Book Review: Naked Fashion by Safia Minney

Safia Minney as you may or may not know, is the founder and CEO of our personal favorite fair trade fashion label, People Tree. She is also author of this rather fabulous book, which we think definitely deserves our attempt at a review.

Naked Fashion is the perfect handbook to ethical fashion for anyone, from newcomers to experts. Jam-packed with all sorts of information concerning sustainable style and illustrated with beautiful pictures, this is a must have resource for anyone wishing to move the fashion world into a better place.

After a cracking start with an inspiring foreword by Livia Firth and Lucy Seigle, there are sections oozing with detail on everything from life in Bangladeshi slums and fashions impact on the earth, to the medias role in unethical trading. there are plenty of inspiring stories and interviews from people who are helping these changes happen, including Emma Watson, Vivienne Westwood and Orla Kiely.
Naked Fashion is incredibly informative, with extensive and in depth information on the fair trade supply chain and how ethical fashion really works. We know it will appeal to fair trade fanatics and fashion lovers alike. We love this book, and anticipate it to be a massive helping hand in our campaign.
