On my bookshelf

Hello everyone, namasté!

I hope you are all fine, it’s monsoon season in Nepal, humidity and this heat are killing us but still we love this season.

It came to my mind last time that I could present you 3 books that I like the most. It all relates to the same theme of slow fashion and how to start a fashion / textile based label. So, here is my selection :

Slow Fashion by Safia Minney

Safia Minney is the CEO of People Tree, an clothing fair trade brand based in the UK and Japan. Safia gathers in this book different designers, bloggers, manufacturers and activist who believe in the Slow Fashion.

Lastly, I came to write a small post to know the difference on what is ethical, sustainable and slow fashion.


Why you should read this book? This book will be very interesting for the one who would need to research on slow fashion since it compiles many case studies and testimonies / interviews of those working with slow fashion.

How to set up & run a Fashion Label by Toby Meadows

One of my favorite books to deeply understand on how to run your label, from the marketing research into the supply chain process and the details of dealing with retailers.

This book is very much concrete as possible thanks to case studies and working templates. You will also have access to additional contents via a website.

Why you should read this book?  If you an entrepreneur or you have already started your fashion/ textile brand some times ago, it still gives you great professional advice and clear things.

The fashion designer: survival guide by Mary Gelhar

This book has similarities with the second one, but I would still recommend it since it brings a higher dimension (strategy wise) on your manufacturing strategy and bring an in-depth explanation for your business plan including tips on investments strategy (private equity, return on investment).

Why you should read this book? This book is perfect for new entrepreneur or people who would be interested in the field to start soon or later their fashion label.
