FASHION TALKS // Book Club with Tansy Hoskins FOOT WORK; What Your Shoes Are Doing to the World
Our September FASHION TALKS // Book Club session welcomes the wonderful Tansy Hoskins and her new book FOOT WORK: What your shoes are doing to the world.
When Tansy isn't an investigative journalist covering the global covering the garment industry she is also an author to winning books such as her first, STITCHED UP; The Anti-Capitalist Book of Fashion. We can't wait to delve into her new publication which exposés the dark origins of the shoes on our feet.
In 2018, 66.3 million pairs of shoes were manufactured across the world every single day. They have never been cheaper to buy, and we have never been more convinced that we need to buy them. Yet their cost to the planet has never been greater.
In this urgent, passionately argued book, Tansy Hoskins opens our eyes to the dark origins of the shoes on our feet. Taking us deep into the heart of an industry that is exploiting workers and deceiving consumers, we begin to understand that if we don't act fast, this humble household object will take us to the point of no return.
Tansy E. Hoskins is a UK-based author, journalist.
