What is Slow Fashion?
What Is Slow Fashion?
Slow fashion refers to the exact opposite of fast fashion, and it is considered a movement that wants to stop the terrible environmental, economic, social, and moral outcomes of fast fashion.
Slow fashion wants to achieve sustainability in the fashion industry, which is the second-largest polluter in the world just after the oil industry with environmental damage that is increasing as the industry grows.
The slow fashion movement wants clothes made from biodegradable materials, made with non-polluting production methods, and hiring people with a decent wage, without exploiting the workers from 3rd world countries (The end goal is not to refuse those people the job, but to pay them decently).
Is Slow Fashion More Expensive?
Slow fashion involves producing clothes with non-polluting processes and ethical work, which is naturally more expensive as the costs fast fashion outsources to the environment and 3rd world countries are eliminated by slow fashion.
For now, slow fashion still remains a little more expensive directly on the customer, but the clothes slow fashion offers are more durable, are more personalizable, and, most importantly, ethical and sustainable.
As more people become aware of the dangers of fast fashion and decide to shop responsibly, slow fashion is going to become more profitable, which is going to make room for innovations and new inventions that will make this ecological alternative much cheaper.
