This new exhibition at Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) has us checking prices on flights on London. 'Fashioned from Nature' spans 400 years of fashion, ranging from natural history specimens to the latest innovations in fabrics and dyeing. Curator Edwina Ehrman says her aim is to encourage visitors to consider the sources of fashion and its materials, but the collection is a visual delight.

FutureLearn and University of Exeter have teamed up with Fashion Revolution, creating a course intended to help lift the lid on the global fashion industry:
"We will share with you a variety of simple techniques to find the answer yourself, and to use your findings to press the fashion industry to value people, the environment, creativity and profit in equal measure. It will encourage us to question what we, as active global citizens, can do to enable change."
