Slow fashion - a term that "slowly" but surely begins to penetrate even into ordinary speech. Surely you have heard about this phenomenon, and if not, we will bring it a little closer to you now.
Slow X Fast fashion
Has it ever happened to you that you just went for a walk to the mall, got lost in the discount department of a popular fashion chain and saw a T-shirt for two dollars, which doesn't fit into your wardrobe at all, but you just can't leave it there for the money? And that's how you bought something you don't need. The T-shirt was cheap, but it is also quite likely to be of poor quality, it will soon cease to serve, fly into the basket and will be replaced by another top with a similar fate. In addition, you do not even know about this piece, who produced it and under what conditions, and what impact its production has on the environment. This short story, which we all know, describes how Fast fashion works.
Slow fashion, on the other hand, tries to fight this style of shopping. He doesn't want unnecessary, low-quality things to be bought unnecessarily, which don't even make you happy with the result. Proponents of slow fashion pay attention to the quality of products, select goods from local producers and are interested in who produced the goods and how. It is important that the product also has a better life - the substances from which it is made do not destroy the environment, it is sold at a fair price and it will keep you company for more than one season. If you have already served yours with you, thanks to its quality and honest workmanship, it can move to a new owner and continue to serve. It is a piece in the production of which everyone was honestly paid, their rights and the principles of good working conditions were not violated. And it also supports the local market.
So why is it better to buy a piece from a slow fashion brand?
When you buy goods that were made with a slow fashion approach, you can be sure that you will get a timeless fashion piece that will become your companion for a long time. You get quality or quantity, your closet won't crack in the seams, because of the clothes you only wear once or twice - we're not rich enough to buy cheap things. You buy the thing you really need and you really use. You will support local companies that strive for change and a fair approach, both to employees and to nature. Your wardrobe will be enriched with an original piece that someone just won't have. You will know where the goods come from and how they were made. And all this is worth it to you.
