Slow Fashion ft. SUMMERBARN
Hope you all are doing great.
I was trying to post this blog between 23rd -29th of April as it was Fashion Revolution Week. But failed to do so, as I got caught up with my exams. Sorry for that.
I know I’m super late but I would love to share my views with you guys.
So, let me give you a brief about what Fashion revolution week is!
Fashion Revolution Week is a #whomademyclothes campaign in April, which falls on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1138 people and injured many more on 24th April 2013. That is the day Fashion Revolution was born. During this week, brands and producers are encouraged to respond with the hashtag #imadeyourclothes and to demonstrate transparency in their supply chain.
I wanted to post this blog between this week because I was going to share story of one of my favorite sustainable brand “Summer Barn“.
Summer Barn celebrates femininity with fabrics traditional to our country.
I had a talk with them and they stated that ” They don’t use chemicals and the workers get more than their fair wages.
Also they use the best quality of cotton and even mul mul lining for outfits to make the outfits more comfortable. They respect their workers. ”
They offer minimalistic yet classic styles with a contemporary verve.
Often, handloom fabrics are approached with lack of enthusiasm but their collection is all about having fun with handlooms keeping affordability in mind.
Their styles are simple yet versatile.
This Gingham Checks Dress is so comfortable and soft. Wear it for a casual afternoon lunch or for a beach vacation ( lemme know if you want some beachy pictures. :- p)
Talking about the fabric it is fully lined knee length cotton weave and cotton mesh dress. Which is perfect for summer.
For styling I’ve added statement belt and a sling bag which looks so perfect with this dress.
I love their modern take on handcrafted fabrics.
Do check their site for more options! –> https://summerbarn.in/
Also I just can’t wait for their new launch of bags and cases collection.
Fashion has power, the power to change lives. The lives of farmers, spinners, weavers, printers, tailors, designers and many more who have invisibly woven their souls into what we wear.
Sustainable fashion has the power to touch the soul instead of just the body.
Synthetic fabrics like polyester, spandex , nylon etc are non biodegradable it takes years for them to decompose, so make the right choices. Choosing more organic options like cotton, mul, khadi, ikat, linens etc can be a better option concerning the planet. Now it is upto you that you want to harm your planet or wanna treat it well.
Do Recycle & Reinvent.
FIND MEANING IN WHAT YOU WEAR . KNOW YOUR CLOTHES.
SIMPLICITY IS THE ULTIMATE SOPHISTICATION. LET IT SUSTAIN.
BUY LESS. CHOOSE WELL. SLOW FASHION.
And please think about farmers, spinners, weavers, printers, tailors, designers, etc. And ask yourself “Who made my clothes?”
That’s all I wanted to share.
