This month, while NY fashion week coverage takes over Instagram feeds and industry conversations, we reflect on the nature of these cycles. If we want the change to happen, the action needs to come within. According to True Cost movie from 2015, the average American generates 82 pounds of textile waste each year. We as customers and industry professionals can slow this rhythm of over production / consumption more than we think. if we make conscious choices together, with the same vision in mind - we will see the changes in the industry faster than we may imagine. There’s a power in the synergy and conversations of Balanced Fashion is set to foster. On September 27th we are kicking off our first Clothing Swapping event and partnering with swap events experts at Global Fashion Exchange to make it a seamless experience for everyone. The event series will take place at The Canvas by Querencia Studio at 904 Lexington Avenue. Clothing swaps are intended to provide our community with a chance to reduce the amount of underutilized items in their life and replace with those with a chance higher use and utilization. On the evening of 27th, we will host a talk on Conscious Shopping presented by Nataliya Makulova, a conscious business consultant and Balanced Fashion Founder. We will hosta panel discussion influencers in the sustainable space in NYC focused on conscious consumption.
