Circular Fashion: Making the Fashion Industry Sustainable

Peggy Blum


Circular fashion is a supply chain model based on the principles of circular economy and sustainable development. This practical introduction to the subject explores the opportunities and challenges this revolutionary model presents for the textile and apparel industry. Divided into five parts, the book explores the circular supply chain integrated in five key components: 1 Create; 2 Make; 3 Market; 4 Use; 5 Renew. Case studies and profiles from best practise companies such as Patagonia, Veja, Christopher Raeburn and Stella McCartney are featured throughout. This is a must-read for students, creatives and anyone who is passionate about sustainability and fashion.
