If clothes could talk...

A growing number of 'iconoclasts', are turning their backs to the fast-fashion lifestyle and choose “alternative fashion experiences,” like clothing swaps. 

These are exactly the people that are going to be interviewed for the "Local Wisdom" project of the Parsons The New School of Design in New York. People are bringing their favourite garment, share the history of it, and are being photographed wearing the item. 

“This project celebrates the people who are finding riches and abundance within the limits of the stuff they already own,” the project leader says. “In tough economic times many are questioning whether our thirst for material goods is actually making us happy. So the challenge explored by Local Wisdom is how to pace consumption rather than maximize it.”

Sounds like a very cool project, look forward to see the outcome!
