One of the strongest trends in fashion is the expression of ecological, social and community consciousness, which has recently moved upscale from organic cotton T-shirts to high fashion. There is now a wide range of companies offering welldesigned merchandise, from one-off art, recycled and redesigned clothing, organic and sustainable textiles and garment production, to a range of community and indigenous support cooperatives bridging the gap between traditional craft and high fashion.

This book shows the range of companies making a difference in the area of sustainable design in fashion, exploding the myth that sustainable design is bad design, or at best basic design, by highlighting the range of companies producing desirable and well-designed apparel and accessories with a conscience. It not only demonstrates the range of products available around the globe, but explains the stories behind them and the communities they support, as well as showing how and where they make a difference.

About the Author

Originally from London, UK, Sass Brown is a fulltime professor in the Fashion Design department at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. She has worked with women’s cooperatives in Latin America, most notably COOPA-ROCA in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

'Eco Fashion makes an important contribution to the global movement for ecology-in-design. In particular, Sass Brown calls attention to the many independent designers who are bringing environmentally-friendly fashion to the next level.' Valerie Steele, Director, The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology 'Eco Fashion will be one of the fastest growing areas in the global fashion business this decade. This book provides an excellent overview of this emerging field.' Dr Suran Goonatilake OBE, Founder of Iqons, the world's largest fashion industry networking site 'Eco Fashion is a thoughtful and stimulating publication that comprehensively covers the way companies and designers are responding to the challenge of creating a more environmentally friendly yet design-led fashion industry. What is perhaps unique about this publication is how it provides both an insight into the key drivers behind developing an eco fashion industry, whilst at the same time acting as a guide to the designers and fashion companies who are tackling these issues. This publication never loses sight of the importance of creating fashionable and exciting clothes if we are to have a sustainable fashion industry.' Professor Frances Corner, Head of College London College of Fashion
