Safia Minney argues that the future of bricks & mortar retail is in the best in Fair Trade, sustainable and organic products, together with vintage, second hand and local produce. Restorative economics, the well-being of our planet, our bodies and minds can be inspired by this growing sector and one that is shaping big business.

This book curates pioneering people and projects that will inspire you to be part of the change. With full colour photography and illustration throughout Slow Fashion profiles people and bringing the alternatives to the mainstream: designers, labels and eco-concept stores across the world; fair trade producers; campaigns that are designing a fashion economy and the fibres and fabrics which are making a difference.
