Why Has Quantity Become More Important Than Quality?

Looking at these past runway shows, I couldn't help but notice the amount of texture being use. Furs, leathers, even some pony skin were presented but how will this translate in retailers?
The fast fashion retailers will no doubt take them and translate or go so far as to copy these designs to fit into a price point. And we as consumers will no doubt buy it.
Why is it that we are choosing quantity over quality?
Is it "keeping up with the Jones" where we need to wear a different outfit every day and every time we go out just to compete with ourselves? 
We should be looking at the longevity of items, not asking ourselves how many washes do you think we can get out of this $10 top. 
In a world filled with things so fast paced that you are already behind while reading this post, quality has taken a back seat.
