About This Book

Will eco-friendly fashion dress the future? Can fashion be sustainable? Sustainability is a challenge that cannot be ignored today. Sustainable fashion reassesses the material and manufacturing components without renouncing the aesthetic and symbolic. The Beautiful and the Good highlights—with the aid of case histories—how we are going through a profound and necessary change of paradigm in the culture of consumption.
