Why we feel good calling ourselves “A Canadian slow fashion house” :
WHAT IS SLOW FASHION?
Slow fashion is a term that was coined in response to fast fashion, a business model used by large retailers where they quickly and cheaply produce styles and trends seen on the runways in mass amounts. They are then sold in their many stores at incredibly low prices. This results in consumers buying excess amounts of cheap and low-quality clothing which may be worn just once or twice before it is discarded.
Slow fashion resides at the opposite end of this spectrum, promoting well-crafted garments that are designed for longevity. All the while, the impact on the environment is minimized and the well-being of the makers is prioritized.
HARLY JAE & SLOW FASHION
We apply the slow fashion framework to the following elements of our business: design, textiles, production, packaging, overstock, waste, and growth. Please read below for all the juicy details :)
