Inspiring approaches to challenge textile waste on stage in New York.
Till April 23, at New York’s Cooper Hewitt museum get inspired by Scraps: Fashion, Textiles, and Creative Reuse. Offering creative, alternative approaches to confronting textile waste, this exhibition presents the work of three designers who put sustainability at the heart of their design process: Italian Luisa Cevese, founder of Riedizioni collection (Milan); American Christina Kim, founder of dosa line (Los Angeles); and Japanese Reiko Sudo, managing director at NUNO shop and cooperation (Tokyo).
Each designer’s practice involves innovative and sophisticated reuse of textile materials and resources, while engaging in the preservation of local craft traditions. Through more than forty works, the exhibition explores key facets of sustainability, such as the efficient use of materials and resources, the preservation of local craft traditions and the integration of new technologies in the recycling process.
