Slow fashion is not just a seasonal trend, it is a movement that is gaining momentum and is here to stay.
Today, the fashion and textile industry relies on global mass production. Garments and products are quickly moved from design, construction, to the retail floor in only a few weeks. Big-box retailers rely on selling the latest fashion trends at low prices and consumers are easily swayed to purchase more than they need, i.e. overconsumption. The fashion and textile industry is the third most polluting industry in the world, and the second largest consumer of water. Creating textiles and manufacturing uses water, energy, and chemicals. Unfortunately, overconsumption and harmful production methods come with a hidden price tag. It is the environment that is paying.
