Description

This important book explores animal exploitation in the fashion industry. Drawing on a fascinating array of historical fashion images, the author argues that there is a hidden history of global impact on animals and the environment by the fashion world, from extinction to large-scale industrial confinement and killing.

The book helps to understand why we are so drawn to animal materials in fashion, and what can be done to bring about change.

This is a thoroughly researched and beautifully illustrated study that also celebrates emerging innovations that could replace the use of animals altogether in our clothing.
