This is my first book on the topic of fashion's influence on the environment and society. I was looking for a book on that topic in the first place because I knew a bit about fashion production but wanted to know the details. This book is very thorough and goes over every step in fashion and fabric production, revealing a lot of facts that average consumer never thinks about. Definitely recommended for people who would like to make more conscious decisions when shopping.

Along with Elizabeth L. Cline's Overdressed, To Die For has changed the way I will consume fashion for the rest of my life. A must read for any fashionista.

This book has completely transformed the way I look at clothes. I used to think only of whether I myself could afford an item of clothing; now I think of the quality, the amount of wear I get out of it, and whether I really need it. This should be known to everybody!

This book changed me. My views, perceptions and understanding of the real cost of what I wear.
I think it should be made part of school curriculum for every child in the world.
