Avid Reader Bookshop and Cafe says
Join Clare Press in-conversation with Alison Kubler discussing 'Wardrobe Crisis: How We Went From Sunday Best to Fast Fashion' (Black Inc.).

This event is 6.00pm for a 6.30pm start.

Who makes your clothes? This used to be an easy question to answer: it was the seamstress next door, or the tailor on the high street - or you made them yourself. Today we rarely know the origins of the clothes hanging in our closets. The local shoemaker, dressmaker and milliner are long gone, replaced by a globalised fashion industry worth $1.5 trillion a year.

In 'Wardrobe Crisis', fashion journalist Clare Press explores the history and ethics behind what we wear. Putting her insider status to good use, Press examines the entire fashion ecosystem, from sweatshops to haute couture, unearthing the roots of today's buy-and-discard culture.
