Through a collection of essays, Sustainable Fashion: Why Now? examines the issues of sustainability that designers, product developers, and consumers confront as they go about creating, wearing, and recycling clothing and fashion. It also considers what sustainability means alongside fashion two seemingly contradictory concepts because fashion is all about change, and sustainability is all about preservation. Through a lively range of perspectives, the contributors discuss new ideas on how to produce fashion with a sense of ethics, organic, or renewable resources, and socially responsible manufacturing techniques.
