Long active in revolutionizing the way fashion is created, British social entrepreneur Minney (Naked Fashion: The New Sustainable Fashion Revolution) promotes a holistic and sustainable approach to the way clothes are manufactured. Her book also goes further, to the need to change the entire cycle of clothing production and use from start to end. Minney explains how the concept of regeneration affects both farming and textiles. The book is divided into three sections: “Nature and Materials”; “People, Livelihoods and Craft”; and “New Economy and Leadership,” Minney includes a plethora of in-depth interviews with industry leaders both big and small from all over the world, as well as researchers and designers. A variety of natural fibers including cotton, wool, orange fiber, and kelp are introduced and explored in detail. Of particular interest are Minney’s explanations of the regenerative cycle, such as a colorful diagram of regenerative wool and the sections on adapting new business models. Striking color pictures are included in all three sections.
VERDICT This book will appeal to a broad array of readers. Fans of ethical fashion, as well as those interested in sustainability, regenerative farming, minimalism, fair trade, and climate change, will all find something to love.
