The Edmonton-based international portrait, wedding and commercial photographer, Nicole Ashley, recently joined us in the studio (along with our good friend, Anton) for our latest in the Local Portraits series. With some prosecco in hand and too many laughs to count, we were so excited to be able to chat fashion, hair, and photography with the talented photographer. Scroll down to read why Nicole believes in the slow fashion movement and how she plans to #WearTheChange.

NC: The slow fashion movement is a unified representation of all the "eco", "green", "ethical", and "sustainable" fashion movements which intend to slow down the rate of fashion consumption (think quality over quantity). This movement rejects the mainstream practices of fast fashion while supporting artisans and smaller businesses, fair trade and locally-made clothing. How do you contribute (or plan to contribute) to the slow fashion movement?
