Within a professional setting such as a business or educational institution, people make decisions about what level of attention and care they give to the tasks at hand, what they produce, how they produce it and how they present their work to others. If we never had to deal with people, we would not have any reason to worry about ethics. Ethics in the Fashion Industry studies the relationships between individuals within departments in the textiles, apparel and retailing industries, as well as the decision-making processes and ethical implications of their actions. Paulins and Hillery hope to make students aware of controversial issues within the industry and of potential consequences or benefits of their actions as they work through the decision-making process. Thus creating professionals who make good decisions.Features:-- Draws upon "real word" experience through interviews with industry professionals-- Case studies supplement the content of each chapter-- CD-ROM includes projects that relate to the issues discussed in each chapter-- Instructor's Guide provides suggestions for planning the course and using the text in the classroom
