Wild Dress: Clothing & the Natural World
Released early May 2019 from Uniform books: Wild Dress: Clothing & the Natural World.
From the blurb: In this collection of writings, Kate Fletcher explores relationships between garments and human embeddedness in nature. Going beyond the idea that nature is a means to human ends; Wild Dress documents how we wear clothes in ways that give more weight and awareness to the natural world.
The book comprises a series of autobiographical texts about what happens when clothing and nature meet and offers an entirely new perspective on fashion pleasure and ecological limits.
