"A must-read for anyone who has ever questioned why clothes matter. This richly intelligent book explains the importance of who makes our clothes and what you are revealing by your fashion choices. Fascinating!" --Anne Sebba, author of Les Parisiennes and That Woman "I loved reading Clare's book, and I go back to it often. It's insightful, compelling and a real source of reference. It is obviously written from an insider's point of view, which makes it so relevant, and it takes you on a journey to expand your fashion horizons." --Orsola de Castro, co-founder of Fashion Revolution "Today, it's impossible for us to remain willfully blind to the issues Clare highlights in Wardrobe Crisis. Her commentary and guidance is lighthearted but hard-hitting, and so enabling in its exploration of sustainability as a norm, not a trend. A great read. Thoroughly enjoyed it!" --Margaret Zhang, photographer, director, stylist, writer --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Engaging, engaged but not preachy. Thoughtful and lovingly well-researched. This is the best book I have read since Alice Oswald's "Memorial". I enjoyed reading it, learnt something and had a few chuckles along the way; I strongly recommend it.

Lovely insightful read!Reviewed in Italy on 8 May 2020
Lovely insightful read!
Conscience-rattling and mind-expanding, but never preachyReviewed in the United States on 17 September 2019
I savoured every chapter of this book, for its wonderful historical account of fashion, the stories of the designers (both old and new), but equally for the information about what the production of clothing truly costs in human and environmental terms. Clare Press' writing style is conversational and easy to read, and even though she's dealing with a lot of difficult material (no pun intended), it never feels condescending or judgmental. Absolutely loved it!
