It’s so easy to hop on your favourite fast fashion website, order three of everything and click “next-day delivery” without a second thought. Shopping sustainably is difficult and also quite pricey if you don’t know where to look.
Luckily, the guys at Fashion Revolution are here to shake those unsustainable habits out of you with Melbourne’s Slow Fashion Market.
The Slow Fashion Market is Melbourne's first sustainable and ethical fashion market for new clothing. It’s an event for people who care about how their fashion is made and who made it—and if you’re not on that bandwagon yet, watch a few documentaries like The True Cost, and maybe you’ll think twice about purchasing that $5 t-shirt (unless the reason it's $5 is because it comes from an op-shop, of course).
The Slow Fashion Market is part of Fashion Revolution Day Aus NZ, a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry. You can browse through clothing and accessories from 40 different independent brands. All the brands at The Slow Fashion Market are all about quality, durability, and using sustainable and non-toxic materials. They either make the pieces themselves or pay their workers a fair wage, so you can shop until you drop with a clear conscience.
The one-day event will take place on Saturday 27 April at the Coburg Town Hall.
