Tomorrow, Parsons The New School for Design will unveil its most recent exhibition: Zero Waste Denim, in collaboration with Loomstate. On view through February 23, 2011 at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, the multimedia exhibition gives visitors a behind the scenes look at zero wast fashion and sustainable design--click through for a sneak peak!
At the opening reception tomorrow, Loomstate will announce the winning student-designed zero waste fashion that they will produce as part of their fall 2011 collection.
Timo Rissanen, assistant professor of Fashion Design and Sustainability at Parsons, taught Parsons inaugural course on zero waste fashion this past fall. Loomstate founders Scott Mackinlay Hahn and Rogan Gregory served as mentors to students as they learned how to design zero waste garments.
