Hey loves, slow release fashion isn’t something I thought about before last week. But as times and the planet’s condition worsen its something we should all be thinking about. As someone who influences people to shop, and as someone who shops a lot, I think it’s the perfect time for us to have this conversation.
Back when the fashion industry was just getting into her groove and the internet and fashion bloggers did not exist, fashion houses released new collections by seasonal basis. This lead to better fabric, craftsmanship, quality, and consuming less materials. Fast fashion has an allure and I’ve been there. The constant need to be in the latest “Trends” is like an addiction fueled by social media, bloggers and many fast fashion outlets. Opting for brands that release more “Slow Fashion” is something I’m more conscious about now. My style over the past couple of years has done many twists, in what I wear and how I see clothes.
We can all admit to falling into traps set for us by retailers. My last trip to GoodWill was just two days ago. I sat in my room thinking this can’t go on, I can’t keep just buying things for the sake of having “new stuff.” When I go through my closet now I want pieces that don’t just say; I’m buying this because it will look good on Instagram, but something that I see myself wearing more than once. It’s just too trendy.

Try to narrow down what your style is, and trust me it’s ok if you aren’t there yet. But I wouldn’t be me, if I didn’t make this blog post to try and educate you guys. You can look up more on the damages that Fast Fashion is doing to the Planet, it sits beside the damage being done by plastic. Mass production, over building, and over breeding of animals. Fattening them up on hormones so billionaires can sell us more Dollar Menu burgers. Make small changes that will help the world, one person can accomplish a lot in this movement. I am cutting back completely on plastic bags I take from the grocery store, and I try my hardest to avoid taking a straw, bring my own reusable cup and now I have decided no more plastic water bottles.
Im not perfect and neither are you but together we can start making little changes that will have big impacts. How are you going to change the world, comment below:
