Global Perspectives on Sustainable Fashion Book Launch

On the 24th May The Stitchery Collective organised and hosted a book launch for Global Perspectives on Sustainable Fashion at Avid Reader bookshop in West End, Brisbane.

Global Perspectives on Sustainable Fashion showcases the global fashion industry’s efforts to reduce the negative impacts associated with fashion production and consumption.¬†Illustrated throughout with infographics, photographs and diagrams of creative works, eighteen essays focus on six regions, examining sustainable fashion in the context of local, cultural and environmental concerns. Also included are 18 regional ‘Spotlight’ sections highlighting the differences and similarities across regions by concentrating on examples of best practice, design innovation and impact on the community.

Stitchery Collective members Anna Hickey and Kiara Bulley were in conversation with Alison Gwilt and Dr Alice Payne, editors of book, along with contributing authors Tiziana Ferrero-Regis and Kath Horton. The panel discussed contemporary approaches to sustainability in fashion, and what can be done by fashion consumers in the face of the global climate crisis.
