The Second Annual

slow fashion symposium

Last year, COCO + MISCHA held a sold-out panel discussion on slow fashion. This year the event has grown into a multi-day community gathering to inspire, encourage and educate participants about the merits of slow fashion via styling, brand awareness, and sustainability advocacy. The goal is to inspire conscious consumerism whether that means introducing the idea to unfamiliar shoppers or reinvigorating and connecting those already practicing.

Ponce City Market

 

Ponce City Market is Atlanta’s largest reuse project reinvented in 2014 in an old Sears & Roebuck brick warehouse. Its focus is on building community connections encompassing retail, dining, businesses, residences, public green spaces, and access to the Atlanta BeltLine corridor—all within the revitalized historic property.

From James Beard Award winning local chefs to indie boutiques with a focus on sustainability, Ponce City Market is a local social hub and a tourist attraction in the middle of one of Atlanta’s most vibrant and centrally located neighborhoods. With regular weekend foot traffic of over 20,000 visitors per day, Ponce City Market is equipped to host visitors and provide a playground between sessions.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Ethical and sustainable fashion is not a product. It’s a practice. It’s a movement. Everyone is invited to participate. There’s no obligation to buy. And you can get started right now. Today.
