Creating sustainable fashion has never been more important. Circular Fashion provides an accessible, practical, and holistic approach to this key topic for anyone studying fashion.

This introductory text to sustainability in fashion includes best practice case studies and profiles of key companies such as Patagonia, Veja, Christopher Raeburn, and Stella McCartney. It begins with an overview of the fashion business, tackling the issues of the linear production model of make, use, dispose, before introducing the idea of the circular supply chain.

Circular Fashion is the must-have book for fashion students, creatives and anyone passionate about sustainability and fashion.

Jenny Auld, Legible Blog
Circular Fashion is an eminently readable analysis of the social and environmental impact of every aspect of the textile and clothing industry [...] There is a stunning depth of research in Circular Fashion and some fun discoveries along the way as well. Because of this book I started to follow innovative designers [....] I really enjoyed the section that lists all of the conventional materials used for clothing production and unpacks their pros and cons, as well as the fascinating discussion of innovative materials (like those made from potato peels, mushrooms, oranges, and pineapples), and forward-looking, sustainable processes like green chemistry and digital finishing.
Corinna Budnarowska, International Journal of Sustainable Fashion & Textiles
This book... has become a bookshelf go-to for me in both my personal reflection of my own fashion consumption practice and my professional practice as a fashion educator. Blum sets the tone as one of realism but with a clear sense of optimism that the fashion industry and fashion consumers can do better... I would highly recommend this book to fashion academics, educators and anyone involved in the business of fashion, alongside fashion consumers that want to reflect upon their consumption behaviour and make some positive changes to it. Blum offers not only hope but viable business solutions to creating a more circular fashion movement.
