Slow fashion offers an alternative with mindful manufacturing, fair labor rights, natural materials, and lasting garments. It advocates for manufacturing in respect to people, environment and animals.
Reason 1: HIGH QUALITY PIECES
When the consumer buys high quality pieces they are buying clothing that can be cherished for years to come. This promotes more wear and less waste. High quality clothing is made up of natural fibers and is a sustainable option.
Reason 2: TEACHES YOU TO SPEND RESPONSIBLY
When buying slow fashion the consumer is supporting mindful manufacturing, fair labor rights, and lasting garments made form natural materials. Unlike slow fashion, fast fashion encourages the consumer to spend more by keeping up with trends and always having to replace low quality items. When the consumer buys slow fashion it teaches them to value their clothes and the money that is being spent.
Reason 3: SUPPORTS FAIR WAGES & SAFE WORKING CONDITIONS
By buying slow fashion instead of fast fashion the consumer is supporting fair wages & safe working conditions. Reminder: The consumer has the power to create change by where they spend their money. If you like to know more on this topic research Rana plaza and/or watch the movie "True Cost"
Reason 4: BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT Slow fashion focuses on quality and longevity with natural materials and reduced consumption.
Reason 5: PERSONAL STYLE OVER TRENDS
Slow fashion focuses on timelessness over trends. Focusing on personal style will reduce consumption. The consumer will always have classic pieces that can work with any garment. Keeping up with trends can be stressful and distracts the consumer from their creativity and authenticity.
