Fashion has always sought to celebrate nature - from sumptuous silks and floral patterns, to the spectacular creations of designers such as Stella McCartney and Christopher Raeburn, it is a centuries-old seam running through the clothes we all wear. In spite of this reverence for the natural world, fashion seems destined to harm it. 'Fashioned from Nature' examines our dependence on the natural world. The impact of certain trends has been felt for centuries, with sometimes devastating effect as seen in the demand for ivory and exotic feathers. Past generations were not immune to fads - the sudden ubiquity of reptile skin accessories in the 1920s had obvious knock-on effects. That said, the current era of intense consumerism and fast fashion has taken things to a new level and this book discusses the need to develop a more responsible fashion cycle in which both producers and consumers have a stake.
