Building a Conscious Wardrobe
Fashion isn't all fun and games; there is a true cost to the clothes that we wear. The fashion industry is one of the most polluting in the world and many of the garment workers who produce the clothes we wear are not paid a living wage and work in horrible conditions.
We want to change the way people think about their clothes through our new publication 'Building a Conscious Wardrobe - And Other fun Things.' This beautiful publication is a cross between a book and a magazine and includes simple how-to tips for shopping, styling, caring and disposing of clothing and textiles in a more conscious way, profiles on ethical and sustainable designers, short essays, inspiring visual editorials and personal stories.
Written, edited and compiled by Emma Batchelor.
Illustrated by Lexi Keelan.
