Day 3: Prairie Underground + Slow Fashion
Another day, the same dress. It's honestly been just fine the last three days of wearing it. The fit and feel of the linen dress is easy and comfortable to wear (tonight, I'll be hand washing it and hang drying it).
The company who designed and manufactured the dress, Prairie Underground, has one of the best ethos of a clothing manufacture that I've personally come across (read about that in the link below).
Yesterday we briefly introduced fast fashion, today, let's define slow fashion.
Slow Fashion is the movement of designing, creating, and buying garments for quality and longevity. Slow fashion encourages slower production schedules, fair wages, lower carbon footprints, and (ideally) zero waste.
We've lost ownership of our belongings. We've lost value in the materials we use and bring into our lives. If we had more ownership of our materials we would certainly take better care of them, repair them, mend them, and hold them with us until they can't be used anymore.
