Stop following fast fashion

Other | Tuesday 31st January 2017 | Annalisa

It's easy to get caught up in the world of fast fashion. You are constantly surrounded by it every day; there's an H&M on almost every street corner but there are a few easy steps you can take to disentangle your world from the fast fashion bubble.

The first is simple; stop following high profile fast fashion brands on social media! Give yourself space from a consistent barage of clothes, looks and outfits that not only do you not need, but hurt the environment and many people along the way. 

Swap these for something inspiring; follow Instagram accounts like StoriesBehindThings promoting the wonders of second hand, pre-loved pieces, zady, making clothes that last a lifetime and fash_rev who promote the true cost of fashion.

It seems ethical & sustainable fashion is becoming a much more popular subject but you can help make it so. Talk about it with you friends, organise clothes swap with your peers and start finding your favourite charity shops. It might take a while to scout out spots where you can find gems but once you've got these, make the trip & you'll be surprised what you can find!
