Slow Fashion: Stylish, Sustainable and Ethical

Slow fashion or sustainable fashion is the opposite of fast fashion. Fast fashion clothing is often produced in poor working conditions. Many of the international clothing brands and fashion shops no longer buy from sweatshops but opt for Fair-trade garments that are produced in decent working conditions. The latest fashion trend is to go for sustainable clothing. This market is on the rise and more and more brands are jumping on the bandwagon. Prices may be slightly higher, but buying slow fashion means everyone, from producer to wearer, pays a fair price.

Slow fashion: Fairtrade and Sustainable Clothing

Slow fashion is hot! When it comes to sustainable clothing, buying second-hand is one of the best options because the garments have already been produced. If you want something new, go for slow fashion. You can be sure that these garments are Fair-trade and sustainable and produced under fair conditions. You will also find more and more trendy, sustainable and fair fashion boutiques in Prague.
