Hello & welcome to 'i give 2 hoots'. I am very excited to start a space which aims to acknowledge people's successes and inspire others to become involved in the slow fashion movement.
Who am I?
I started the blog Fickle Sense with my sister in 2010. Fickle Sense has mainly featured my sewing/design ventures, my finance's awesome photography & everyday happenings. I also have my own Fickle Sense etsy store where I produce eco friendly accessories and garments.
Why start a slow fashion blog?
I believe that slow fashion is an absolute necessity for the fashion industry and it is the only way forward! I also believe that there are many different ways in which we can choose to be apart of the movement. That is why I have devised these four categories; creator, enthusiast, nostalgics, minimalist. Have a look at the table below!
What category do I fall into?
I would consider that I am a mixture.
1. A Creator.
I make nearly all of my own clothes & I make garments & accessories for my store
2. An Enthusiast
I endeavour to source eco type textiles. I really try to use as much organic & fairtrade / or second hand materials as possible.
3. A Nostalgic
I go to markets and second hand stores to source garments for refashioning or (if it is the right size and style) to wear.
Who can be listed on the blog?
Those of you who are engaging in activities which fall into any of these four 'i give 2 hoots' categories I would love to hear from you! I totally believe that there are so many people out there flying the slow fashion flag in their own way (maybe you don't even know that you are engaging in slow fashion practices). It is about time that we acknowledge those who are doing the right thing in there own way, and this is the space that is doing just that.
