“This is a primer for future fashion game changers.” –  Kelly Cobb, University of Delaware, US

“There are other books out there but they all focus on specific aspects of sustainability in fashion. I am looking for a wider, more theoretical approach and I feel this book will fill those needs.” –  Brenda Brandley, Lethbridge College, US

“The unique value lies in its combination of design and merchandising concepts. This integration of topics fills a gap in the teaching literature. The integrated discussion of topics is well done and aligns with my course because of the topics I cover, which include sustainable design, sourcing and social responsibility, and fair trade/trade policy.” –  Tasha Lewis, Cornell University, US

“The comprehensive view of sustainability covers more topics than previous books I have used.” –  Lori A. Faulkner, Ferris State University, US
