slow fashion


If you want to supplement your discussion about the fashion industry, you might be interested in our slow fashion worksheet. It includes a bunch of adjectives to talk about the fashion industry (fair, transparent, ecological, long-lasting, etc.) and a lot of speaking opportunities for your students. They will need to rack their brains to discuss the concept of slow fashion and how to be a part of it!

B2 / Upper Intermediate30 minStandard LessonPrintable & Digital$6 Plan


First, students need to match adjectives to create the pairs of synonyms. To practise them in speaking, in the next task they look at the adjectives that describe the term slow fashion. They have to think how these adjectives might define it. There is no right or wrong answers here, the aim is just to make students speak and express their ideas. After that, they can compare their answers to a short text about slow fashion.


The worksheet finishes with a few questions about slow fashion movement. In the Teacher’s worksheet, there is also the Slow Clothing Manifesto. You can show it to your students after the discussion point as it gives a few ways of being more conscious about fashion. You can also see it here.
