"The definitive sourcebook on all aspects of sustainable fashion - not only the environmental issues presented by fast-moving fashion, but also the social impact of the industry. Packed with authoritative facts and inspiring images and ideas, this is an indispensable reference for professionals, students and anyone with an interest in fashion, sustainability and innovation. Sandy Black, one of the world's pioneering authorities on sustainable fashion, has assembled perspectives ranging from designers and technical experts to academics and journalists, environmental and social action campaigners, craft specialists and artists, and representatives of global corporations. Includes illustrated articles and essays by leading writers and thinkers, interviews and statements from designers such as Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood and Hussein Chalayan and case studies on everything from the life-cycle of jeans to smart textiles and fair trade schemes. The book covers every aspect of contemporary fashion: fashion cultures and patterns of consumption from couture house blogosphere; design and innovation; working conditions and corporate transparency; the eco-footprint of the industry; and the role of technology in greening fashion."--Publisher's website.
