New book on ethical style released

A coffee table book on sustainable fashion has been released this month – and we’ve got a preview to show you.

Written by Sandy Black, a Professor at the London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainable Fashion, The Sustainable Fashion Handbook focuses on how fashion has experienced an ethical overhaul, with brands from every level of the industry, from high end designers to the high street bearing responsibility for how their clothes are made, and what they’re made of.

Featuring interviews with leading designers, from Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood to Hussein Chalayan and Dries Van Noten, intelligent essays on subjects such as 'How sustainable fashion can survive in an age of celebrity culture' and insight into how brands make their clothes ethically, the book is a fascinating glimpse into how the industry is trying to change for the better, all accompanied with beautiful images.

Available from Thames & Hudson now for £35.00, take a sneak preview of the book in the gallery below:
