'Bravo will inspire you to repair, recycle and give old items a new lease of life' Stylist

You probably know the statistics: global clothing production has roughly doubled in just 15 years, and every year an estimated 300,000 tonnes of used clothing ends up in UK landfill.

Fast fashion is the ultimate toxic relationship. It's bad news for the planet, our brains and our bank balances. We can't go on like this; our shopping habits need an overhaul.

Journalist Lauren Bravo loves clothes more than anything, but she's called time on her affair with fast fashion in search of a slower, saner way of dressing. In this book, she'll help you do the same.

How To Break Up With Fast Fashion will help you to change your mindset, fall back in love with your wardrobe and embrace more sustainable ways of shopping - from the clothes swap to the charity shop. Full of refreshing honesty and realistic advice, Lauren will inspire you to repair, recycle and give your unloved items a new lease of life without sacrificing your style.

Because fashion belongs to everyone, but no outfit should cost us the earth.

    As someone who has been trying to consciously change her shopping habits for years, this book made me realise that in a lot of ways I've been missing the point. However, it never talks down to you, or puts you on any more of guilt trip than most of us are all already on. It's just the facts, pure and simple, with a really clear guide on how we can do better and a relatable narrator to remind you that we're all human. For anyone wanting to change up their fashion ways, this book is invaluable.
