I’ll admit it: I was really late to the game when it comes to secondhand shopping. It wasn’t until this fall when I finally gave it a go, in the name of #secondhandseptember and my relatively new “Zero Waste” lifestyle. And you know what? I fell in love with it. It really is transformative, and along with some ethically produced slow fashion, it is the way of the future.
My next Fashion Week feature is Simply Merino. This Canadian slow fashion company makes merino wool clothing for babies and children—and they have some adult pieces now, too. Today I’m interviewing Shannon Dixon, the woman behind Simply Merino.

My next Fashion Week feature is Azura Bay. This Canadian company is an online curated collection of lingerie, pjs, and loungewear from ethical brands, using eco fabrics and production processes. Today I’m interviewing Ashley McIntosh, Azura Bay’s founder.
