Green is the new black, slow is the new fast

And so this is what I have been up to..............

Last week I attended a couple of seminars at the fashion expo, Fashion Exposed.

The first one was an inspiring talk by one of the founders of brilliant online shopping experience, The Grand Social.

As soon as I'm more organised I'll be adding them to my online presence.

So far I've set up online shops through Etsy, Big Cartel, Blue Caravan and Young Republic.

The second seminar I attended was a series of talks held by TCF Australia on becoming a 'GREEN' accredited fashion business, and how slow sustainable fashion must take over from fast throw away fashion.

I'm all inspired to make a difference and be as green as I can be. 

You can also make a difference by:

Buying the best quality you can afford.

Buying organic where you can.
Choosing recycle and vintage instead of chain store.
Buying quality items made locally. 
Re selling, donating or passing on instead of throwing out.

On a lighter note, Melbourne Spring Fashion Week has started. I'm  attending another talk 'In Our Own Backyard' on sustainability in fashion.

Are you attending anything?

If you are in sunny Melbourne get yourself into the city and support your local fashion industry.

Especially the green ones.
