    Fast fashion is easy on the wallet, but the environment pays a high price.

    As fads change quickly, what is no longer considered on-trend is often discarded.

    But many are coming round to the idea of a more ethical and sustainable approach to clothing.

    Slow fashion aims to halt mindless consumption, excessive production and overcomplicated supply chains.
