Karina Manarin, Latest Line I Love....

Posted: Mar 11 2015

   The wait is over as I excitedly received my first shipment from a designer after my own heart, Karina Manarin. She is the latest in my recently curated selection of designers who are pioneering what has become known as the "Slow Fashion Movement." In the future I'll be referencing this steadily growing trend more and more. For now, let me highlight a few of the Slow Fashion Movement's virtues: a return to purpose and intention woven into the fabric of each garment, the practice of incorporating all aspects of production into the price of the garment--not just its finished and  perceived aesthetic value, and the encouragement to build one's wardrobe with an awareness of its impact on all involved in the manufacturing process. Karina Manarin designs, dyes, and constructs all of her garments with minimal impact on Nature, to whom she also credits her inspiration. These pieces were well worth the wait and a valuable reminder to slow down :)  (all photos courtesy of Karina Manarin  http://shop.karinamanarin.com/)
