all about slow sessions
As women, we love to connect with each other through shared experiences. A coffee together in our favourite café. A walk with our kids on the beach. Some weekend shopping together at a local market.
Slow Sessions provide ethically-curious women space to connect over a love of clothes and a desire to consume more consciously. The session can be completely personalised by you and your group of friends. You might organise a sophisticated evening of wine, cheese and beautiful clothes, or a morning tea catch up with coffee, delicious treats and engaging, ethically-minded conversation. Whatever the format, there is zero judgement or guilt, zero pressure to purchase, just a beautiful, feel-good experience that will leave you and your friends feeling inspired and empowered.
how it works
- Gather your friends, family and/or colleagues at a location of your choice – your home, a friend’s lounge room, your workplace, in the middle of a forest… We can do (and have done) them anywhere really!
- Organise some drinks and nibbles, or request that each guest bring a snack to share. Go low key with some simple coffee and home-baked goodies or go all out with a night-in with champers, wine and cheese.
- Bring your open and curious mind to the Slow Session, as we come together to learn, share and laugh our way through three inspiring and empowering mini-sessions:
AN OVERVIEW OF ETHICS AND FASHION
Sit back with a drink in hand as we begin by walking through the current state of play in the fashion industry. We’ll break down what can seem like an overload of information into a simple and insightful conversation. When we know better, we can do better, and this session will provide loads of research-based insights to help you on your way and inspire you to think differently.
HOW AND WHERE: ETHICAL CLOTHING YOU’LL LOVE
Next up, we dig into the practical to help you take small steps towards a more ethical and sustainable wardrobe. Ultimately clothes are a tool for self-expression and should reflect both your style and your values. We will arm you with loads of practical tips and resources (think fabrics to choose and avoid, where to shop for different types of clothing, what certifications mean and more), so you’ll leave not only inspired but with clear next steps in making the best clothing choices you can.
FIND YOUR OWN ETHICAL STYLE
45 - 60 minutes
Finally, you have the opportunity to explore a range of lovingly curated pieces that will not only make perfect sense for your lifestyle but make you feel confident that you’re helping to drive positive change. From underwear and yoga wear to beautifully designed basics and statement pieces, you’ll be able to see the natural dyes and touch the diverse fabrics of pieces from over 8 of our personal favourite labels. Each is ethically heart-centred and made with sustainability at their core. Choose a favourite or two to purchase, or just enjoy browsing through the beautiful collection. There is zero pressure to buy, just an unwavering passion to share our love of ethical clothing.
