Dressing For Time

JP Gualthier Denim Jacket

It's a paradoxical time in fashion. New information and old knowledge confound our daily ritual of getting dressed.

It takes time to choose the right outfit for a special occasion.   Especially in the growing awareness that our cheap consumption comes at a high cost to people and planet. 

The new rules for fashion have yet to pass the test of time, while assumptions and values muddle the message when the medium is clothes.

Buying decisions beyond cheapest price require effort. And creating garments with field to fashion integrity like the Peggy Sue Collection needs more than runway applause to succeed.
