Description


As our climate, ecological and social crises converge, urgent action is needed to maximize our chances of survival. A new commercial approach is possible but it requires a systemic shift, with companies learning to operate as part of a wider 'ecosystem', allowing fashion to restore what it has taken.

Regenerative Fashion presents a roadmap for new ways of doing fashion. To keep our planet safe, we must cut production and end our dependency on fossil fuels. We must also create dignified livelihoods for the millions of people working in the industry. By using natural resources, paying factory workers and farmers a living wage and scaling up craft production, we can not only rebuild soils, ecosystems and biodiversity, but also support decarbonization, regenerate communities and ensure a just transition for all.

Part guide and part manifesto, this book shares stories of our interconnectedness with the natural world and each other, divided into sections on Nature & Materials; People, Livelihoods & Crafts; and New Economy & Leadership. Fully illustrated throughout, it features interviews from best-practice designers and businesses around the world, as well as thought pieces from leading campaigners within the industry.

Praise For…


"Regenerative Fashion is a powerful read because it reminds us of the practices — largely established by Indigenous cultures — that have existed for a long time and support harmony between us and our ecosystems, and that it's vital to return to them and step away from the hyper-capitalist, consumption-driven path we've been on." –Fashionista

"Teens considering careers in the fashion industry will find inspiration in the stories of these innovative, socially responsible industry leaders." –Booklist
