'Dress [with] Sense' is the perfect guide for fashion lovers of all ages keen to embrace a more ethical and environment-friendly approach to their wardrobes that is also economical, stylish and practical.
This timely book is organized into four chapters – ‘Buy’, ‘Wear’, ‘Care’ and ‘Dispose’ – each containing a short introduction with essential information followed by practical tips and illustrated case studies to help you make the first step towards a more sustainable wardrobe. It concludes with a rich reference section recommending not only the best ethical fashion labels and collections but also eco-friendly fabrics, standards and certifications, cleaning methods, renting, swapping and recycling initiatives, and much more.
Here is finally the ideal ‘green’ and fashion-focused complement to the decluttering craze started by Marie Kondo’s best-selling 'The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying'.
