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)
