The antidote to fast fashion
Slow clothing is following the lead of slow food as a way of responding to waste, pollution, and exploitation issues in the way we dress. Australian social entrepreneur Jane Milburn, founder of Textile Beat, has spent five years studying the need to transform a culture of excess to a more thoughtful and engaged approach. She believes slow clothing is the antidote to fast fashion.
In her new book, Slow Clothing: finding meaning in what we wear, Jane presents a compelling case for people to change the way we dress so that we can live lightly on Earth.
