Just in time for New York Fashion Week, Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator is launching an exhibition that explores the kinship between fashion and political, social, and environmental activism. The aptly named Fashion=Activism: Rethink, Reuse, Respect, which runs from now through September 20, offers a dose of reality amid the runway season hoopla. Sponsored by Eileen Fisher and The North Face, the program includes interactions with textile activist and Pratt Institute faculty member Liz Collins, who will be transforming repurposed materials from Eileen Fisher’s “Green Eileen” take-back program into a large-scale sculpture.
