Members of the fashion industry have rallied behind a new book, "FutureFashion White Papers," that champions sustainability.
Diane von Furstenberg, Barneys New York's Julie Gilhart, Steven Kolb of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Liz Claiborne Inc.'s Tim Gunn and models Shalom Harlow and Elettra Wiedemann are among those who have made contributions to the book. The 287-page tome is part of a series addressing sustainability that has been published by Earth Pledge, an environmentally minded agency that works with government, industry and community groups. The aim is to promote renewable, reusable and nonpolluting ways to design.
