Synopsis

*Shortlisted for the Bread and Roses Prize, 2015*







*Winner of the ICA Bookshop Book of the Year 2014*







Stitched Up delves into the alluring world of fashion to reveal what is behind the clothes we wear. Moving between Karl Lagerfeld and Karl Marx, the book explores consumerism, class and advertising to reveal the interests which benefit from exploitation.







Tansy E. Hoskins dissects fashion's vampiric relationship with the planet and with our bodies to uncover what makes it so damaging. Why does 'size zero' exist and what is the reality of working life for models? In a critique of the portrayal of race in fashion, the book also examines the global balance of power in the industry.







Beautifully illustrated with specially commissioned designs, In a compelling conclusion Stitched Up explores the use of clothing to resist. Can you shock an industry that loves to shock? Is 'green fashion' an alternative? Stitched Up provides a unique critical examination of contemporary culture and the distorting priorities of capitalism.

Tansy E. Hoskins is a writer and activist, campaigning previously for Stop the War Coalition and the CND, she is now focused on exposing the misogyny, exploitation and wastefulness obscured by the glamour and allure of the fashion industry. She is the author of Stitched Up: The Anti-Capitalist Book of Fashion (Pluto, 2014). She writes for the Guardian and Business of Fashion, and has appeared on the BBC, Al Jazeera and Channel 4's Ten O'Clock Live.
