'Lauren Bravo is one of my favourite writers' Dolly Alderton
'Bravo will inspire you to repair, recycle and give old items a new lease of life' Stylist
You probably know the statistics: global clothing production has roughly doubled in just 15 years, and every year an estimated 300,000 tonnes of used clothing ends up in UK landfill.
Fast fashion is the ultimate toxic relationship. It's bad news for the planet, our brains and our bank balances. We can't go on like this; our shopping habits need an overhaul.
Journalist Lauren Bravo loves clothes more than anything, but she's called time on her affair with fast fashion in search of a slower, saner way of dressing. In this book, she'll help you do the same.
How To Break Up With Fast Fashion will help you to change your mindset, fall back in love with your wardrobe and embrace more sustainable ways of shopping - from the clothes swap to the charity shop. Full of refreshing honesty and realistic advice, Lauren will inspire you to repair, recycle and give your unloved items a new lease of life without sacrificing your style.
Because fashion belongs to everyone, but no outfit should cost us the earth.
Once you are in charge of a project, it is better not to try to create weird shapes, although they could look nice, because the client may or may not like them; the house that you are redesigning today, sometimes for a full renovation, may be resold in the near future to buy a bigger house or a different house from that desired by the client; then the problem of the sale would arise. The space that you are designing must satisfy the market standards; their value will have to increase and at the same time the clients needs to be satisfied.
For this reason, the project will have to think about all these things, unless you find a very wealthy client that does not want to consider such rational elements because he wants the result to be exclusive: for instance a sheik.
Let’s go back down to earth to consider a client’s expectations in general:
He/she expects from you a house that satisfies his/her needs within a regular and ordinary life with appropriate concepts of aesthetics and functionality, with finishes compliant with his/her “STATUS SYMBOL”.
During the appointments with your client, try to use the correct words, (this could also be good as a general habit), talk softly, try to articulate your words well, show enthusiasm and flexibility while talking; never say “no” strongly, prefer instead “we will see that later”, always think before giving an answer, don’t ever be hasty or inaccurate.
If you don’t know the answer, take your time and give priority to some other topics that you consider as more important. Therefore, it is necessary to have a design education together with the ability to synthesize and a knowledge of materials and above all colors, as they are important for choices; every client has preferences that you’ll have to take into account: this is where you need more ability as the client’s favorite colors may not give the results you expected: it would be good to use your experience and show the psychological aspects of colors and their functions.
In order to obtain a rational composition of the project, the interior designer must learn to listen the client very carefully to best interpret his/her expectations, otherwise the project will surely not be successful: the designer will then be forced to reject the assignment with a resulting negative promotion.
A secret and a strength for the interior designer is also the ability to take quick and firm decisions and take on responsibilities about the choices taken.
He/she should moreover examine all the material that the client will bring for the design; furniture elements, colors, type of doors, floors, coverings, wall finish, etc...
These documents will give a quick summary of the client’s desires and expectations: magazines, press clippings, Internet sites where he found ideas.
For the work to be successful and not to waste time and to retain the client, all of these documents must be precious to you, you can’t neglect them, as many usually do, erroneously believing that the client will accept the designer’s needs.
All the projects need an investigation work, the designer has the task to consult specific magazines, specific interior magazines, to see other people’s houses, also those shown on TV. An idea or a cue can come from anything, even a thought, provided that we keep a flexible and open attitude towards any comparison.
The T-54 and T-55 are a family of tanks designed in the Soviet Union, descendants of the armored vehicles used during the II WW by this ancient power. The T-55 is sibling of the T-54 which was developed from this with a series of important modifications and that saw the light in 1955. Basically, it is actually an improve-ment of the T-54 which was decided to change its name for some reason, but that retains so much of the initial design that it should have been a T-54 with its bullet corresponding to the revised version. One of the most important improvements offered by the T-54/55 with respect to the old tanks was the incorporation of the 100mm cannon that some units of the T-44 already introduced. The hull is formed by welded plates and the tower is made of cast iron … This is how the best mod-eling book oriented to these iconic tanks begins.

Supermarket produce sections bulging with a year-round supply of perfectly round, bright red-orange tomatoes have become all but a national birthright. But in Tomatoland, which is based on his James Beard Award-winning article, "The Price of Tomatoes," investigative food journalist Barry Estabrook reveals the huge human and environmental cost of the $5 billion fresh tomato industry. Fields are sprayed with more than one hundred different herbicides and pesticides. Tomatoes are picked hard and green and artificially gassed until their skins acquire a marketable hue. Modern plant breeding has tripled yields, but has also produced fruits with dramatically reduced amounts of calcium, vitamin A, and vitamin C, and tomatoes that have fourteen times more sodium than the tomatoes our parents enjoyed. The relentless drive for low costs has fostered a thriving modern-day slave trade in the United States. How have we come to this point?
Estabrook traces the supermarket tomato from its birthplace in the deserts of Peru to the impoverished town of Immokalee, Florida, a.k.a. the tomato capital of the United States. He visits the laboratories of seedsmen trying to develop varieties that can withstand the rigors of agribusiness and still taste like a garden tomato, and then moves on to commercial growers who operate on tens of thousands of acres, and eventually to a hillside field in Pennsylvania, where he meets an obsessed farmer who produces delectable tomatoes for the nation's top restaurants.
Throughout Tomatoland, Estabrook presents a who's who cast of characters in the tomato industry: the avuncular octogenarian whose conglomerate grows one out of every eight tomatoes eaten in the United States; the ex-Marine who heads the group that dictates the size, color, and shape of every tomato shipped out of Florida; the U.S. attorney who has doggedly prosecuted human traffickers for the past decade; and the Guatemalan peasant who came north to earn money for his parents' medical bills and found himself enslaved for two years.
Tomatoland reads like a suspenseful whodunit as well as an expose of today's agribusiness systems and the price we pay as a society when we take taste and thought out of our food purchases.

It’s about using French concepts and routines to change our homes, our relationships, and our lives for the better.
