Praise for The Conscious Closet

“A must-read for all fashion lovers who care about the state of the planet.”⁠—Booklist (starred review)

“[A] thoroughly researched blueprint for making sustainable, humane clothing decisions…. Melding worrisome facts, intuitive tips, and helpful resources, Cline’s intelligent work provides plenty of tips for making ethical consumer choices.”—Publishers Weekly

Praise for Elizabeth Cline and Overdressed

“Cline is the Michael Pollan of fashion…Hysterical levels of sartorial consumption are terrible for the environment, for workers, and even, ironically, for the way we look.”⁠—Michelle Goldberg, Newsweek/The Daily Beast

“How did Americans end up with closets crammed with flimsy, ridiculously cheap garments? Elizabeth Cline travels the world to trace the rise of fast fashion and its cost in human misery, environmental damage, and common sense.”⁠—Katha Pollitt, columnist for The Nation

Overdressed is eye-opening and definitely turns retailing on its head. Cline’s insightful book reveals the serious problems facing our industry today. The tremendous values and advantages of domestic production are often ignored in favor of a price point that makes clothing disposable.”⁠—Erica Wolf, executive director, Save the Garment Center
