It's meant cotton prices have risen to their highest in 15  years, and that will soon be reflected on our high streets.

Retail analysts are predicting the hardest hit will be bargain chains , such as  Primark, New Look or Peacocks.That's because cotton accounts for a large slice of their overheads.

In fact, cotton prices are 50 percent higher than this time last year.  In a month, raw cotton has jumped from 10 cents a pound to 83 cents a  pound. The recent rise is mostly down to floods across Asia which have  wiped out at least 1/3 of cotton crops in Pakistan alone.

The headache will definitely be bigger for the lower price pointed  source on the high street without doubt, because they are the ones that  see mass of, you know, a massive product going out of their doors  everyday where someone like Burberry or other designed brands. It's kind  of the individual piece, or bags or perfumes or accessories.

There are some who feel that's a good thing. Ethical fashion designer Ashelo Decastro thinks the era of disposable fashion is near its end.

Inevitably, this bubble was going to have to bust.  So the feeling is that once the consumer becomes aware of the fact that  it actually has been unrealistic for quite a long time, we will be  embracing a new culture, a new way of emotionally engaging with our  clothing.

After ten years of sharp deflation in clothing prices, this spike maybe just a brief interruption.

Retailers do all they can to avoid putting up prices to customers, but  of course UK retail is certainly not powerful enough to dictate the  world price of cotton, and if those raw material costs going up then,  this gonna produce an upward pressure on the short price of clothing  here.

Overall, this is a bad time for retailers. Higher freight costs, wage  inflation in China and this cotton crisis have added up to a prediction  of clothing inflation, hitting its highest level in the UK for 24 years.
