Synopsis: You look good in those jeans. But are those jeans themselves good? Have you ever looked into where they came from and who made them?

Andrew Brooks has, and with Clothing Poverty he takes readers on a global journey, from fabric to fashion show, to reveal the worldwide commodity chains and hidden trade networks that transect the globe and perpetuate poverty. Stitching together rich narratives from markets in Mozambique, Nigerian smugglers, Bolivian traders, London vintage shops, and growing ethical fashion lines like Vivienne Westwood’s, Brooks draws connections and shines light in the world’s dark corners and forces us to think anew about fashion, ethics, and our role in global production and exploitation.

About the Author: Andrew Brooks is a lecturer in development geography at King’s College, London.

Book Description ZED BOOKS LTD, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Have you ever stopped and wondered where your jeans came from? Who made them and where? Ever wondered where they end up after you donate them for recycling? Following a pair of jeans, Clothing Poverty takes the reader on a vivid around-the-world tour to reveal how clothes are manufactured and retailed, bringing to light how fast fashion and clothing recycling are interconnected. Andrew Brooks shows how recycled clothes are traded across continents, uncovers how retailers and international charities are embroiled in commodity chains which perpetuate poverty, and exposes the hidden trade networks which transect the globe. Stitching together rich narratives, from Mozambican markets, Nigerian smugglers and Chinese factories to London s vintage clothing scene, TOMS shoes and Vivienne Westwood s ethical fashion lines, Brooks uncovers the many hidden sides of fashion.
