Jessica Robertson, A Bit Slow

Jessica Robertson creates fashion and textiles with her Sydney based label: Slow Palette by Jessica Robertson. Her goal is to create systemic change in current production, consumption, and disposability rates in fashion and food industries. She believes the principles of slow±using local materials, being transparent, and co-producing—provides for a sustainable and ethical alternative. Slow Palette was recently one of the winning designers selected for The Spirit of the Black Dress awards at L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, showcased as a finalist at The Centre For Sustainable Fashion's Fashioning the Future Awards in London and received "Best in Show" at the Society of Responsible Design’s annual graduate exhibition. Jessica is co-founder of slow-design hub A Bit Slow, co-producer of seasonal artisan food preserves The Source, and a core member of the Youth Food Movement, co-piloting events. Through all these projects, Jessica is able to promote the practice of slow and provide sustainable food, fashion, and textile alternatives.
