Could this book be the unravelling of our fashion industry?

16 Aug

To Die For: Is Fashion Wearing Out the World by Lucy SiegleI am currently just over halfway through Lucy Siegle’s book To Die For: Is Fashion Wearing Out the World? and already I feel the need to tell everyone about it. Written in easily managed bite-sized-chunks, the book is a thorough and shocking dissection of our fashion industry. Having thought I was pretty much up to speed on its pitfalls To Die For is proving that there’s far more to the business of being ‘on-trend’ than I initially thought. Siegle presents evidence of distressing unethical practices and serious environmental damage that our Western fast-fashion culture has (not always unwittingly) encouraged. Although this book isn’t a particularly light read, it is well written, accessible and gripping at times. It swings wide the glittering doors of one of the West’s biggest commercial machines that most do not usually see behind, and will almost certainly make you think twice about picking up a so-called ‘bargain’ next time you’re on the high-street.
