Zero-Waste: Fashion Repatterned at Columbia College Chicago

This morning I'm in Chicago to do a workshop and a lecture to coincide with Zero-Waste: Fashion Repatterned, curated by Arti Sandhu at Columbia College Chicago, on show at A + D Gallery at Columbia College. The exhibition is open until April 16th so if you're in Chicago, make sure you check it out. I have a pyjama set in the exhibition that I made from two heavily damaged and repaired sheets that were part of my grandmother's dowry when she got married in Finland during the Second World War. The work draws from my chapter, Designing Endurance, in Shaping Sustainable Fashion. Other artists and designers in the exhibition include A Magazine, Nick Cave, Padmaja Krishnan, Maison Martin Margiela, Holly McQuillan, Derick Melander, and Refinity + Berber Soepboer. I can't wait to see it! More on the exhibition here.
