I really believe in slow fashion. To that end, The Fashion Sloth is a blog dedicated to slow fashion and sustainable style. It is committed to: championing young emerging designers, supporting fashion committed to ethical & sustainable practices and celebrating the upcycling and recycling of garments wherever and whenever possible.
Fashion, in its current state, is essentially unsustainable. From the embryonic stages of a designer’s inspiration, to the creation and production of a piece all the way through to the consumer’s trip to the store and subsequent purchase, the fashion industry has a large impact on our world. Fashion is the most negatively repercussive of all the arts – both environmentally and socially it leaves the biggest mark. As an industry, fashion is phenomenally unsustainable and that which is unsustainable, by it’s very definition, cannot last. Slow fashion is a glimpse into the future of fashion: sustainable fashion created with awareness and responsibility, fashion that lasts.
I don’t update it as often as I should. Sorry.
