TRYING TO GET YOU TO SHOP LESS
WHAT IS SLOW FASHION?
It is a concept of reducing waste, respecting people in the chain of production from farmers to designers, and uplifting the environment.

WHERE DO I START?
Take the time to discover your style. Save inspiration from Instagram, Pinterest, Tiktok, etc. What do you see yourself wearing for years to come?
