Sass Brown is one of the more hardcore ladies when it comes to Eco Fashion. I really like her thoughts on fashion and the way we handle it. She is Acting Associate Dean for the School of Art and Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York. Originally from London, England, Sass established herself as a designer with her own signature collection selling in the UK and across Canada. As a researcher, writer, blogger and educator, her area of expertise is ethical fashion, in all of its various expressions, from slow design and heritage craft skills to recycle, reuse and new business models.
She has published papers, spoken, taught and advised women’s cooperatives, educational institutions, governmental agencies, NGO’s, SME’s and the creative industries in Brazil, Peru, Columbia, Chile, Sri Lanka, Korea, China, Italy, France, US, Canada and the UK, on the topic of sustainable design. Brown communicates and promotes the best in eco fashion design, through a multitude of media, most notably her books; Eco Fashion and ReFashioned, her website www.ecofashiontalk.com and her journalism.
Just dive into the articles at her website Eco Fashion Talk, there is material enough for many many hours of reading, very interesting and with a lot of inspiration for either buying beautiful organic clothes or making it your self.
