This ambitious book is set to become the definitive reference on all aspects of eco-fashion. Packed with authoritative features and facts, and inspiring images and ideas, it is dramatically more in-depth and comprehensive than any previous single publication on the subject. The book is divided into five thematic chapters covering every aspect of contemporary fashion from fashion cultures (from high street to blogosphere to couture), to the eco-footprint of the current resource-hungry and wasteful system, to the fashion business, employer of up to 40 million people worldwide. Each chapter presents an array of illustrated articles including essays by leading writers and thinkers, statements from designers such as Stella McCartney, EDUN founder Ali Hewson, Vivienne Westwood, Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, interviews with such designers as Katharine Hamnett, Hussein Chalayan, Dries van Noten, Lorrie Vogel (Nike) as well as presenting future scenarios which set out how things could be if we do - or don't - succeed in enacting radical change. Finally a resources section provides comprehensive listings of leading organizations involved in campaigning, advising, certifying, footprinting and promoting sustainability worldwide. The Sustainable Fashion Handbook will take its place as the Bible of the subject.
