The Importance of Sustainable Fashion

In an era where global concerns about the environment and social responsibility are paramount, the fashion industry is undergoing a profound transformation towards sustainability. Sustainable fashion is not just a passing trend; it's a necessary shift towards a more ethical and eco-conscious future. 

Traditional fashion practices often contribute to significant environmental degradation and it is more crucial than ever that society as whole works on reducing our environmental footprint. From excessive water usage to harmful chemicals and non-biodegradable materials, the industry's impact on the planet is undeniable. Sustainable fashion seeks to minimize this footprint by embracing eco-friendly materials, responsible manufacturing processes, reducing waste generation and encouraging the wearing of upcycled/ vintage clothing.

Sustainable fashion encourages a shift away from fast fashion's disposable culture. Jessica Armstrong's curated selections at ClosetIntuition encourage investment in high-quality, timeless pieces designed to last.  We also take it one step further by supporting animal cruelty brands such as Willa Phoenix, which produce gorgeous vegan leather shoes & accessories.  The Kensington heel & The Manhattan Clutch are a few of Jessica’s personal favorites.  This approach not only saves money in the long run but also reduces the strain on resources needed to produce new clothing items.




As consumers become more conscious of the impact of their choices, their purchasing power drives change in the industry.   Upclycled/ vintage clothing plays a huge role in this movement. Closet Intuition, offers a gorgeous selection of unique vintage finds by Sweeties Vintage.  Jessica is obsessed with the 80’s Two Piece Set & 80’s Linen Blazer!  




Sustainable fashion represents a paradigm shift in the way we view clothing and its impact on the world. By prioritizing ethical practices, embracing vintage pieces and avoiding throwaway fashion,  industry is evolving towards a more responsible and eco-conscious model. As individuals, our choices matter, and supporting sustainable fashion is not only a statement of style but also a commitment to a better world for current and future generations!
