Event description

Description

From sizeism to animal rights, in her new book author Sue Thomas provides a comprehensive overview of the ethical issues in the fashion industry.

Looking at collection design concept to upcycling and closed loop production, author Sue Thomas goes beyond the usual contentious issues of environmental impact and human rights taking the reader deeper to the endemic issues including sizeism, ageism, animal rights, lack of diversity in models and media. Fashion Ethics lays out the significant ethical issues within the fashion supply chain by mapping the lifecycle of a garment and exploring key topics such as deep ecology, cultural copyright speciesism, the role of the customer, and technology in future ethics.
