Wild Dress: Clothing and the Natural World | Kate Fletcher
Kate Fletcher is a fashion and sustainability pioneer, whose work in the field has spanned over two decades. The autobiographical essays in this engaging collection are about the interdependence between garments and nature as part of life and living. A fleeting connection to a father's jumper, the feeling of running in a skirt, a new pair of wool socks, and a spill into mud - memories, clothing and the landscape merge, come together.
Wild Dress documents how we wear clothes in ways that add weight to and awareness of the natural world.
Includes fifteen colour photographs of Macclesfield Forest and the Goyt Valley in the Peak District and Garsdale in the Yorkshire Dales by Charlie Meecham.
