The global fashion industry is one of the most resource-intensive industries in the world. Emerging designers from the University of Minnesota’s College of Apparel Design program are reimagining this process in (RE)generation.
Inspired by WAM's exhibition Vanishing Ice, each student will present a ready-for-the-runway garment, focused on reusing and recycling of material. By considering all stages of production from material, construction, consumer use, and eventual disposal, these designers hope to shine a light on the ecological cost of the fashion industry and ultimately make changes for a healthier planet.
