"Slow fashion" represents a cohesive movement of sustainable and ethical practices as it relates to fashion design, manufacturing and consumption. It is an alternative to the typical “fast fashion” system of over-consuming clothing for the sake of dressing in the season’s latest trends. “Slow fashion” designers acknowledge that their decisions affect the environment and people and utilize local materials, suppliers and manufactures to create their garments. Designers of this movement ensure the longevity of their garments by purchasing higher quality fabrics, oftentimes handmade, and offering customers timeless pieces to be worn for many years.

This is a session we made with Yana Dvoteska - the designer behind YOD - a slow fashion label. All of the clothes are 100% handmade and for all of them only natural resources and fabrics have been used, colored by plants, found in the Bulgarian mountains.
