REV On Air: Sustainability in the Time of Covid 19 with Journalist Dana Thomas
We speak to journalist and author of Fashionopolis Dana Thomas about how fashion is being impacted by Covid 19, and where we might be on the other side of this pandemic. We also talk about the rise and perhaps now the fall of fast fashion, and why we should be thinking about what we purchase particularly in the lead up to Fashion Revolution Week.
‘I did not aim to write a book about smart, fabulous women but there I found myself writing about another smart, fabulous woman. This entire book is about cool women who are brave, who are courageous, who have conviction and integrity.’
