What is the Slow Fashion Movement?

As a reaction to Fast Fashion, the Slow Fashion Movement has developed.

Fast Fashion centers on designers copying styles seen on catwalks and having them made ready to sell in retail stores cheaply in a very quick time.

This has resulted in poorly made clothes, millions of which are dumped in landfill each year adversely affecting the environment.

What Are Some of the Characteristics of the Slow Fashion Movement?

If you want to join the Slow Fashion Movement it is very simple.

Shopping online at stores like FashMates is a great start. Many of our clothes are preloved and near-new. They are simply being resold by women who don’t want to add to the over pollution the fast fashion movement has caused.

Recycling and Appreciating Clothes Takes On a New Meaning

Other things you could do include buying vintage clothes, redesigning old clothes, shopping from smaller producers, making clothes and accessories at home and buying garments that last longer.

The idea of slow fashion ensures that the clothes manufactured are better quality and will last longer.

As well, creating fashion with a cultural and emotional connection is also important to the slow fashion movement because if a customer feels emotionally or culturally connected to an article of clothing they are less likely to throw it away.

Slow fashion is a revolt or action against the fast fashion movement, and for good reason.

Our planet can’t sustain the overproduction of clothes for any length of time.

Join us and do your bit by reselling your unwanted fashion clothes and accessories.
