Saving the world in high heels (and hemp knickers), the first manual for the conscientious fashionista
For girls who care about global warming, and next season's hot looks, Green is the New Black is a must-have accessory.

She explains the principles of ethical fashion, from why it matters to how to do it.

And includes fun facts and essential directories on every aspect of sustainable stylish living.
With fashion secrets from celebrity friends, Green is the New Black is the chicest, greenest survival manual around. If you want to change the world, and your wardrobe, don't go shopping without it.
