Hello from Moria (pronounced like Mariah), one of the community moderators of the slow fashion community on Lucky Sweater. I live in Atlanta with my husband, tween angel, and half Aussie/Catahoula, Merle. My slow fashion journey began in early 2017. Some of the first influencers I followed led me to Pyne & Smith, Tradlands, and Elizabeth Suzann. It sorta snowballed from there.

I’m part of Lucky Sweater because using tech to create community and achieve goals is very inspiring. Trading is such a personal way to build a sustainable wardrobe and extend the journey of our clothes. Founders Carley and Tanya are building the world they want to see and I’m so excited that they asked me to come along for the ride.

Hi there! My name is Sarah, aka lil_paczki , and I'm one of the community moderators of the slow fashion community on Lucky Sweater. I currently reside in Metro Detroit, living with my husband and 3 dogs—a lab mix, Bichon, and a Norwegian Buhund. If you ever want photos, or want to chit-chat about training, AKC events, or raw feeding, let me know!

My journey into the slow/ethical fashion community started in late 2018, early 2019, when I began joining insta and participating in the community. It was a real eye-opener and I started to think differently about my clothing consumption and who made it. My tops brands are Free Label, Conscious Clothing, Sotela, Only Child, ARQ, Mien Studios, and American Eagle (yes, a "fast fashion" brand).

I am Angela (she/her/hers), one of the community moderators of the slow fashion community on Isthmus. I currently live in Seattle, where I was born and raised, but will soon be moving back to NYC to start the next chapter of my life as a post-doctoral research scientist! I am also a proud mom to my 16-year-old Tuxedo cat, Yin Yang (please let me know if you'd like me to spam you with photos).

I grew up going to yard/garage sales and thrift shopping with my mom, mainly hunting for funky shoes, vintage trench coats, and OOAK jewelry pieces. I didn't officially "start" my slow fashion journey until I discovered Elizabeth Suzann in 2019, and I have since learned about so many other incredible brands! Some of my favorites include Ilana Kohn, James Street Co, Aliya Wanek, and Arq. I am a jumpsuit, outerwear, and beanie lover. Send me all your recommendations!
