“Going, going, slow!” was a project undertaken in South Australia to demonstrate the juxtaposition observed from the quickening uptake of slow fashion this year.

Your love for fashion should be a no-brainer. Yes of course it plays a massive part in your personal identity down to a subconcious level, and feeling conflicted over getting something new after you’ve read this (or other similar articles calling out the problems of fast fashion) may become a common occurance. And if anyone can develop a one-size-fits-all solution to answer the questions highlighted above give me holla.

Even so, here are some suggestions to begin your slightly (if ever) englightened journey towards a more sustainable step in fashion: The creative classics (HomeJob the Label), the minimalist maximalist (Autark and Alix Yang Jewellery), and the freakishly flamboyant (Ana Terra, Fox in the Run Vintage and SWOP Exchange) – these geniuses have got you covered all across the spectrum of style and you can be assured everything was made with love.
