Tried to create a photo story “ME TIME” .
Where I’m spending some quality time by reading one of my favourite book, close to the nature, wore most comfortable dress. Roaming around the beautiful garden with greenery around me.
I felt so good creating this photo series . Everything around me was so beautiful. The weather was also nice & all my favourite things like flowers, birds & my novel.
When we are close to the nature we feel so comfortable & refreshing that it soothes our soul. Similarly sustainable fashion has the power to touch the soul instead of just the body.
You guys know how I am trying to include some subtle sustainable clothes to my wardrobe.
I cannot end my love affair with fast fashion but slowly and steadily I can include slow fashion in my wardrobe.
From past 1 year I’m buying less clothes & repeating them. There is no harm in repeating clothes. Do it just like you repeat your own mistakes!
Also I’m creating new looks mixing different outfits together.
So, here are some tips how we can gradually move towards slow fashion & not ditch fast fashion.
1. Less is more
Suppose your wardrobe is full of purchases which you don’t wear. Instead of expanding into more closet space. You can reduce it’s size by gifting, swapping or donating items which you don’t use to make space for something new.
2. Choose quality not quantity
Low quality items are designed to be dumped after 2-3 months. So, if we invest in quality clothes they will not ditch us after 2-3 months. We can use them over years.
3. Buy organic & natural
Synthetic fabrics are made from petrochemicals & have a significant environment impact. Organic fabrics reduce these impacts. That means less pollution.
4. Buy Handmade
Buying handmade allows creative individuals to sell their hard work, get exposure, value their skills of knitting, weaving, sewing etc.
5. Reduce, Reuse & Recycle
The fashion industry is the largest polluters in the world second only to the oil industry. If we choose sustainable fashion we can make small difference for future.
