The Book

Knock-off designer handbags, shoplifting, sweatshop labor, provocative advertising, these are just a few examples of complex ethical issues in the fashion industry today. Ethics are about making good decisions, and in the fashion industry—where it is essential to work cooperatively with many different people—understanding ethics is key to being an honest, informed, and effective employee. Ethics in the Fashion Industry provides readers with the tools they need to develop and practice ethical decision-making skills.
