Slow Living Fashion

Slow Living Fashion - not many, but better!

Slow Fashion is not a trend, it is a movement, a choice of lifestyle, a consciously sustainly way, less environmental wasting.

Slow Fashion is an expression that I met at the page of swedish Nature Protections website Naturskyddsföreningens
It is exactly what I have looked for and alomst was thinking of to mint myself. But I was thinking more Slow craft. Craftdo have this "slow" built in, I mean. That is what I want to connect with in my craftinga and in my vision; the respect and the valueing of crafting, materials, time and sustainilbility.

Slow Fashion is for fashionistas what Slow Food is to gourmets – an attitude to clothing that give priority to less, but of more quality clothing, less environmental wasting and often in a intresting and uniqe design. It is all about that fashion has to be long-range. That is then we can build a fashion industry with durability.

The expression Slow Living tells about a consciosly way to structure ones life, focusing on quality in life, where "less is more" a holistc way of looking at wellbeing. It is a lifestyle and a consumer behavior philosophy.

Honoré describes the Slow Movement thus:

"It is a cultural revolution against the notion that faster is always better. The Slow philosophy is not about doing everything at a snail’s pace. It’s about seeking to do everything at the right speed. Savoring the hours and minutes rather than just counting them. Doing everything as well as possible, instead of as fast as possible. It’s about quality over quantity in everything from work to food to parenting."

Professor Guttorm Fløistad summarizes the philosophy, stating:

"The only thing for certain is that everything changes. The rate of change increases. If you want to hang on you better speed up. That is the message of today. It could however be useful to remind everyone that our basic needs never change. The need to be seen and appreciated! It is the need to belong. The need for nearness and care, and for a little love! This is given only through slowness in human relations. In order to master changes, we have to recover slowness, reflection and togetherness. There we will find real renewal."

Slow Fashion, JohannaN

”Slow Fashion är en inställning till mode. Slow Fashion är när kvalitet går före kvantitet. När vi prioriterar färre och finare plagg och när hållbar produktion och minimal negativ miljöpåverkan är viktigt. Slow Fashion handlar inte om att sluta handla och konsumera eller om att välja bort vackra saker mot något tråkigare. Slow Fashion handlar istället om reflektion och prioritering. Det är ett tankesätt inom mode där eftertanke och medvetenhet står i fokus. Det handlar helt enkelt om mode när det är som bäst."
