Publisher's description: Fashion Ethics is the first book to provide a comprehensive overview of the ethical issues in the fashion industry: from collection design concept to upcycling and closed loop production. This book answers an urgent need for a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental ethics of the fashion industry. 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. The book 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. It also features current international industry information and industry relevant case studies from brands, media and mobile technology and NGOs including Oxfam (UK), Redress (Hong Kong), Nimany, Labor Link (US), People Tree (UK) and Peppermint (Australia). Fashion Ethics provides much needed information for fashion students and industry professionals.
