Slow Fashion and 21st Century Enlightenment


Localflux is currently featuring a wonderful interview with Kate Fletcher on slow fashion.

According to Fletcher, the real call to action for slow fashion thinking and systems is the “challenge to industrial ideologies of production and consumption.”

Be sure to pop on over to Localflux to read the interview.

But while I have you, and while we’re on the subject, I’d like to take this opportunity to post a relevant RSA Animate from 2010: 21st Century Enlightenment, by Matthew Taylor.
