Ecofashion brings together new perspectives for the field of fashion studies, asking a compelling set of research questions related to consumption practices and sustainability at a time of environmental crisis. The volume begins with a discussion of keywords used by theorists and the industry to address ecologically oriented fashion practices, including the rationale behind the usage of "ecofashion." Articles address natural looks that emerged in the 1960s, the rise of "green as the new black" at the beginning of the twenty-first century, recycling and the appeal of "slow fashion," and the science that informs the making of environmentally conscious garments. Other articles show how these concepts are linked to mass-market trends underway in the globalized political economy, offering especially important connections for scholars who seek to bridge fashion theory to issues of concern in environmental and global studies.
