Description - Dharma of Fashion: A Buddhist Approach to Our Life with Clothes by Otto von Busch
Can we find more-meaningful ways to be with fashion than a continual cycle of purchasing a very limited sense of freedom?... Can we transform habits of self-indulgence into insight? We hunger for connection, being seen, and feeling popular, and with cheap and accessible clothes around the corner or a click away, we buy and discard clothes like never before. Fashion "hacktivist" von Busch and Buddhist teacher Josh Korda show how a Buddhist perspective on fashion can help us engage with clothes in wiser ways. Includes "action exercises" to help put ideas into practice in your life and closet. Here's a quirky, irreverent way to consider what's a more sustainable way to be with - and still enjoy - fashion. AUTHOR: Otto von Busch, PhD (New York, NY), is an artist and designer examining how fashion can be a vehicle for social sustainability, peace, and justice. He is Associate Professor of Integrated Design at Parsons School of Design in New York. SELLING POINTS: . A quirky, irreverent way to think about what our fashion choices say about us . Appeals to fashion lovers also concerned about consumerism, sustainability, and meaning beyond shopping and social media . Includes "action exercises" to help put ideas into practice in your life and closet 23 colour and b/w images
