New York, New York.

workshops at Parsons the New School supported by DWIH

We are excited to share that DWIH New York has graciously invited us to New York to host a workshop at Parsons The New School, coupled with a networking event on Thursday.

In collaboration with Parsons Professor and textile designer, Victoria Manganiello, I will be hosting two workshops at Parsons the New School. These zero-waste techniques in fashion workshop is a unique opportunity to dive into the world of sustainable fashion and explore the principles of zero-waste design.

The workshop will begin with a lecture introducing sustainable fashion and zero-waste design principles, followed by a zero-waste design sprint to get acquainted with the concept in general. Participants will then form small groups to brainstorm and design waste-free garments using three-dimensional fabric techniques. In one workshop we are looking to develop digital sketches of zero-waste items, providing a hands-on experience and deeper understanding of zero-waste design techniques.

We are excited to share insights into sustainable fashion and practical skills to approach innovative ideas to design garments that leave a minimal environmental footprint.

On Thursday we will also be part of an exhibition and get-together at Victoria's studio hosted with the support of the DWIH, showcasing different approaches towards sustainable and social design with Intertwine Arts, aiming to promote accessibility in the arts, as well as champion the legitimacy of disabled weavers in the art world, Craftswork, a multidisciplinary design and art studio exploring the nature of textiles and technology through storytelling, material-based research and installations, and our work of researching zero-waste solutions and fashion beyond circularity.

For all interested in sustainable fashion, we are happy to invite you to join our get-together and studio show scheduled for March 7, from 6 to 8 PM in Brooklyn. Please ensure to RSVP to secure your spot.
