I love primark, it is my primary clothes shop. However it is disposable fashion.
I discovered primark all due to black vests. Sometimes staple clothes can be extremely hard to locate in popular shops and I remember going into many shops and not being able to locate them. This was all a few years ago before primark really became very popular. I went in there not quite knowing what to expect and it was chaos. However when I looked at the prices i was shocked, everything was bargain prices!
Luckily for me primark moved from its dingy shop where the ladies changing rooms seemed to be more of a communal changing room and a couple of discarded curtains to a recently outfitted shop.
I pop into primark quite regularly. The clothes are not made to last and easily wear. Wool bobbles, buttons fall off, zips catch and deform. However what you pay for, is what you get.
You can't go in there and expect to pay ten pounds for a dress and for it to last years to come.
Primark shops are also not ethical. They are made is sweatshops which I know is wrong and I know I can't really justify it ethically apart from it is cheaper for me and saves me money but everyone needs to make their own choices.
Summary: My primary shop for clothes
