Fashion addicts from around the world, are taking part in the Free Fashion Challenge, in an agreement to stop buying new clothes for one year.
"The ‘fashion addicts’ are a mix of fashion students and fashion professionals. Every fortnight they will share their experiences on this website, based on assignments. Some participants will get their own assignments, as going cold turkey on a fashion addiction is not the same for everyone"
"Over the last few decades fashion has become more and more about consumption. Fashion became fast fashion and clothes have become disposable. Generations are growing up believing that a t-shirt truly can be made for 50 cents. With the Free Fashion Challenge we want to find out what the meaning of consumption is within the definition of fashion."
I have to be honest, I don't know if I could do this! Op shops, garage sales, markets etc are all too tempting.
Could you stop purchasing any garments for one entire year? You too can join in the challenge if you want to by signing up here. Big respect you if you do!
