Fashionopolis: The Price of Fast Fashion and the Future of Clothes
An online reading and conversation with Dana Thomas from Paris
Today, the clothing industry employs 1 in 6 people on the planet.

Dana Thomas gives us an eye-opening account and profiles activists, artisans, and eco-conscious designers working for change.
