What Is Slow Fashion?
Countless terms in the sustainable fashion sphere, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed—especially when some of them seem to blur together! So what is ‘slow fashion’ exactly, and how is it different from sustainable fashion? We’re here to tackle the term for you and explain why slowing fashion down is crucial for a fashion industry that leaves a lighter footprint for generations to come.
What is slow fashion?
Put simply, slow fashion is the opposite of fast fashion. It encompasses an awareness and approach to fashion that considers the processes and resources required to make clothing. It advocates for buying better-quality garments that will last longer, and values fair treatment of people, animals, and the planet along the way.
Realistically, slow fashion and sustainable or ethical fashion have a lot of similarities. They are sister movements and follow the same general guidelines. The main difference with slow fashion is that it hones in on reducing consumption and production more specifically.
The beginnings of slow fashion
The past decade or so has seen a wave of change sweep through the fashion industry. An increasing number of brands are rejecting the principles of fast fashion and opting for a more sustainable approach to making clothes.
The term ‘slow fashion’ came about quite organically. It was coined by Kate Fletcher of the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, following the phenomena of the slow food movement. As with the slow food movement, Fletcher saw a need for a slower pace in the fashion industry.
Slow fashion opposes the fast fashion model that emerged around 20 years ago, in which clothes became cheaper, and trend cycles sped up. With brands like H&M burning many tonnes of unsold garments per year despite ongoing sustainability efforts to close the loop in fashion, it’s clear that this philosophy is a necessary part of the movement as a whole.
We understand slow fashion is a process so we understand is not easy to wait 4 -6 weeks for item that could be delivered within days by a fast fashion company, but when we visually the overall impact our purchase have, we determined that slow fashion was the way to go for us.
“With slower production schedules, small-batch collections, and zero-waste designs, slow fashion brands aim to reduce the textile waste clogging our landfills.”
TGC Fashion is made to last.
Fast fashion corporations spit new collections onto sales floors almost every week, and less than one percent of all clothing materials are recycled into new garments. Slow fashion flips this model on its head. With slower production schedules, small-batch collections, and zero waste designs, slow fashion brands aim to reduce the textile waste clogging our landfills. Instead of chasing trends, these brands utilize enduring styles with layering options and create classic and versatile pieces. This encourages customers to build minimalist wardrobes and invest in garments that they keep for a lifetime.
