KTO CONSCIOUS

£16.99

Beautifully illustrated with specially commissioned designs, Stitched Up delves into the alluring world of fashion to reveal what is behind the clothes we wear. Moving between Karl Lagerfeld and Karl Marx, the book explores consumerism, class and advertising to reveal the interests which benefit from exploitation. Tansy E. Hoskins dissects fashion’s vampiric relationship with the planet and with our bodies to uncover what makes it so damaging. Why does ‘size zero’ exist and what is the reality of working life for models? In a critique of the portrayal of race in fashion, the book also examines the global balance of power in the industry. 

Tansy E. Hoskins is a writer and activist, campaigning previously for Stop the War Coalition and the CND, she is now focused on exposing the misogyny, exploitation and wastefulness obscured by the glamour and allure of the fashion industry.
