In science, a wave is defined as a transfer of energy, and I feel like part of the recent cultural introspection in fashion, that, although not entirely complied with, all across the border, has become a wave. A transfer of energy to groups not generally thought of much in fashion. It is easier now, more than ever, to make a product ethically, and to be a conscious consumer.
This coming weekend, as a consumer I have chosen to be mindful of the impact of my choices, and as a maker, I am leaving the pursuit of massive revenue to the corporate overlords and profit driven opportunists. You can always count on me for sales and discounts, but not without a purpose, not on black friday.
I am part of the wave.
