CHICAGO EXHIBIT: ZERØ Waste: Fashion Re-Patterned

by , 03/16/11   filed under: Ecouterre Events Listing

Event Starts: March 3, 2011
Event Ends: April 16, 2011

The essence of fashion is change—making it directly opposed to the principles of sustainability and sustainable design processes. This reliance on constant change, in tandem with its never-ending search for seasonal novelty, means that besides being an immensely dynamic cultural phenomenon, fashion is also extremely wasteful. ZERØ Waste attempts to find solutions for dealing with fashion’s waste, as well as challenge fashion systems through their conceptual framework. In doing so, the exhibition examines the intimate connection between fashion and waste and highlights sustainable design practices and fashion products that consider the use and reduction or elimination of waste (pre- and post-consumer) as part of the design process and production of garments.

Contributing designers and artists include A Magazine, Nick Cave, Padmaja Krishnan, Maison Martin Margiela, Holly McQuillan, Derick Melander, Refinity + Berber Soepboer, and Timo Rissanen.
