Fashionopolis: The Price of Fast Fashion - and the Future of Clothes

Dana Thomas's Fashionopolis: The Price of Fast Fashion - and the Future of Clothes

'A gripping blockbuster ... Thomas researches meticulously and writes with simmering even-handed anger' TELEGRAPH. Fashionopolis is the definitive book on the cost of fast fashion, and a blueprint for how we get to a more sustainable future. ***************** Fashion has blighted our planet. Today, one out of six people on earth work in fashion, churning out 100 billion garments a year. Yet 98 percent of them do not earn a living wage, and 2.1 billion tonnes of clothing is thrown away annually. The clothing industry's exploitation of fellow humans and the Environment has reached epic levels. What should we do? Bestselling author and veteran journalist Dana Thomas has travelled the globe to find the answers. In Fashionopolis, she details the damage wrought by fashion's behemoths, and celebrates the visionaries - including activists, artisans, designers, and tech entrepreneurs - fighting for change. We all have been casual about our clothes. It's time to get dressed with intention. Fashionopolis is the first comprehensive look at how to start. ***************** Reviews: 'Fascinating ... Powerful ... Thomas has succeeded in calling attention to the major problems of the fashion industry' New York Times. 'Thomas takes a story most of us think we know, but tells it better and in compelling, readable detail' The Times. 'Engaging and thorough ... Fashionopolis has implications beyond cloth and thread' Financial Times. 'Thomas is a conscientious reporter - as evidenced in her research, which is studded with statistics' Times Literary Supplement. 'Dana Thomas' Fashionopolis exposes fashion's toxic relationship with the Environment in its pursuit of "unbridled capitalism." If anything can persuade you to change your habits, this will' Country & Town House.
