BESPOKE: GROWING ECO FASHION IN HARLEM
Not only is Mariell Ejiama organic in nature but the design duo are also part of the Slow Fashion movement. This is a direct opposition to Fast Fashion which larger corporate world uses to produce high volume, cheap items that are basically meant to be worn for only one season before the next trend hits. Slow Fashion entails locally produced products made in smaller runs and shuns mass production from questionable supply chains in the far reaches of the globe. Knowing where and who made your clothing is a big part of Slow Fashion and a direct connection to the community is also of great importance.
