"An incredible accomplishment." Susie Orbach, author of Fat is a Feminist Issue
Moving between Karl Lagerfeld and Karl Marx, Stitched Up delves into the alluring world of fashion, exploring consumerism, class, and garment factories to reveal the real beneficiaries of exploitation.
Stitched Up dissects fashion’s vampiric relationship with the planet and with our bodies to uncover what makes it so damaging. Why does ‘size zero’ exist? Is fashion racist? Why do 'we' consume so much?
In a compelling conclusion Stitched Up explores the use of clothing to resist. Can you shock an industry that loves to shock? Is ‘green fashion’ an alternative? What would a real fashion revolution look like?
