By Susan E. Ospital on January 3, 2009
Format: Paperback
Various perspectives, ideas and practices of professionals in the fashion field address the importance of sustainability as it pertains to the fashion industry through its three main divisions found within the text. The traditional concept of fashion is challenged to a new height where present development, manufacturing, shipping and merchandising of textiles and products is being openly questioned and answered with a variety of possibilities. Here fashion is re-envisioned through the investigation of new or different resources that can be easily renewed; through design, sewing techniques and recycling, eliminating waste in a garments production to its life's end and rebirth into a new creation. Our world's present environmental situation can no longer be ignored, making the time for sustainable awareness and action regarding fashion around the globe everyone's business.Practicing environmental stewardship in fashion from beginning to beginning allows each person/consumer to think outside the box, to be empowered to make a difference to help the earth, sustain ourselves and still allow fashion to thrive through a new definition.

I am very pleased with this book and am using it in my graduate research on sustainable fashion. It is an excellent source of information and provides solid, scholarly viewpoints on sustainability covering a variety of topics such as zero-waste and slow design, fibers, consumerism, economic impacts, regulations, and technology to name a few. Whether you are just discovering sustainable fashion or have already been researching this subject, this is a "must-have" resource for your library!
