The juried exhibition Redefining, Redesigning Fashion: Designs for Sustainability reveals the exciting potential for creative recycling, repurposing, and reclaiming to reshape fashion design in the future.
The clothing designs featured range from whimsical (a dress made from colorful pop-top tabs), to sophisticated and wearable (a little black dress made from one piece of cloth with no cutting or waste).
“We sought a partnership with Treadle Yard Goods for this exhibition because Treadle has been fostering creativity in sewing since 1976. It’s a great match,” says Goldstein director Lin Nelson-Mayson.
