Slow Fashion 101
What is Slow Fashion? It is many things and can be interpreted and practiced in many ways. Based on the principles of the Slow Food Movement it is similarly an alternative to the fast, mass-produced, consumed and disposed. We see it as the sustainable future of the fashion industry.
Whilst the industry and us as consumers have limited “slow” choices, there are many options and opportunities emerging. In this space we will be discovering what is already out there in terms of producers and designers. As consumers we should aspire to be as informed as possible, think about a purchase, and consider it’s life span.
Here are just a few examples of slow fashion – which you might already be engaging in without knowing! –
We look forward to hear about your Slow Fashion adventures, discoveries and suggestions.
Warm (slow) Regards,
