SpongeBob SquarePants and his resilience should be emulated in a world rife with twisted moral compasses and bad-guy protagonists.
There’s slow cookers, slow motion, slow pokes… but what about slow style? This week on Sew & Tell, we take a look at a counter-culture movement within fashion that (unlike the rest of the industry) actually encourages shoppers to buy *less*. My guest is Crystal Grover, a member of the Slow Fashion Forward partnership and half of the talented design team INDO. Crystal works as both a sustainability-focused educator and interior architect, and on today’s show, she’ll talk about the key principles and values that underly the concept of slow fashion, the mission of SFF, her own design work with INDO, and Chicago’s growing slow craft scene. Plus, I have a slew of slow fashion resources for you on today’s playlist page, along with music in the mix from Alex Bleeker & The Freaks, Sonny & The Sunsets, Phosphorescent, UK classical electronic artist Jon Hopkins, and more. So ease into your weekend with this special slow-fashion-dedicated Sew & Tell, on BTR!
