Description:

Through a collection of specially commissioned essays, Sustainable Fashion: Why Now? examines the issues of sustainability that designers, product developers, and consumers confront as they go about their business of creating, wearing, and recycling clothing and fashion. In a broader sense, the book considers what "sustainability" means alongside "fashion"--two seemingly contradictory concepts as fashion is all about change and sustainability, is all about preservation. Through a lively range of perspectives, the authors engage their readers in a dialogue on sustainable fashion that generates new ideas on how to produce fashion with a sense of ethics, organic or renewable resources, and socially responsible manufacturing techniques. The format of the book is an anthology, divided into three sections, each focused on an in-depth exploration of sustainable opportunity: "Connecting with Consumers on Issues Relating to Sustainable Practices," "Production and Economic Processes in the Global Economy," and "The Environment, the Planet, and the Materials Used in Fashion Making." This structure provides an interconnected and circular way to explore the creation and practice of sustainable fashion that is not possible through old, linear models of understanding the fashion industry.
