The fashion industry is one of the most interesting, most followed, most loved and most creative industries, but unfortunately according to the UN Conference on trade and development (UNCTAD) it is also the second most polluting industry in the world.
The fashion industry impacts on several areas of which the main ones are:
Climate – Environment – People – Waste.
The fashion industry is going at too fast and unsustainable a pace for our planet now and we all have a duty to be part of the change!
The world is changing and we have to change too, small daily changes that mean the world.
Being part of the change does not have to entail a loss of style but rather discovering a new, more personal style, a new form of fashion expression, finding one’s own creativity and not continuing to follow the trends that fast fashion is constantly changing!
We used to have four seasons and now?
Now fast fashion brands are releasing collections at an unsustainable rate and I don’t mean (ONLY) for the planet but I also mean for people.
Now stop following the constant trends, find out what you really like, what makes you happy to wear and what makes you feel comfortable.
Want to find your own style but follow a slower fashion?
Do you want to stop buying fast fashion but are afraid that sustainable fashion is too expensive?
Think sustainable fashion doesn’t make you fashionable?
You don’t know how to use what you already have?
Don’t be afraid of change!
This can be your challenge and I will accompany you in this process.
