I have been dipping in and out of "SUSTAINABLE FASHION &TEXTILES" by Kate Fletcher (earthscan, London, 2008) and it's proved informative and inspirational to me -with sustainability topics specifically in the fashion sector with expamples from the industry. I recommend it!

Im constantly recommended to read this book by Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard
Let My People Go Surfing
has anyone here yet read it?

Comment by jacqueline on March 10, 2010 at 16:01
THANKS guys for your comments
i do think rosie and the diy-couture team have a great idea too as it encourages cooperation and it all adds to the retuning of mindsets which i believe is the importance of thinking ethical within fashion design and production
Comment by mario lewis on March 10, 2010 at 15:16
I am reading it right now, its very forward thinking and opens up radically new ways for your imagination to opperate.

You might also be interested in the range of books (small but growing!) by DIYcouture, which use pictures to help you make your own clothes from scratch. The books aim to help people make garments that are precious and loved, rather than purchase practically disposable garments that get thrwon away with the passing of each season. Enjoy : ) www.diy-couture.co.uk
