Jen Brownlie, the founder of The Sustainable Edit, started off as a 'regular' fashion blogger in 2014. But a year later her views on fashion changed. Fast was not the way to go for her anymore. And now she shares her experiences with slow fashion with all of you. Her blog focusses mostly on capsule wardrobes. The idea behind this is that you can still look your best with a small wardrobe. So less can be more!
"Embracing slow fashion and changing the way I shop has lifted a weight off my shoulders. Before I publicly ended my relationship with fast fashion I felt so much pressure to always have a new outfit and worried about what I was wearing. Now I'm taking the time to think through all my purchases and focusing on buying better quality. This means I always have something to wear and don't feel the pressure to buy something new for an event. Another plus is it's saving me money, yes the clothes are more expensive to purchase but I'm buying so much less in the long run." - Jen Brownlie (@sustainableedit)
To Dana fashion has a lot of meaning. Fashion, to her, is a way to express herself and to her fashion brings her joy. But mind you, fashion is not about just filling your closet with as many goodies as you can get. It is about taking a conscious approach to fashion. For amazing tips from an actual stylist on how to look amazing in vintage pieces, Closet Confessional is really worth visiting.
"Supporting slow fashion is about more than positively impacting the environment. It’s about making a choice to support the people behind the clothes, to choose quality over quantity, to choose longevity over trends. As a personal stylist, I regularly witness our society’s obsession with consumption and the constant need for more. This ultimately just leads to more waste. Rather than supporting this narrative and the pressure to keep up with the never ending and ever changing trends, I decided to slow down and change my habits. Slow fashion is about more than clothes. It’s about the story behind your clothes." - Dana Frost (@DanaFrost)
Sustainability In Style
Katie Roberts, the founder of Sustainability In Style and an environmental scientist, puts what she studied into practice. In 2011 she started blogging.

"Slow fashion has provided me with a platform to discuss sustainability related topics and practice the delivery of sustainability education techniques that I have learned through my masters studies. Fashion is an easily accessible and understandable consumer good for shoppers to start making sustainable and ethical purchasing decisions. It is also an area where people (usually) put a little thought into their purchases which means it's a great place to provide tools and knowledge for consumers to find items that fit their values." - Katie Roberts (@Sustaininstyle)

"The more I learn about sustainability and the natural balance of ecosystems - the more I'm convinced that nothing we do will really ever 'benefit' the planet. Our sheer existence puts more demand on the earth than it can naturally provide. The reason slow fashion resonates with me is because it's one step we can take to alleviate some demand on the earth and stave off harmful impacts. We can't go wrong with a slower approach because 1. it reduces resources, and 2. it gives us more time to do research that might make way for new, zero-waste technologies (think: closed loop manufacturing). Slow fashion can lead to better conditions for workers because business practices come under more scrutiny. While this doesn't have a direct scientific correlation to the planet, I think when humans are treated fair they will channel their sense of happiness into how they treat the earth - better. I advocate for Slow Fashion through my writing on The Peahen and call on both brands and consumers to help change the industry. My call to action is #SlowDownMyClothes" - Kasi Martin (@PeahenBlog)
Kate Arnell, a tv-presenter and the founder of Eco Boost, 'spots' and shares and you can benefit from her findings. However, this blog is not just about what trendy sustainable brands or items are out there. The why of 'going slow' is also important and in the articles on this blog 'the why' is very clear.
"I think slow fashion is also about understanding the whole story of each garment and appreciating the joy each carefully chosen piece brings. Knowing that the people who made my clothes were treated fairly and with respect as well as paid well for their work without being exposed to harmful chemicals brings a sense of empowerment to each garment. It's time we owned our clothes with pride, instead of our clothes owning us with guilt and insecurity." - Kate Arnell (@EcoBoostBlog)
Natalie started her blog in July of 2014. As a fashion major she got quite familiar with the ins and outs of the fashion industry.

Better yet the articles focus on how you can impact the world around you through your fashion choices.
"Besides putting in the effort to reduce our carbon print, slow fashion truly enables us to experience and appreciate the work which goes into creating the garments. Fashion shouldn't be easy or disposable. Why fall in love with a dress you can only wear a few times? My clothes.. I'll have them for life, and I'll know exactly who made them." - Natalie Kay Smith (@sustainablychc)

"We are big fans of slow fashion because we strongly believe in taking those around you with you on your success journey. Without awareness of the people, processes and impact your clothes have, how can you truly say you respect those who contribute to your vanity. Every person (and indeed the planet we live on) deserves to be treated equally without letting greed cloud your vision of what success really means. We believe everybodys live scan be enriched along the way to a more ethical fashion future" - Katie & Diana George (@saiintgroup)
The Note Passer

Well, The Note Passer has a huge recommendations section, where you can find stores and brands that will fit your sustainable (life)style.
"I'm attracted to slow fashion because it respects the resources, time, and energy that go into creating a garment. Slow fashion also rejects marketing tactics that makes me feel like I have to catch up or else be out of step with the current fashion. When I choose timeless, quality, ethically-made garments, that kind of marketing loses its power over me and I am happier as a result." - Elizabeth Stilwell (@)
The American Edit
The founder of The American Edit is Rita Mehta. Part of sustainability with regards to fashion is knowing how and where your purchases are made. This blog focuses on brands that manufacture locally.

