past years. The reason behind its popularity is its unbeatable prices. This company, which originally started as a women's fashion company, has expanded to other areas, such as home decor, men's and kid's fashion, tech accessories, and beauty products. The slogan behind SHEIN is that they “make the beauty of fashion accessible to all”. Despite selling products at very affordable prices, the company has faced some controversial claims from activists questioning the ethics behind their practices.

How does SHEIN operate?

SHEIN's headquarters are located in Singapore and it has centers of operation all over the world, like in the US, Brazil, Ireland, and Southern China. It also has offices in Los Angeles, São Paulo, Dublin, Guangzhou, Paris, Washington D.C., London, and Singapore.

According to their website, SHEIN operates based on an on-demand model. This means that they launch their products in small batches and increase production based on the public's response. This model is supposed to minimize overproduction, which results in less waste and better prices. With this philosophy, SHEIN avoids over-purchasing raw materials and the over-production of items.

Moreover, SHEIN claims to empower merchants and brands by providing them with a platform that allows them to reach a global audience. Third-party merchants also have access to their product performance and market intelligence dashboards, which allow them to read market trends and customer demands. In addition, the SHEIN team claims to localize their supply chains, which creates job opportunities in the communities where they operate.

Fast fashion and ethical concerns

Despite SHEIN's efforts to give the impression of being a sustainable business model, there have been many concerns about the ethics behind their practices. The fast-fashion industry is one of the most damaging to the environment since it promotes cheap, trendy, and mass-produced clothes, which results in huge amounts of waste and carbon emissions.

The SHEIN team has been working on changing this image of the brand by creating a resale platform, committing to decarbonizing their supply chain, sourcing responsible products and materials, and protecting biodiversity and animal welfare. They also claim to conduct wage audits to ensure fair wages are paid to their suppliers' employees in China. These efforts, however, have not eradicated the concerns and facts behind the fast-fashion industry.

Pros:

  • Products at affordable prices.
  • Worldwide shipping.
  • Distribution centers in many countries.

Cons:

  • Not the best quality materials.
  • Fast-fashion industry.
  • Most products are of synthetic materials.
