Description:

As issues surrounding sustainability in the fashion industry continue to evolve, the conversation in this collection of essays from leading fashion scholars, thinkers and practitioners has been updated with current concepts and industry practices. This revised edition examines the challenges that designers, product developers, and consumers confront as they create, wear, and recycle clothing and fashion. Editors Hethorn and Ulasewicz frame the discussion into three sections--people, processes, and the environment--each comprised of an introduction, five essays and Best Practices case studies that ground concepts in real-world examples. The introductions to each section have been completely revamped to provide readers with a foundation for the concepts and principles of sustainability covered in detail in the chapter essays. Contributors include experts such as Lucy Dunne writing about how technology is helping create a sustainable fashionable future and Timo Rissanen on his innovative methods for creating fashion with zero fabric waste. An expanded discussion of corporate social responsibility throughout the text and in two new chapters emphasizes the conditions of garment workers and human sustainability.New to this edition:- New sidebars focusing on an expansion of Real World Applications for the concepts presented in each chapter-Best Practices sections will feature new examples of contemporary industry practices- Discussion questions at the end of each chapter- Incorporates a more global perspective of sustainable practices with two new chapters by international authors- New chapter on social justice and corporate social responsibility (CSR)