However, she does not just spot individuals with a cool fashion style, Jennifer shares a lot of the amazing things she discovers with regards to sustainable fashion.
"I prefer Slow Fashion because I prefer quality over quantity and classics over fads. I shop almost exclusively at thrift stores, so I come in contact with fast fashion. Honestly,I don't understand the appeal. It looks cheap, it feels cheap, and it drapes poorly. If the goal is to look good and save money then let's all look at old photos for inspiration. People used to have far few items in their wardrobe but I would argue that they look better than we do now. Our goal should be to build a wardrobe of good quality pieces that fit well. We can still show off our individuality with high-quality accessories, a thoughtful cuff, and a sincere smile." - Jennifer Moore (@recovergirl)
The creative mind behind Leotie Lovely considers herself a curator, not a designer. But in all fairness after seeing her clutches we think she certainly belongs in our designer category. That being said Leotie Lovely is about more than creating. For some inspiration follow her #gonegreen2016 journey.
"What attracts me to slow fashion, in addition to the fact that it is better for the planet and her inhabitants, is that brands who genuinely take the meaningful steps of cradle-to-cradle creation, develop garments which are privy to a kind of love most clothing will never know. If you're familiar with Dr. Masaru Emoto's water molecules experiment you might agree this could produce results you could have never imagined. The threads which unite the slow fashion community are symbolic of conscious culture as a whole; it goes beyond fashion, it's a lifestyle, it's a revolution, it's about genuinely trying to be the change you wish to see in the world. If "you are what you wear", as the mainstream fashion industry so often threatens, I can't consciously choose to support anything else." - Leotie Lovely (@LeotieLovely)
The creative woman behind Randomly Happy is Elena. One way to create a sustainable wardrobe is by making your own and with Elena’s tips, tricks and DIY’s you can surely succeed in your own projects.
"I think slow fashion is ethical fashion. Sewing my own clothes makes me feel proud, but I don't think that's how many workers in the garment industry feel as they work for low wages in deplorable conditions. I think everyone deserves a chance to feel proud. We should all question the real value of fast fashion." - Elena (@randomly_happy)

"Slow fashion is buying clothing with intention. You are more conscious and aware of the story behind each piece of clothing when you buy from an ethically made or eco-friendly fashion brand.

Mongolia is the world’s second largest supplier of luxury fibres, contributing to the €60 billion luxury apparel market. The fashion industry is experiencing, first-hand, the detrimental impact that economic and environmental challenges are having on the source of much of its premium raw materials. The current landscape is unsustainable and we must make a change. Fashion shouldn’t cost the earth – people and animals should not be harmed in the making of it." Nancy (@_BroadShoulders)

An experience she shares through her blog, but also as an Eco stylist and commentator on a huge breakfast television program in Australia.
"While living overseas, thrift shopping was all I could afford so I had to find a way to make it look expensive for all the meetings and job interviews I had. So I hit British vogue again and challenged myself to recreate the dreamy expensive style I saw inside. It worked! When I returned to Australia I pitched my concept of 'Recreating looks for less' to a TV station here and they loved it. Then I pitched the concept to the Salvation Army and they loved it too. Three years later I am now their full time Eco stylist and a fashion commentator on Australia's Today show. But if you'd told me 10 years ago I would be an Eco stylist I wouldn't have been able to tell you what the was. My job didn't exist, I created it. I love that slow fashion has the power to break down boundaries! Style isn't about how much you spend or having the newest and the best. You can absolutely look a million bucks without having to spend it. So now I am absolutely obsessed with what I call Eco Chic, showing people the power of preloved and ethical fashion. It is absolutely just as stylish and protecting the planet makes you even more chic in my book." - Faye De Lanty (@fayedelanty)

On her blog you can find a clear green guide, that shows what aspects of producing and consuming fashion are important to keep in mind.
"For me, slow fashion is about intention. When we slow down we create time and hold space to ask ourselves key questions before we make a purchase. Is this item aligned with my ethics? Does it support the practices and world I believe in? Does it fit into my life and sense of self? Will it bring me joy for years to come and not just a few weeks? With slow fashion we get a slower, more intentional design and manufacturing process. We also get a more conscious level of participation on the consumer side where each purchase is thoughtful and incorporated into the long term." - Greta Eagan (@gretaeagan)

The main thing for me is to be unique and we cannot buy this kind of quality in regular shops." - Natalia Viktorovna (@Glamourinapl)

Whether you're buying second-hand, or from a fairly-paid and valued artisan, or supporting a fledgling business that's doing wonderful things in the realm of vegan, zero-waste, eco-friendly, etc, these clothes tell a story, and that story is wildly different and more positive than the stories imbued in the fibers of fast fashion.
