Too fast fashion

I’m so glad Alice Payne wrote Counting the cost of fast fashion in The Conversation this week, as I have a bit of a bee in my bonnet about all the cheap synthetic fast fashion filling up shops at the moment. It also seems that it is going to get even easier to impulse buy fast fashion with pop up billboard shops starting to hit the streets where you can buy from a billbard with your smart phone.

I also loved finding out about The Uniform Project where Sheena Matheiken wore the same dress for a year, styled in 365 different ways and did it all for a good cause. Inspiring! It reminded me of the little brown dress project I read about a few years ago.

If that statistic about conventional cotton accounting for one quarter of global pesticide use bothers you, Bassike are having a sale this weekend. Head down to Paddo for stylish organic cotton tees.
