American journalist Dana Thomas may shock you and make you reconsider how you choose your clothes. She reports that the exponential growth of the fashion business in the last three decades has devastating long-term environmental implications. Thomas’s in-depth descriptions of new technology, materials and processes also provide a glimpse of the world to come. This book is a must for anyone associated with the fashion industry, but is also a provocative examination of how the industry is struggling to transform itself even as current practices make the status quo unsustainable. You may never look at a pair of jeans the same way again.
