Upcycling clothing book sparks Fashion Revolution

Penguin Life has snagged world rights in a book on how to “make our clothes last longer, and the reasons why we must”.

Editorial director Emily Robertson struck the deal for Orsola de Castro’s Loved Clothes Last with Kate Evans at PFD.

De Castro is the founder of “pro-fashion protest group” Fashion Revolution, which lobbies for a more sustainable, transparent fashion industry. The title is billed as a “part manifesto, part manual”.
