Fun & Responsible
The Fashion Fix by Lexi Rees and Eveyjoan is a YA girls interactive book showing how to be sustainable in our fashion choices.
The book is split into chapters looking at various topics including how much our clothes cost us and why cheap may be bad (sweatshops); the pros and cons of various materials; how to upcycle our clothes; how to accessorise and much more. The book is designed to make our young girls think about where our clothes come from and not to be wasteful in our choices. We all want to be responsible shoppers not exploiting either people or our planet.
Included in the book are activities that are not only fun but enable us to think about sustainability in fashion.
There are pages of patterns showing us how to tie dye, make pompoms, repurpose our clothes and much more.
The Fashion Fix will educate whilst also providing fun things to do and also helping to develop new skills.
The Fashion Fix is ideal for girls aged ten years and over – and for anyone who wants to recycle, upcycle and be responsibly fashionable. The Fashion Fix is a fun book whatever your age.
I received a free copy for a blog tour with Rachel’s Random Resources. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
