Need to hinder your style utilization? Here are a couple of things you can do 

Patch what you effectively possess
Ms. Sheahan said numerous individuals still purchase new bits of apparel, as opposed to fixing something as straightforward as a messed up catch — despite the fact that most garments have an extra sewn into their mark.

Sewing units are generally modest and an essential one ought to have enough hues to cover your closet, Ms. Sheahan said.

In the event that you have never done it, there are abundant recordings which tell the best way to do straightforward fixes to things of the dress.

Yet, on the off chance that despite everything you are not sure, getting a tailor to rapidly fix a catch is generally still less expensive than purchasing a substitution.

"There are still things like your neighborhood tailors you can go to or a shoe repairer," Ms. Sheahan said.

Don't feel like you have to keep up with trends

The apparently endless stock of runway-prepared attire currently hitting the racks puts weight on buyers to stay aware of the most recent patterns, Ms. Sheahan said. 

She said numerous individuals view design as an expendable piece of life — however, she needs that frame of mind to change. 

"Instead of ignoring [a thing of clothing] and discarding it, you can cherish it, bring it back in, and afterward just basically get something new," she said. 

Ms. Sheahan said quite a bit of society was as yet not happy with the idea of re-wearing, swapping and sharing garments, yet trusts it will, in the long run, become the vogue.

Buy second-hand or borrow where possible

ABC's War on Waste program revealed that Australians dispose of an estimated six tonnes of clothing waste every 10 minutes.
According to the University of Queensland, 80 billion pieces of new clothing are consumed globally each year.

Ms. Sheahan said buying items from second-hand clothing stores could result in a refreshed wardrobe without adding to textile waste.
"I find there's a lot of freedom when it comes to second-hand, not only in terms of affordability but also in terms of style. You can really explore," she said.

Ask questions about the purchases you do make

Ms. Duff said asking fashion brands about their processes and waste management was another way to spark change.

"Hit up the brands that you've already purchased from and just find out what their processes are," she said.
"Sometimes it is a really great push for brands to start thinking about that as well."

Ms. Duff said despite what some people think, slowing down fashion consumption does not mean compromising on style.

"I think one of the big challenges with thinking about moving into slow fashion is a fear that somehow it will compromise your own personal style because you won't have access to the brands that you love," she said.

The SLOW Fashion Festival started on Friday and runs until September 27.
