Slow Fashion Season Challenge: The Last Update

Slow Fashion Season

This year’s Slow Fashion Season challenge ended on September 21st. I explained the challenge in detail here, if you’d like to read about it.

The Slow Fashion Season Challenge was created by Collaction and the basics are that, from June 21st to September 21st, participants were to buy no new clothing. Second hand shopping and swaps are allowed. The point of the challenge is to draw attention to the wasteful nature of fast fashion.

Everlane Review: a review of the pieces I’ve purchased myself

Everlane Review: Everlane How to Wear; Everlane What to Buy; What is Everlane known for?

I’ve written a couple Everlane reviews before but I was sent the pieces for those posts. Today I want to talk you through the Everlane pieces I’ve purchased with my own money.

Slow Fashion Summer – An Update

A little over a month ago I committed to the Slow Fashion Summer for 2019. I wrote about it in some detail here so I’ll try not to repeat myself. Collaction created the challenge, in which participants buy no new clothing (second hand or swapped is ok) for three months. The challenge this season runs from June 21st to September 21st. Their aim was to get 10,000 participants. Currently there are 14,487 people taking part. The point of the challenge is to draw attention to the wasteful nature of fast fashion, one of the world’s biggest polluters.
