|The increasing demands of the ‘fast’ fashion industry, the development of new technologies and the subsequent decline in time-consuming
traditional hand-based practices within the fashion industry are all driving a need to look at innovative ways of harnessing
creativity to address the complexities of the market through a consideration of time. Framing itself within the ethos of slow,
deriving from the Italian ‘Slow Food’ movement, this project will investigate how specific practices that encourage a consideration
and slowing down of time frames for design and manufacture would impact on the style markets, and examine how specific geographic
and cultural sites offer different temporalities of fashion in terms of consumption and production.
