Written by the wonderful Clare Press, a new book that explores the history and ethics behind what we wear.
Booktopia describes the book as a witty and persuasive argument for a fashion revolution that will empower you to feel good about your wardrobe again.
Clare examines the entire fashion ecosystem, from sweatshops to haute couture, unearthing the roots of today's buy-and-discard culture. She traces the origins of icons like Chanel, Dior and Hermès; charts the rise and fall of the department store; and follows the thread that led us from Marie Antoinette to Carrie Bradshaw.
