The growing need for a more sustainable fashion industry, in combination with technological developments in textiles and production, is causing radical alterations in contemporary fashion. Although change is just beginning, traditional processes and materials are already under enormous pressure. This book tackles relevant themes in the sustainability dialogue today. What possibilities lie within new technologies, and how do public initiatives like reuse and recycling impact progress? Finally, how do new values and ways of producing fashion result in better business models? Includes work by fashion designers Iris van Herpen, Issey Miyake, Holly McQuillan and many others.
