Elizabeth L. Cline

Elizabeth L. Cline is a New York-based journalist author of Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion. Cline is a self-proclaimed former cheap-fashion junkie who traveled the world from Bangladesh to China to South Carolina and beyond to uncover the hidden toll our clothing addiction is taking on the environment, the economy, and even our happiness. Cline has been hailed as the "Michael Pollan of fashion," and the New York Timescalls her a "persuasive advocate" for a slow fashion movement.
