Conversation with Dana Thomas on “Fashionopolis: The High Price of Fast Fashion and the Future of Clothes.

Revolution Books in Harlem will host an online reading and conversation with author Dana Thomas on her new book Fashionopolis: The High Price of Fast Fashion and the Future of Clothes. She will be speaking to us from Paris.

Today, the clothing industry employs 1 in 6 people on the planet. Historically, it has exploited labor and the environment — and in the last three decades, its abuses have multiplied exponentially, primarily out of view. Dana Thomas gives us an eye-opening account and profiles designers trying to create eco-conscious technologies.

“Thomas, a Paris-based fashion journalist, takes a story most of us think we know, but tells it better and in compelling, readable detail.”
–The Times (UK)

Dana Thomas is a regular contributor to the New York Times Style section. For 15 years she served as a cultural and fashion correspondent for Newsweek.
