Packed with authoritative facts and features, as well as inspiring images and ideas, The Sustainable Fashion Handbook is dramatically more in-depth and comprehensive than any previous publication on the subject. Five thematic chapters cover every aspect of contemporary fashion: fashion cultures from high street to blogosphere to couture; design and innovation, the industry’s lifeblood; the fashion business, employer of up to 40 million people worldwide; the system’s eco-footprint; and outlooks for the future and the role of technology in greening fashion. Resolutely positive in outlook, this is the ideal reference for fashion students and design professionals, but accessible and appealing to anyone with an interest in fashion, sustainability or design innovation.
