Fashion Shift Now was born out of the realisation that we don't need to go naked in order to be stylish, AND keep the world in good shape. The world of slow fashion offers us countless alternatives to filling our wardrobes with clothes that we love, that we need, and that the planet loves too. The days of stinky second-hand shops and ethical-is-only-for-hippies are over.
Stylish & affordable responsible brands, clothes swaps, clothes libraries, and other circular economy concepts are sprouting out of the ground. So, what are we waiting for?! For many of us, it's about habits and information. How to know where to start? Where to find stylish and affordable responsible clothing? Where are the cool events? What is really fair and sustainable, and what is not?
This is where Fashion Shift Now comes in. More than simply awareness-raising, Fashion Shift Now is a community that invites people to come into action by choosing a slow fashion challenge in the size S, M or L. The Fashion Shift Now Facebook EVENT serves as community blog where the experience becomes real, shared and connected! Fashion shifters can register on our website, and make use of our Slow Fashion SHOPPING GUIDE tool -- tailored for you to be stylish, affordable and constantly updated.
Fashion Shift Now is about facilitating the transformation of values into action by connecting people with alternatives, and vice versa. Save the planet: don’t go naked, become a Fashion Shifter.
