While many high street stores seem to focus more of ‘fast fashion’ (or ‘throw away fashion’ as it is sometimes called) there is a new movement slowly taking ground here in the UK.
Known as ‘Slow Fashion’ the people behind it are dedicated to quality over quantity. Carin Mansfield, a designer from London uses old-fashioned work wear as the inspiration for her garments. She creates each piece with attention to detail, believing that if the person who buys it cares for the garment correctly it will last a life time. The idea behind ‘slow fashion’ is to educate the prospective buyers, and the public at large, about the time and energy that goes into making every single piece of clothing we own. Something that is often overlooked when buying an intricately sewn top for the price of a coffee. You can learn more about the Slow Fashion movement by watching this BBC investigation.
