Slow Fashion Manifesto
Updated: Nov 6, 2020
In early 2020, I was a collaborator at Kind Clothing, a gathering place of slow fashion. This is what I wrote to describe my place there:
Slow fashion is what happens when we go beyond the metrics of consumption and capital, and truly engage with how our actions impact the global environment and society. We slow down as pivotal processes, once neglected, regain importance.
The pursuit of a craft is a similar journey, rich in processes and interactions. The consequences of design and method are maximised rather than off-sourced. This practice is an excellent basis for slow processes, and perhaps this is why many artisans I know intentionally think about, and find ways to approach, sustainability and well-being.
