Summary, etc.: Historically, the apparel trade has exploited labor, the environment, and intellectual property. Today's clothing industry churns out 80 billion garments a year and employs every sixth person on Earth-- and the abuses have multiplied exponentially. Thomas interviews the visionary designers and companies who are propelling the industry toward that more positive future by reclaiming traditional craft and launching cutting-edge sustainable technologies to produce better fashion. From printing 3-D clothes to clean denim processing and even lab-grown materials she highlights the future of the garment industry. -- adapted from jacket
