I’m trying slowing down and taking the time the appreciate the small things. I believe that by living a little slower we can find contentment in our lives and lower our impact on the world around us.
A little about me and why I’m on this journey…
Growing up I always wanted to design and make clothes. I studied fashion design at LJMU and it was during this time that I started to beome more aware of the fast fashion industry and the impact is has on the environment and supply chain workers. The more I learned about fast fashion the less I wanted to work in the industry. The idea of repeatedly buying cheap clothing, just to wear items handful of times before disposing of them, became something I couldnt enjoy any more. The bubble burst for me.
Instead, I want to be a part of a fashion industry which values the craft of garment production, appreciates clothes which have been made to last, and made with a considered approach to supply chain workers and to environmental impacts. It didn’t take long for me to start looking at all aspects of my life in this way. I couldn’t shift the idea that every part of my life, every action I take, every product I consume, has an impact on the world around me. Every time we buy somthing we are casting a vote for the kind of world we want to live in.
I went back to university to study an MA in Fashion Innovation where I focused on sustainable fashion practise. I spent two years researching into the impact of the fast fashion industry and campaigning for slow fashion.
