Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through a collection of essays, Sustainable Fashion: Why Now? examines the issues of sustainability that designers, product developers, and consumers confront as they create, wear, and recycle clothing and fashion. Through a lively range of perspectives, the contributors discuss new ideas for producing fashion with organic or renewable resources using socially responsible manufacturing techniques. Divided into three sections, this book provides an interconnected way to explore sustainable fashion through people, processes, and the environment.
