Age of Plastic / Fashion, Colonialism, Climate Change and Consumption... with Aja Barber

Listen on

Episode notes

So excited to be join today by Aja Barber. She is a writer, personal stylist and style consultant based in South London. Her work focuses on sustainability, ethics, intersectional feminism racism and all the ways systems of power effect our buying habits.

Her debut book 'CONSUMED THE NEED FOR COLLECTIVE CHANGE: COLONIALISM, CLIMATE CHANGE & CONSUMERISM' is out now!

We discuss not only her book - obviously - but questions like is fast fashion killing fashion for future designers? How you can do slow fashion, how not to fall for the fast fashion styling tricks, respecting the so called unskilled jobs, why we don’t need all the things and what the fashion industry needs to do to get out of this hot mess and social media’s role in all of this.
