Have you seen this amazing art installation? It showcases the artist’s vision of all of the clothes a person wears in a lifetime. What a wonderful way to make numbers tangible. One of the main tenants of slow fashion is to Buy Less, Choose Well, Make it Last, so all of our lifetime closets don’t look like this. 🌎 #Repost @vonwong ・・・ It's so hard to explain numbers sometimes until you get the chance to experience the scale of it. With the Tallest Closet In The World, we wanted people to have a sense of empowerment to believe in their own ability to affect the size of their own closet. Clothing has a massive environmental foot print and is something that we can individually control. Its an attempt at something new but Im really excited to see it come to life! #tallestcloset

Big things are in the works for the 3rd annual @the@thesustainablefashionforum in Portland, Oregon, in April 2019. This 2 day conference will connect a wide variety of folks who are interested in making change in the fashion industry. The idea is to gather all of this positive power together to discuss, learn, collaborate, share and inspire with speakers, panels, a fashion show and much more. 🌍The creator of one of our favorite podcasts will be there —Kestrel Jenkins of @consciouschatter — so exciting! 🌎 Tickets are now available! Perhaps this is a good excuse for a trip to Portland? . . . #Repost @thesustainablefashionforum

Here’s a helpful guide from @sus@sustainsister. One of the things to consider when choosing slow fashion is fabric. What are your clothes made of? Where did that fabric come from? Was it grown, manufactured using petroleum or upcycled? ・・・ #repost @sustainsister

Check out interdisciplinary artist Jea Alford’s newest project @art@artistuniforms. It’s a small, sustainably produced, Portland-based clothing line of functional and minimalist artist smocks operating under the buy one get one model – a practicing artist receives a smock when you buy one. Follow the link in the @artistuniforms bio for the Kickstarter if you want to learn more! In Jea’s words: “This project aims to spark a conversation around what it means to give and to get, what it looks like to work as an artist, the role of art and aesthetics in class dynamics, and the art world’s relationship to structures of wealth and inequity. This project also builds community by directly connecting working artists to one another, and to art supporters. With your contribution, Artist Uniforms can launch from the ground up, while generating a conversation about economy and aesthetics, and outfitting artists to do the culture-making work they do, in style.” ...

Thanks for sharing another way to connect through slow fashion @ter@terrigardner_meadowtree. ・・・ #repost @terrigardner_meadowtree #slo#slo#slowfashionchallenge Really the last day! How has this month’s experience influenced me? I am an advanced style blogger with a leaning towards slow fashion. For a year I’ve sponsored a monthly linkup on my blog Meadowtreestyle.com. Until this month, my linkup has only been for styling with 2nd hand items. I was thinking seriously about expanding the linkup to more slow fashion ideas. When I found this challenge, it was like a sign and starting tomorrow my 1st Friday linkup is much more inclusive including ideas such as: fair trade items, swapped it with a friend, made for life, locally produced to name just a few. If anyone participating this month wants to link up in blog-land, please check out Meadowstyle.com June 1st and join the party. In my book, #slowisthewaytogo #slowfashionchallenge, #slowfashion, #ethicalfashion, #fairtrade, #worldfashion, #buylocal, #memade, #clothingswap
