SIXCHEL | THE SLOW FASHION CAPSULE COLLECTION

Founded by Dina Chavez, Austin based SixChel is a clothing brand that is changing the way we think about our wardrobes. Using slow fashion principles that oppose mass production and mindless consumerism, Sixchel have created a capsule wardrobe that not only supports the planet but also empowers and educates.

For our debut capsule collection, we are proud to have been able to create a look that is feminine, but also incorporates comfort and uses sustainable and cruelty-free fabrics that are cut and sewn in Brooklyn, NY,” Dina Chavez.

The collection consists of 4 figure-flattering, easy-to-wear affordable items that can be mixed and matched with each other thanks to the base light denim colour that can then be built upon with the block colour palette. The beautiful aspect of the capsule’s design is that you can tailor make each piece by choosing the fabric types and colours before you buy.

With mainstream fashion heavily relying on mass production that isn’t environmentally friendly or ethical, paired with clever glossy marketing campaigns, many of us have become reliant on consistent seasonal wardrobe updates, changes and the need for new things. It is thanks to brands such as SixChel that are focusing on slow design and wardrobe versatility that encourage positive change. This capsule collection is not just stylish and creative, but also makes us think about the way we buy and wear our clothes. Dina has created a collection that is based not on over complicated layering and multiple items, but on core interchangeable pieces that allow you to style various different looks using relatively little. As Westwood famously said:

BUY LESS | CHOOSE WELL | MAKE IT LAST
