Book Description

Naked Fashion invites you to join the movement of consumers, entrepreneurs, and creative professionals who are using their purchasing power, talents, and experience to make fashion more sustainable.

Anyone with an active interest in fashion and where our clothes come from or looking for a career in fashion and the media will find inspiration and advice on how to make a difference.

Designers and creatives from all over the world—including photographers, models, illustrators, actors, and journalists—talk about what they are doing differently to make fashion more sustainable:

  • Emma Watson explains why fair trade fashion is so important to her.
  • Summer Rayne Oakes describes how she took on the model agencies.
  • Vivienne Westwood talks high-fashion without the high stakes for the planet.

Inside you will find fair trade and environment, styling and modeling, up-cycling and "slow" fashion, how we can change the high street, an ethical brand directory, and stunning visuals throughout.

Safia Minney is founder and CEO of fair trade and sustainable fashion label People Tree. She has turned a lifelong interest in environment, trade, and social justice issues into an award-winning social business. Minney is widely regarded as a leader in the fair trade movement and has been awarded Outstanding Social Entrepreneur by the World Economic Forum and an MBE for her work in fair trade and the fashion industry.

Product Description

Review

'Every page turns the conventional view of the fashion landscape upside down, gives it a good shake and (charmingly) disposes the offending idea in the nearest trash can. Instead we are offered just about the most inspiring alternative models imaginable. And this is genuinely liberating.' From the foreword by Lucy Siegle and Livia Firth 'Insightful, inspiring... a book I will be recommending to all students of fashion.' - Caryn Franklin, style guru, presenter, writer and campaigner. 'Showing fashion at its worst while providing upbeat solutions is a tough call but Safia Minney has achieved it with Naked Fashion.' - The Ecologist. 'If sustainable goods are your thing, this is an enticing guide to the growing fair-trade fashion movement.' - Christina Binkley, Wall St Journal.

By jude
Format:Paperback
This book gives a fascinating insight into the functioning and malfunctioning of the fashion industry and has suggestions for ways of making it more ethical and satisfying for many of those involved, from producers to consumers. The use of short interviews with a wide variety of people from all parts of the fashion chain and the many beautiful images throughout make it a pleasure to dip into. What the book has to say is worth thinking about for those in the fashion industry and the man/woman in the street who wears the clothes. This book is very visually pleasing while stimulating thought on an important matter - a campaigning coffee-table book!

5.0 out of 5 stars What an eye opener 5 Dec. 2011
By Joanna
Format:Paperback
A great insight into the lives of the people who design and produce fair trade clothes. I really do not want to wear anything that has been made at the expensive of people working in sweat shops, living in slumps and putting children into child labour. Thank you Safia for this fantastic book- a highly informative and far reaching read.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is really good for my studies due to the sustainability section in there and recycyled fashion. It was great value for money as it would of been more exspensive if i bought it from a book store.
Came in plenty of time and good service. Would recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars By People Tree, for People Tree 1 Oct. 2012
By Rebekah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book had plenty of beautiful photographs, and a lot of interesting information about sweatshop labor and sustainable fashion... but I came away feeling like I'd just read one LONG ad for the People Tree company. I think every interview was with a People Tree collaborator, model, makeup artist, etc.. The book did reference some other sustainable companies and tried to deliver an important message, but I still felt a bit tricked.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Safia Minney and the people she highlights are doing wonderful work and more should be done. The book is written as short anecdotal snippets and is a quick read. It is a good intro into this field. I would have liked more detail.
