Slow Fashion - The New Slow Cooking?

Ok, so this isn't a food related post. It's my blog and I'll digress if I want to. Slow fashion is a movement to attain style with a lighter environmental footprint. It's about quality over quantity and clothing made in ways that respects other people and the environment. As part of the Sustainable Living Festival there's going to be a Slow Fashion Parade on February 20th, at Fed Square in Melbourne, but prior to that there's a clothes swap in Carlton next week.

It's a great opportunity to upgrade your wardrobe, exchanging those things you no longer wear or, as foodies let's face it, those things that no longer fit!

Hope to see you there!


  1. Oh, that's perfect, because after nearly a year of foodblogging, I have to say, nothing fits anymore! :)

    Seriously though, great idea. And I must confess, the environmental impact of fashion isn't something I've considered before...

  2. Just think about how much of the seasonal cheap fashion ends up in land fill! It's disappointing you're not in Melbourne Celia. It would fit perfectly with your frugal living posts too.
