Unusual Threads: Stitching Together the Future of Fashion explores sustainability within haute couture fashion.
Creating sustainability within the fashion industry requires a focus on the longevity, impact, and the future use of textiles. Readymade clothing, fast fashion and the over consumption of clothing have created a way of living that is comfortable and affordable but extremely harmful to the earth and to underpaid workers.
Unusual Threads approaches the wearable art and fashion world through a forward-thinking lens. The designers and artists included in this exhibition are using new and inventive methods of recycling, repurposing and creating with organic materials. The result is a variety of haute-couture fashion pieces created from unusual and striking materials.
Artists & Designers Include:
Anna VA Polesny
Julia & Robin Rogers
Natalia Martinez Sagan
