Everything is interconnected. Dress accordingly. In this free-wheeling collection of lyric essays and poems, Kate Fletcher and Helen Mort explore fashion, ecology and wild landscapes. Their dialogue ranges from gloves to gritstone, and explores gender, the lives of garments, the imperative of change, the cost of adventure and possibilities for fashion as part of, not separate from, the living world.
Kate Fletcher is a Professor at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, University of the Arts London and the Royal Danish Academy, Copenhagen. Her work has come to both define and challenge the field of fashion and sustainability. This is her tenth book and her first with Helen. Kate’s latest work is about design and nature.
Helen Mort is a poet and novelist. Her collections Division Street and No Map Could Show Them are published by Chatto and her third, The Illustrated Woman is due in 2022. She’s a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and teaches at Manchester Metropolitan University. Her first memoir A Line Above The Sky was published by Ebury in 2022 and deals with motherhood, risk and mountaineering.
