  • Slow Fashion: Aesthetics meets ethics. With full-color photography and elegant design, Slow Fashion profiles the people bringing the alternatives to the mainstream: designers, labels, and eco-concept stores across the world; fair trade producers; and campaigns that are re-designing the fashion economy.
