Synopsis

'A funny, achievable guide' Observer



'Lauren Bravo is one of my favourite writers' Dolly Alderton



'Bravo will inspire you to repair, recycle and give old items a new lease of life' Stylist



You probably know the statistics: global clothing production has roughly doubled in just 15 years, and every year an estimated 300,000 tonnes of used clothing ends up in UK landfill.



Fast fashion is the ultimate toxic relationship. It's bad news for the planet, our brains and our bank balances. We can't go on like this; our shopping habits need an overhaul.



Journalist Lauren Bravo loves clothes more than anything, but she's called time on her affair with fast fashion in search of a slower, saner way of dressing. In this book, she'll help you do the same.



How To Break Up With Fast Fashion will help you to change your mindset, fall back in love with your wardrobe and embrace more sustainable ways of shopping - from the clothes swap to the charity shop. Full of refreshing honesty and realistic advice, Lauren will inspire you to repair, recycle and give your unloved items a new lease of life without sacrificing your style.



Because fashion belongs to everyone, but no outfit should cost us the earth.

Lauren Bravo is a freelance journalist who writes about fashion, popular culture, food, travel and feminism, for places like Grazia, Refinery29 UK, Cosmopolitan, Stylist, easyJet Traveller, Time Out,Delicious, the Telegraph and the Guardian. She was The Pool's 'Wardrobe Stories' columnist. Her first book, What Would The Spice Girls Do? was published by Transworld in 2018. In 2019, Lauren went on a year-long fast fashion ban. She volunteers in a charity shop once a week (to get first dibs on all the best clothes). Lauren has written about fashion since 2009, and about changing the way that we shop since 2016. She is on Twitter and Instagram as @laurenbravo.
