Slow Fashions: Making Sense of Sustainable Fashion

König, Anna (2013) Slow Fashions: Making Sense of Sustainable Fashion. I.B.Tauris, London. ISBN 9781848853423

Type of Research: Book
Creators: König, Anna
Description:

Slow Fashions reframes debates about fashion and sustainability by exploring the production, consumption and representation of fashion against a backdrop of environmental and ethical concerns, underlining the need for a multi-dimensional approach to understanding and resolving the problem of sustainable consumption. It critiques troublesome concepts such as ‘ecofashion’ and ‘ethical fashion’, whilst recognizing the prominent role that fashion can play in contemporary life. Thus it looks at ways of reconciling a growing global demand for fashion with the realities of environmental and economic sustainability, exploring in the process not only the much-neglected area of fashion production, but also the interplay between the representation of fashion and its consumption.
