what is slow fashion?
A Sustainable Fashion Future
The term Slow Fashion came about quite organically.
It was coined by Kate Fletcher, professor of Sustainability, Design, and Fashion at the University of the Arts London’s Centre for Sustainable Fashion, following the phenomena of the slow food movement.
Inspired by the slow food movement, Fletcher observed a need to slow down the fashion industry as well.
Slow Fashion is a movement focused on improving sustainability by challenging social cultures surrounding the industry and encouraging both retailers and consumers to take a more ethical approach to fashion.
Slow Fashion is the alternative to fast fashion. It supports redesigning old clothes, shopping from smaller producers, buying better-quality garments, and also values fair treatment of people, animals and the planet.
With growing consumer awareness and demand for higher sustainability and ethical standards, slow fashion movement has seen increasing support over the last few years.
why slow fashion?
SLOW FASHION IS THE ONLY FASHION THAT MAKES SENSE
In a perfect world, fashion would just be slow fashion, but we’re not there yet.
The clothing and textile industry is estimated to produce around 1.7 billion tonnes of CO2 each year, contributing heavily towards global heating.
Excessive volumes of water are required to grow the necessary raw materials, and the use of pesticides and other toxic chemicals such as fabric dyes, are damaging soil, biodiversity, and the water sources for local communities.
Hopefully, an increasing number of brands are rejecting the principles of fast fashion, as a more sustainable approach to making clothes comes to the fore.
