It has been quite a while since we’ve posted on here!
I just wanted to leave a note that over the holiday season, it was important to take a step back and spend time with family like we haven’t been able to do in a couple of years. While we are all still feeling the impacts of COVID, it was good to step away if even for just a short time to take a break. Taking time off is not an easy choice to make, especially for a small business where there is no one else to pick up the slack.
One reflection on the past two years, though, is how important it is to support small businesses. The alternative, slow fashion sector has been hammered by COVID. Destructive fast fashion has been bolstered by the stratospheric rise of online shopping, lining the pockets of those who need it least while continuing the devastation of the environment.
Our hope for the year to come and beyond is that we can continue to give you a better way forward, better options for your wardrobe and the planet, and new ways to introduce yourself to the concept of slow fashion.
We are very fortunate that nearly all of our designers have been able to power through the pandemic, finding innovative ways to stay afloat and create new designs for you. While maybe not as robust as before, our independent designers have new collections recently released or coming soon. Our all-black aesthetic has been revived with a bit of colour. Fan favourite silhouettes have been given an update. Innovative design has continued with brand new iterations.
Our collective release from the pandemic is slow going, but it is seemingly just on the horizon. It has been an interesting couple of years, 2022 really can only get better!
