The slow fash­ion move­ment, whereby pieces are painstak­ingly con­structed us­ing labour-in­ten­sive ar ti­san tech­niques, has cre­ated a bustling scene that in­cludes Faus­tine Stein­metz (who picks apart old denim pieces thread by thread in or­der to weave them all to­gether again); her friend and ex-flat­mate Danielle Romeril, whose tex­ture-heavy, de­tailed pieces of­fer some­thing for the mod­ern prairie girl; and the lim­ited-edi­tion Vita Kin, the Ukrainian ris­ing star whose col­lec­tions ap­pear in store only when her heavy hand-em­broi­dery work is ready. And the Aus­tralian Kim Steven­son’s Au­ton­o­mous Col­lec­tions feeds off her love of global cul­tures – earn­ing her a one-to-watch nod from the Fash­ion Scout ini­tia­tive and her first LFW show. Some­thing for the thought­ful fash­ion-lover.
