Key Issues in Slow Fashion: Current Challenges and Future Perspectives
AbstractThe study seeks to explore and synthesize current issues in Slow Fashion and discuss potential future directions of the industry.

It affords latitude to individual style, fosters education about clothing and emphasizes durability. While several challenges regarding the implementation of Slow Fashion principles in current society remain, the study offers an overview of the current state, and presents a fashion matrix-based framework for outlining the position of the Slow Fashion movement within industry-specific fashion segments and uses the matrix to present current knowledge and review future challenges. The support of networks serves as an indispensable tool for Slow Fashion designers, keeping them abreast of the competition. View Full-Text
