If your over-flowing wardrobe is making you feel guilty, read this book (even if it’s not making you feel guilty, you should read this book). Aussie fashion writer Clare Press explores the real cost of our modern-day addiction to cheap clothing and I have to tell you, it’s pretty morbid. But the solution to the problem lies with us, as shoppers, and this book is the perfect way to kick-start some smarter (and kinder) shopping habits. The tone of this book is really great as well and will immediately draw you in. Read it.

Syndetics book coverWardrobe crisis : how we went from Sunday best to fast fashion / Clare Press.
“”Who makes your clothes? This used to be an easy question to answer: it was the seamstress next door, or the tailor on the high street or you made them yourself. Today we rarely know the origins of the clothes hanging in our closets. The local shoemaker, dressmaker and milliner are long gone, replaced by a globalised fashion industry worth $1.5 trillion a year. In Wardrobe Crisis , fashion journalist Clare Press explores the history and ethics behind what we wear. Putting her insider status to good use, Press examines the entire fashion ecosystem, from sweatshops to haute couture, unearthing the roots of today’s buy-and-discard culture. She traces the origins of icons like Chanel, Dior and Hermes; charts the rise and fall of the department store; and follows the thread that led us from Marie Antoinette to Carrie Bradshaw. Wardrobe Crisis is a witty and persuasive argument for a fashion revolution that will empower you to feel good about your wardrobe again.”” (Syndetics summary)
