What is Slow Fashion?

by Jennifer Harris |

Slow fashion is the art of thoughtfully creating, consuming, and appreciating clothing.

WHAT SLOW FASHION IS:

  • Made from sustainable raw materials
  • Locally sourced, produced or sold in smaller stores rather than mass chain stores
  • Offer fewer, more specific styles per collection
  • Considers ethical working conditions
  • Opts for sustainable materials with low-impact options

Slow fashion encourages us to consciously purchase garments at a higher quality and to take better care of them. As a slow fashion designer, Jennifer Harris at Juniper Sparrow sources natural materials to build her versatile, elevated casual designs. Each garment is hand-crafted recognizing that it may be a timeless (and often season-free) item of a curated wardrobe.

WHAT SLOW FASHION IS NOT:

Slow fashion is the opposite of fast fashion. Fast fashion is inexpensively mass producing garments for chain retailers.

  • Cheap or abusive labor practices
  • Garments duplicated from runway shows, trend, or other designers
  • Made from unsustainable, high-impact raw materials
  • Wear out quickly encouraging faster consuming and a need for more clothes
