Publisher's description: Is green the new black? This beautifully illustrated book pays tribute to contemporary designers whose creations are at once fashion forward as well as sustainable, responsible, and humanely produced. Sustainability is in fashion right now and designers are taking note. With an ever-growing number of environmentally conscious consumers at hand, the fashion industry is responding to demands for products that are both beautiful and resource efficient. This book showcases the work of today's designers who are doing just that. It features up-and-coming designers and established brands from all over the world, chosen for their ability to manufacture wearable, highly covetable clothing while also contributing to better working conditions, protecting the environment, and applying innovative design techniques or materials. Included in this book are companies that are rediscovering traditional handicrafts, upcycling designers who reuse textile waste, and consumer-oriented approaches that make high fashion a little more cost-effective.
