Dana Thomas con Fashionopolis

Críticas ""Thoroughgoing and invigorating . . . [Thomas] approaches Fashionopolis as both an intrepid investigative reporter and an aesthete . . . This trenchant look at how clothes are produced today is both an environmentalist cri de coeur and an homage to good design."" --Shelf Awareness ""Journalist Thomas offers a wide-ranging exposé of the fashion industry...[and] shows us sustainable alternatives for the future. Fascinating reading for anyone who wears clothing.""--Library Journal ""An educated update on the current state of fashion, how it got there, and a prognostication on its precarious future . . . Thomas offers informed, fair-minded, passionate, and cautiously optimistic scrutiny of ""fast fashion"". . . Convincing, responsible, and motivational fashion industry reportage."" --Kirkus Reviews ""A great resource for learning about the effects of fast fashion.""--Reader's Digest ""In this informative volume, fashion journalist Thomas convincingly lays out multiple arguments against fast fashion . . . Thoroughly reported and persuasively written, [Thomas's] clarion call for more responsible practices in fashion will speak to both industry professionals and socially conscious consumers."" -- Publishers Weekly ""Fast fashion and its long-term consequences are such crucial subjects that it's hard to believe that no one thought to write this book until now. And how lucky we are that it's Dana Thomas who finally did, bringing her encyclopedic knowledge and expertly-trained eye to bear on the excesses of a system by which companies exploit people and the planet to produce clothes that we barely wear. Investigating the factory floor to runway in search of a better way forward, Thomas makes an unshakeable argument for a different way of getting dressed.""--Lauren Collins, author of When In French ""Dana Thomas's Fashionopolis is blunt: We're all going to drown in a landfill piled high with cheap clothes if we don't stop shopping like maniacs. Thomas's thoughtful reporting explains how we arrived at this environmental crisis and she never lets us forget the human suffering that comes from our seemingly insatiable appetite for frocks. But her reporting also gives us a spark of hope for the future: It just may be possible to have good fashion that doesn't destroy the planet.""--Robin Givhan, author of The Battle of Versailles ""Fashionopolis is an eye-opening account of the true cost of ""fast fashion""--from environmental degradation to inhumane labor practices. Dana Thomas circles the globe to profile innovators who are working to make the garment trade more sustainable and offers a vision of better, rather than, faster fashion. What should I wear?"" Thomas poses this powerful question and I, for one, will never open my closet and look at my choices in quite the same way again.""--Julia Flynn Siler, author of The White Devil's Daughters ""In Fashionopolis, Dana Thomas offers a bracing, urgently important look at the ills fast fashion has wrought--from design theft to corporate corruption, inhumane labor practices to incalculable environmental damage. At the same time, Thomas reports on innovative designers, entrepreneurs, and companies working to counter these trends, making the garment industry fairer and more sustainable. This eye-opening book is a must-read not only for fashion junkies but for everyone who buys and wears clothes, enlightening us as to the garment industry's dark past, its embattled present, and--if we make the thoughtful choices Thomas presents--its bright future.""--Caroline Weber, author of Proust's Duchess Reseña del editor An investigation into the damage wrought by the colossal clothing industry and the grassroots, high-tech, international movement fighting to reform it  What should I wear? It’s one of the fundamental questions we ask ourselves every day. More than ever, we are told it should be something new. Today, the clothing industry churns out 80 billion garments a year and employs every sixth person on Earth. Historically, the apparel trade has exploited labor, the environment, and intellectual property—and in the last three decades, with the simultaneous unfurling of fast fashion, globalization, and the tech revolution, those abuses have multiplied exponentially, primarily out of view. We are in dire need of an entirely new human-scale model. Bestselling journalist Dana Thomas has traveled the globe to discover the visionary designers and companies who are propelling the industry toward that more positive future by reclaiming traditional craft and launching cutting-edge sustainable technologies to produce better fashion.   In Fashionopolis, Thomas sees renewal in a host of developments, including printing 3-D clothes, clean denim processing, smart manufacturing, hyperlocalism, fabric recycling—even lab-grown materials. From small-town makers and Silicon Valley whizzes to such household names as Stella McCartney, Levi’s, and Rent the Runway, Thomas highlights the companies big and small that are leading the crusade.   We all have been casual about our clothes. It's time to get dressed with intention. Fashionopolis is the first comprehensive look at how to start. Ver Descripción del producto
