Buying fast fashion is fun and easy right? Wrong! More and more people are becoming conscious of how little things they do can have a big effect on the environment and climate. One of the great ways you can get involved is making the choice to visit independent clothing stores, rather than big chains. Choosing an independent means that, not only are you supporting local businesses that work tremendously hard, but you are also getting involved in the movement to end fast fashion and help save the planet! Here are our top 5 picks for independent clothing stores in Brixton.
