Can your fashion purchases truly impact the environment? Absolutely. Not only does intentional and thoughtful purchasing mean you’ll seek out items that are intentionally made, you’ll also find that you will enjoy items that are more durable, beautiful and enduring. And those items can be used for years and even be passed on to future generations.
This is true in the bridal industry, as well. In a world where a few quick clicks can order inexpensive trinkets and poorly constructed garments, make time to seek out gowns, shoes, accessories and handbags that are not only beautiful but constructed from quality materials using slow fashion practices. And take your good intentions a step further: purchase from companies not only dedicated to slow fashion, also select brands that give back in some way. Many couture organizations support a wide variety of non-profits that work to end issues such as hunger, poverty, childhood marriage, discrimination and much more.
