Egmont will publish Fashion Conscious by academic and journalist Sarah Klymkiw and illustrator Kim Hankisnon in August next year ahead of London Fashion Week 2020.
The book is being described as “an empowering call-to-arms for the Greta Thunberg generation, offering an in-depth look at the fashion industry and a range of ways that young people can become campaigners for change,” and will be printed using vegetable ink with a plastic-free cover.
Klymkiw told The Bookseller: “Never has it been so important to consider the impact that our clothing choices have on our planet. After reading this book, I want young people to shake up the fashion world – to demand answers and to take action both as conscious consumers and active citizens. We have the power to collectively change the world with a change of clothes.”
The Youtube video is from at talk given by Klymkiw last year.
