To Die For by Lucy Siegle

 

To Die For: Is Fashion Wearing Out the World, by Lucy Siegle, is an insightful read into the worrying impact fast fashion has on the environment and the peoples’ lives who make your clothes. This book explores the use of different material fibers (both natural and synthetic), as well as the processes involved in manufacturing, highlighting the negativity that our ignorance to keep up with fashion has on the planet. This read is an eye opener into the ecological and social impact of clothing production on a global level, which all fashion junkies should consider, by understanding the labels that make up the story of their clothes, before they decide to go on their next shopping spurge. Siegle, a guilty shopaholic, connects with the reader/consumer, urging them to think more carefully about their future purchases by questioning where it came from, who made it, how long will it last and how environmentally friendly it is. These are some of the questions that are addressed in an attempt to uncover the binding truths of the consequences of fashion consumerism.
