Visit our online exhibition to see Fast x Slow Fashion in its digital home!

Step into our fashion house at Leeds City Museum and discover how our relationship with shopping has changed in Fast x Slow Fashion.

Spanning 300 years, this exhibition explores how shopping in Leeds has transformed in both its scale and the way it’s consumed. Find out how the ‘slow’ fashion of the past became ‘fast’ in a world of mass production, changing trends and lower prices.

We take a look at how handmade, recycled and pre-loved fashion has made a resurgence in an age of Climate Change Action. And we consider what our history of textile production and trade in Leeds can tell us about the future of shopping.

A series of talks, workshops and events run throughout the exhibition and can be found in our what’s on listings.

We will also be hosting a conference on 13 March at Leeds City Museum, Fast x Slow Fashion: Experiences of Fashionable Consumption, 1720-2020.
