Editorial Reviews

Review

'Eco Fashion makes an important contribution to the global movement for ecology-in-design. In particular, Sass Brown calls attention to the many independent designers who are bringing environmentally-friendly fashion to the next level.' Valerie Steele, Director, The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology 'Eco Fashion will be one of the fastest growing areas in the global fashion business this decade. This book provides an excellent overview of this emerging field.' Dr Suran Goonatilake OBE, Founder of Iqons, the world's largest fashion industry networking site 'Eco Fashion is a thoughtful and stimulating publication that comprehensively covers the way companies and designers are responding to the challenge of creating a more environmentally friendly yet design-led fashion industry. What is perhaps unique about this publication is how it provides both an insight into the key drivers behind developing an eco fashion industry, whilst at the same time acting as a guide to the designers and fashion companies who are tackling these issues. This publication never loses sight of the importance of creating fashionable and exciting clothes if we are to have a sustainable fashion industry.' Professor Frances Corner, Head of College London College of Fashion

Pretty much includes anyone who made an organic t-shirt - not selective or in-depth at all. Photos aren't even worth it.

... but not as much substance as I was hoping. The photos are beautiful, and the book is nicely designed. It's the copy I've found a bit lacking.

Format: Paperback
Author Sass Brown offers a new eco fashion design paradigm. Her thesis contends that eco or sustainable design has moved beyond the "granola" to handcrafted clothing using traditional methods that are both beautiful and innovative. And in celebrating good design, she recognizes that fashion can indeed be sustainable as well, from design to wear.

Eco Fashion and her incredibly resourceful companion website, [...] is really the bible for eco fashion. Both are easy to read, yet insightful, and the site provides an ongoing compendium of "designer" eco fashion. The book, featuring beautiful photography, is just as at home on a coffee table as it is in the classroom.

Love the gorgeous cover, and I think I finally found the artist/seamstress:

"Alabama Chanin, founded by Natalie Chanin, is just one example of the fine work featured in Eco Fashion. "

Interview with Sass Brown of Eco Fashion

Sass Brown, professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology In New York, recently wrote Eco Fashion, a book celebrating sustainability in fashion and "slow design." Driven by her determination to prove that for-profit businesses can make a difference in the ecology of the planet, she documents how eco-fashion has achieved a sophistication well beyond organic cotton T-shirts.

Alabama Chanin, founded by Natalie Chanin, is just one example of the fine work featured in Eco Fashion. Chanin employs talented artisans from in and around Florence, Alabama, to make gorgeous clothing, like the outfit below, with incredible hand sewn details."
