Product description

Review

'Alison Gwilt and Timo Rissanen [are] zero-waste pioneers.' New York Times 'An authoritative new book ... [that] provides an eloquent description of the scale of the problem, both in terms of the environmental impact of the fashion industry and the myriad ways in which the current industry is stacked against sustainable practice.' DAMn Magazine 'This book is an invaluable reference for anyone serious about designing fashion and textiles for sustainability. From designers empowered through knowledge and motivated by applying traditional skills in new ways, to the everyday practical wisdoms of the wearers' 'craft of use', Shaping Sustainable Fashion outlines how sustainability can help shape cultural attitudes and suggest new behaviours in everyone. This book helps us envision not only sustainable products, but also a sustainable culture and society.' Lynda Grose, Fashion Designer, Assistant professor, Fashion and Sustainability at California College of the Arts 'Designers will play a critical role in reducing the fashion industry's negative impacts on the environment. Shaping Sustainable Fashion illustrates four meaningful and memorable areas to create sustainable solutions across a garment's lifecycle-Source, Make, Use, and Last.' Marsha Dickson, Professor of Fashion and Apparel Studies, University of Delaware 'Through exploratory essays and case studies, this book brings a realistic and insightful perspective on many urgent concerns about the relationships of fashion, textiles and sustainability. Rissanen and Gwilt combine their professional and research findings astutely to present original and practical solutions to some of the major challenges facing fashion practices - present and future.' Hazel Clark, PhD, Dean, School of Art and Design History and Theory, Parsons the New School for Design, New York
