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.
Fast x Slow Fashion is located on the third floor of the museum.
