Slow Down into Slow Fashion

It is a better time than ever to challenge the norms! Our fast domineering EcOnmY is over ruling our souls into consumerism. Everyday is a challenge. The convenience and structures that we have in place do not support a sustainable future.

Since October 2019, I have been dealing with debilitating back and neck problems. I have had no choice but to slow down. Burdened by my body, I had to adjust to a new way of life. A life that was filled with more self care, rest, yoga, meditation, singing, and art! I need to heal. What better way to heal the body, than to heal the soul. As a fashion student and disabled veteran, I need to find an industry to where I can fit in.

The Slow Fashion Movement started in 2007, by Kate Fletcher. It focuses on sustainability and remodeling business structures, to a more forward approach. This approach is a strive for long lasting quality garments, fair labor/ethical practices, and ecologically conscious textiles/waste during the whole production chain.

We have a demand for change.

Fuck the systems in Place! We can make New Ones!

Never be afraid to start over.

My approach to fashion design is up-cycling and circulatory textile methods. During my last year in school, I want to challenge myself to use all that I have. Stop buying new fabrics, unless properly sourced. Take from already made garments. Properly recycle scraps, and plan quality designs.

Blur the Lines.

Invent Something New!
