The following video is part of our "Talking Stocks" series, in which Motley Fool analysts Catherine Baab-Muguira and Lyons George discuss trends across the investing universe.

It's called "fast fashion," and a few key retailers are getting in on this lucrative game. Markedly different from more traditional retailers such as Abercrombie & Fitch, Gap, or even Target, this new breed of retailer enjoys an extremely low-cost business model and is seeing incredible growth.

Two of the most exciting "fast fashion" retailers are Rue21 and Body Central. Should you add these retailers to your Watchlist?
