What is sustainable fashion


Sustainable fashion is a growing movement that is changing the industry as we know it. It’s not just about wearing less and reusing everything, but also making sure that the clothes that are manufactured are made from sustainable materials and can be used over and over again. The goal of sustainable fashion is to stop wasting materials while still keeping fashion fun, exciting, and fashionable.

Sustainable fashion is made from materials that are sustainably sourced or are regenerated from our existing resources.

Sustainably sourced materials are those that were created or grown using ecologically sound methods. These processes reduce the impact on ecosystems, and may include:

  • Ethically sourcing fibers from sustainable farms, ranches and forests

  • Using recycled content in fabrics and other materials

  • Applying eco-certification standards to production

Designs that consider the environment and society over the entire lifespan of a garment.

Sustainable fashion is about designing for the long term. It puts an emphasis on making designs that are durable and long-lasting, with a focus on how a garment is made and how it will be repaired throughout its life.

Sustainable fashion designers work to create garments that are easily repaired or refurbished, instead of being thrown away after just one wear. They also aim for designs that last longer than your average fast fashion item—a top you’ll wear over and over again without needing new parts or accessories every season, rather than buying something new each time you go shopping.

Sustainable fashion maintains value on products and encourages consumers to buy less, but better.

Sustainable fashion maintains value on products and encourages consumers to buy less, but better. This means that it’s a good idea to buy fewer things, but the things you do buy should last longer. In order for this process to work sustainably, the clothing you purchase needs to be made of high-quality materials that can withstand years of wear and tear without falling apart. In addition to using materials that are durable enough to last through multiple seasons or even decades of use, sustainable fashion designers encourage their customers not only to reuse their clothes again and again but also recycle them (i.e., donate old clothes).

In addition to buying fewer garments from retailers who operate with low overhead costs in order keep prices low for consumers (and often at the expense of workers’ well-being), sustainable designers emphasize quality over quantity when it comes time for shoppers themselves select new pieces from their racks or shelves. They may charge more per item than mass-market brands do because they’re able buy better fabrics more affordably because they don’t have large advertising budgets; these factors allow them provide luxury items at affordable prices while still maintaining an ethical stance on how products are produced and sold within our economy’s global supply chain system.”

For sustainable fashion to minimise its impact, the garments need to be designed so they can be easily disassembled, re-used, upcycled or recycled safely at the end of their useful life.

  • Designing for disassembly. The most sustainable approach to textile design is to ensure that your garment can be easily disassembled and its components reused, upcycled or recycled safely at the end of their useful life. For example, fasteners such as buttons and zippers can be designed so they can be removed easily, enabling garments with accessories such as belts or embellishments to be taken off if no longer wanted and re-used in new ways.

  • Designing for re-use. A second way of minimising waste is designing your garments so that they are suitable for re-sale on the second-hand market without being damaged through wear or washing (e.g., using fabrics which don’t pill). This will help reduce the amount of textiles going into landfill, which has become a problem in many countries due to an increase in volume over recent years without adequate infrastructure investment from government agencies responsible for managing waste disposal facilities; it also helps keep these materials out of landfills where they release harmful greenhouse gases like methane as well as toxic chemicals such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).

Sustainable fashion should stand the test of time, quality-wise and style-wise.

It’s not just about the environment — a sustainable wardrobe should also last.

If you’re looking to invest in some new pieces, make sure they’re of good quality and style.

Quality is important because it means that the clothes will be able to withstand wear and tear over time. If you buy something that falls apart after only a couple wears, then it’s not worth spending your hard-earned cash on.

Style is also important because no one wants to wear boring clothing! Just like anything else, fashion trends come and go (and come back again), but there are always classic pieces that are worth investing in if you want them around for years to come. We recommend keeping an eye out for sales where retailers discount their best-selling items by 50% or more—that way you can get an amazing deal on high quality items without spending too much money upfront!

Buying fewer clothes that you really love is more environmentally friendly than buying disposable clothing that doesn’t last long

If you’re concerned about the impact on the planet of your clothing choices, sustainable fashion may seem like a daunting prospect. There’s no getting around it—buying fewer clothes is good for Mother Earth. But if you really want to be as environmentally friendly as possible, there are some things to keep in mind:

  • Buy fewer clothes, but better quality. In other words, buy things that you can wear for longer and can be worn with more outfits or situations. This will also save money in the long run because it means fewer items in your closet that require washing and drying (and thus using electricity).

  • Buy fewer clothes, but more versatile. Do your research beforehand so that when you find something on sale at a thrift store or garage sale (or online), it will work with what else is already in your closet without being too similar to anything already there—thus saving space! If necessary start fresh with only two pairs of pants/skirts/trousers etc., plus one dress; then add one new item every week until all holes have been filled again.* Buy fewer clothes…


If you want to make the world a better place, then start by making some changes in your own wardrobe slow fashion. There are so many ways that you can be more sustainable than ever before: buy less, but better quality; choose natural fabrics over synthetic ones; and of course, remember that recycling is just another way we can all help preserve our precious resources.
