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.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
