Fast fashion, or clothing made in large quantities at low cost, has been criticized for its effect on the environment.

Observers also expressed concerns about the excessive use of water, the use of plastic microfibers and the excessive consumption of clothing.

The Shops at Willow Bend was recently purchased by Dallas-based Centennial real estate investment firm, with Dallas-based investors Cawley Partners and New York-based Waterfall Asset Management.
