Slow fashion brands in Vancouver to know

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Fresh off the heels of the controversial Shein pop-up, many fashionistas may want to support local slow fashion without compromising looking chic. Here are some slow fashion brands to know that call Vancouver home.


      Get the Missoni look without the guilt with KSLAM, an ethical brand focused on using and repurposing deadstock fabrics. Since designer Casey Lamb does not produce new fabric for her designs, each item is created in small batches with limited runs. 

      KSLAM is sold online and at local retailers One of a Few and Nouvelle Nouvelle.

      Rachel Sudbury

      For the ultimate cool person, Rachel Sudbury aims to have fun with her designs, which act as a social commentary on contemporary fashion. Often mixing materials (check out the long-sleeve top made of crew socks), her designs will have everyone asking, “Where did you get that?”

      Rachel Sudbury is sold online.

      Tams by Tam

      There was a time when every hot person you knew in Vancouver was rocking a Challah bag from Tams by Tam. Formerly based in Vancouver, the brand recently moved to Toronto but has kept its commitment to sustainability (and we still consider it one of our own). Named after the Jewish bread, the Challah tote features a woven style using deadstock fabrics and is made to order, meaning you can customize the size and colour of each piece.

      Tams by Tam is sold online.

      Atelier Tulpe

      Coquette style is here to stay, and Atelier Tulpe wants to make it sustainable. Its ethos is to design clothing that can be dressed up or dressed down, making it a statement piece and an everyday staple. The Bow-Tie vest is the embodiment of the multifunctional and can be worn fully closed, slightly opened, backwards or frontwards.

      Atelier Tulipe is sold online and at local retailer Siista.


      As the name suggests, Fyoocher aims to do better for the planet now and in the future. Using deadstock fabrics and being made to order gives Fyoocher the opportunity to offer an inclusive size range of 24 to 42 in all of its pieces. Its signature style is a panelled corset with a lace-up backing that can be worn on its own or as a layering piece.

      Fyoocher is sold online and at local retailer Collective Will.

      Nena Hansen

      With a commitment to sustainable fashion, Nena Hansen repurposes the button-up with a modern vibe with side cut-outs featuring an adjustable bungee cord for a more shapely silhouette (think of it as your modern peplum with a tailored look). Because each piece is upcycled, each piece is one of one, making it a unique find.

      Nena Hansen is sold online and at local retailer One of a Few.
