The Closet Scientist: Get your Personal Style PhD.
This book, launching in mid 2018, is a closet curation resource that looks at things a little differently.
Inside the covers of The Closet Scientist you will not be told:
- That your closet essentials are a black turtle neck sweater and a Burberry trench.
- How to dress like a French person.
- What inanimate object (ruler, apple, pear, inverted triangle, or hourglass) your body resembles and how you must accordingly clad it.
The Closet Scientist will not inundate you with:
- Page after page of depressing-but-true statistics on how the fashion industry impacts on people, animals, and Planet that leave you with a bout of compassion fatigue and no guide on how to take action
- Advice on what you ‘must -do’ in regards to colour, cut, proportion, layers or any thing else for that matter
- Patronising language that makes your fashion journey seem frivolous.
What the heck is about then?
The Closet Scientist was created to bridge the gap between the rock (all the hard stats and facts on the fashion industry and our Planet) and the fluffy place (the fun style-based books that tell you what to wear and how to wear it) so that you can navigate both sides of the fashion narrative from an educated and selective point of view.
Frequently Asked Questions about The Closet Scientist
The Closet Scientist launch has been long awaited and much anticipated. Please check the FAQ below for any enquiries you might have about it’s content or the launch and your patience is much appreciated (because all good things take time)
When and Where Can I Buy this Book?
The book will be available to purchase online in the upcoming months. There may be a printed copy at a later date but this will be determined by demand from you guys, publishers and/or the availability of finances to self publish.
How Much Will it Cost?
The end price of this e-book is yet to be decided but it should be around the $16 AUD mark for the e-copy. A bargain when you consider that it took more than 40k+ and fifteen years of academic learning and career experience to create it.
Why has it's release been on hold for so long?
The book was designed as part of academic research into the effectiveness of Sustainability Education strategies. Unfortunately the department that was to oversee this study was closed and the release of The Closet Scientist has been on hold until a suitable study supervisor can be found.
Is this a Sustainable Fashion Book?
Yes and no but the short answer is no. This book teaches you how to think critically about decision making from a place of awareness. It’s based on the principles of science and littered with scientific literature that’s presented in a fun (and totally not boring) way. It doesn’t go into the environmental and social issues associated with the fashion industry but teaches you how to find information on these kinds of topics that interest you.
Does it Work with the Eco Style Insiders Courses?
Absolutely! This book was written as a standalone resource or one that will work perfectly with the content that you find on the Eco Style Insiders members site. This members site offers a one week free trial where you can complete a crash course in sustainability, but offers so much more! Including style courses that fit directly with The Closet Scientist book.
