Creating sustainable fashion has never been more important. Circular Fashion provides an accessible, practical, and holistic approach to this key topic for anyone studying fashion. This introductory text to sustainability in fashion includes best practice case studies and profiles of key companies such as Patagonia, Veja, Christopher Raeburn, and Stella McCartney. It begins with an overview of the fashion business, tackling the issues of the linear production model of make, use, dispose, before introducing the idea of the circular supply chain. Circular Fashion is the must-have book for fashion students, creatives and anyone passionate about sustainability and fashion.

Circular Fashion is an eminently readable analysis of the social and environmental impact of every aspect of the textile and clothing industry [...] There is a stunning depth of research in Circular Fashion and some fun discoveries along the way as well. Because of this book I started to follow innovative designers [....] I really enjoyed the section that lists all of the conventional materials used for clothing production and unpacks their pros and cons, as well as the fascinating discussion of innovative materials (like those made from potato peels, mushrooms, oranges, and pineapples), and forward-looking, sustainable processes like green chemistry and digital finishing.
