I'm a big advocate of supporting small, and supporting local. I also love clothes.
Sometimes it's hard not to free-fall into fast-fashion. If you're the same, I'm here to help. We all love a slogan tee, and we all love supporting small Irish businesses. So here are four slow-fashion businesses with cracker products you'll want to wear!
Havin' A Lovely Time
Anyone else's mother send the dreaded question mark when you haven't been in touch in a few days?Or the double questions mark - no bueno. With this top, you don't even need to compose a message simply wear one of these tops and send her a pic. Job done and dusted. The brand's website states that their "...collections are slow-fashion conscious & designed to stay lovely for years to come." Gorge, we love that.
Shell's Cafe X Charlotte Loves
In a collaboration with Charlotte Loves, Shell's Cafe is now selling these FAB tie-dye jumpers. We absolutely love the slogan on the back; You, Me & The Sea. If you thought that was cute, there's something even more cute about these pieces... You can be matching with your mini-me! I'm not crying, you're crying.
All Things Fiona Lily
After working in high street stores, Fiona Lily saw the impacts of fast fashion and decided she wanted to make a positive impact on the world. The brand's Instagram bio says that they aim to save end of line stock from landfill; and from that stock she creates these amazing pieces with cute slogans!
We previously mentioned these guys as they donate 50% of their profits to Irish cancer charities. This is another staple you need in your wardrobe. Look good and know you're doing good things at the same time; supporting a small Irish business, donating to Irish cancer charities and giving cancer the big two fingers.
