Slow Fashion

I was contacted via email by a researcher at the University of Helsinki about this short film on the Slow Fashion movement in Finland. The film is the result of academic research. It can be viewed in its entirely for free on Vimeo. Help spread the good word. #slowfashion

This research-based film explores how clothing designers and seamstresses in the Kallio neighborhood of Helsinki understand and practice sustainable fashion. It discusses contradictions of the concept of sustainability and emphasizes that sustainability should include responsibility towards nature and also towards people, including the designers and seamstresses themselves, who experience precarity because of tension between sustainability and profitability of their micro-enterprises.
