The clothing industry churns out 80 billion garments a year and employs every sixth person on Earth. Throughout this frenzied production, the apparel trade exploits labor, the environment and intellectual property—abuses which have multiplied exponentially in the last 30 years, primarily out of view.
Bestselling journalist and Logan Nonfiction alumna Dana Thomas examines the fashion industry and the effects it has had on the global workforce, economy and environment in her new book, “Fashionopolis.”
Join us as we hear Dana speak about her research, the price of fast fashion, visionaries changing the industry and how to answer the ever-present question: What should I wear?
