Slave to Fashion by Safia Minney

Slave to Fashion raises awareness of modern slavery in the fashion industry and shows how it can be eradicated by business and consumers.

"Safia is a leader in the field of ethical fashion and works with the utmost integrity to develop supply chain, sustainable products, and retail." - Livia Firth, Creative Director of Eco Age and ethical fashion ambassador.

"The strength of Safia’s book is not just in starting a discussion but in the presentation of a very practical set of solutions that when taken up even by just one person, has the power to turn into a revolution." - Polly Michelle Cunanan, Eco Warrior Princess.

Slave to Fashion is made up of interviews and micro-documentaries with the men, women and children caught in slavery, making the clothes sold on our high streets, in Europe and the developing world.

It will also profile best practice of brands and designers within the fashion industry to prove that slave-free fashion is achievable and fashion can be used to empower workers - whilst creating beautiful, competitive and accessible fashion.

From 2015, the Modern Slavery Act requires medium to large-sized companies to report on what they are doing to eradicate slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains. If not, they need to declare it.

Slave to Fashion brings in the facts, stories and actions we must take to eradicate modern slavery.

Safia Minney is a pioneer in ethical business. She is the founder of Fair Trade and sustainable fashion label, People Tree, and now brings her expertise and experience to help businesses embrace sustainability and transparency in their operations and branding. She is author of several critically-acclaimed books including Naked Fashion and Slow Fashion (both in New Internationalist).

"It is shocking how little people know about how their clothes are made and the inhumanity of the fashion industry." - Tansy Hoskins, Public Reading Rooms.

"Crucially, for those consumers like myself, who are complicit in the modern slavery system, the book provides us with the tools and resources to enable us to effect change." - Louise Bateman, The Planet Mark.
