“I try to approach what I do in fashion in a sustainable and a responsible way, so not only in the materials that I use, but the way that I source and manufacture my product,” she said of a range priced between $35 and $150 and made from fabrics including cotton, viscose, lame and lace. Working on collaborations such as her current one with the C&A chain meant “pausing fast-fashion, just slowing it down for a moment, so that the consumer who maybe can’t afford our clothes can come and have a different experience with C&A.” McCartney said she saw her range as “quite timeless, so it’s fast-fashion — but it’s meeting luxury in a way that you will have these garments, I hope, in the way they’re designed, in the way which we’ve sourced the highest (quality) materials we could with C&A. “I think what we have done here is a good example of what we can do with fast fashion. I think they will last you longer than normal fast-fashion,” said McCartney, adding she was “emotionally attached to everything I create.” She told reporters fashion was “not just about luxury,” hence her collaboration with a high street store. “I also worked with a lot of sustainable and environmentally friendly fabrics in this collaboration, so for me, it’s about doing fast-fashion in a way that just slows it down a little bit,” McCartney explained.

Converging views. Establishment Republicans such as McConnell and tea party Republicans such as Cruz agree more than they differ. That means there can be ways for McConnell to align with Cruz on issues, and even on some tactics. Attempting to repeal Obamacare, in whole or in part, moving to roll back regulations through budgetary maneuvers, pushing forward on the Keystone XL pipeline these are all areas of commonality with Cruz.
