“The slow food movement began with an increased awareness and concern for where our food comes from and how that affects the world. The idea can also apply to fashion. Producing a garment for Lauren Pierce is such a lengthy process; each piece is truly one of a kind. The line features locally sourced fabrics hand-dyed by a group of women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. And the tag for each garment shows the handwritten signature of the artisan who dyed it, so there’s a sense of connection.”

Lauren Bush, co-founder and CEO of FEED Projects and the designer behind Lauren Pierce, in the July/August 2011 issue of Vegetarian Times.
