This is a must read for anyone that is into fashion or wants to be in the fashion industry. I'm a fashion design and merhandising major and through the program at my school I've been exposed to a world that I would have never known about with just being a regular consumer. For myself reading this book and knowing that there are so many people fighting for one amazing cause to rebuild a sense of humanity around the world is astonishing to me. Knowing that corporations honestly condone the fact th ...more

This books reads like a glossy catalogue. I thought it would be more of a memoir, but it's just one page entries of interviews with people who have collaborated with people tree and lots of color photos of their clothing. I wish the book was more comprehensive and talked about fair trade fashion in general, not just what people tree is doing.

Fast Fashion is harmful to people and the planet. We know this and yet consumers seem to have few choices. This book reminds us of why we need to look for ethical fashion, how to be involved in the industry and where to look. It highlights the many people already involved in ethical fashion with lots of thought provoking stories from people in the fashion industry.

I really liked the information supplied by Minney in this book. I feel that she makes a serious effort to help the reader understand the need for social responsibility and sustainability in the fashion industry. The question and answer sessions with professionals in the industry paint a more realistic picture of the changes that are occuring and those yet to come.

This is such a beautiful book, full of incredible photographs, wonderful interviews and so much more! Educational (for basics though... I knew everything already, but I'm glad we bought it. ) for everyone interested in fashion.
