Gisela  Burckhardt - Dead Smart


Fashion and morals – why expensive does not mean fair

What a fatal error: when we buy designer labels, we think the higher price is justified by better quality – including the manufacturing conditions. Women working for the clothing industry in Bangladesh are hardly likely to die for upmarket brands … Wrong! Expensive fashion labels also have their products made in dreadful conditions. As long as it is cheap nothing else matters, even if it costs human lives.

A book about the dark secret of upmarket fashion labels – both accusation and hope, for we can force textile companies to act responsibly.

•A report that goes under the skin – by an internationally active expert
