Zero-waste with Loomstate
This weekend The New York Times wrote about an exciting collaboration between Parsons and Loomstate, where Loomstate is partnering with an elective course, Zero Waste Garment. There are a couple of spaces left in the course so get in quickly if you would like to take part. The course details are:
Zero Waste Garment – 7133 – PUFD 2100 – A
This course presents a new way of exploiting and building upon the students’ existing design and technical skills with focus on sustainability in fashion design. It introduces the students to designing a garment without creating fabric waste in the process. In designing and producing a zero-waste garment, the students will develop a deeper understanding of the relationships between cloth, fashion design, patternmaking and draping, and in a broader sense, the connections between material, design process and final product. On completion the students will be able to utilize patternmaking and draping as tools for innovative, sustainable fashion design. In this course sustainability provides a tool for the students to examine their design practices in a critical light.
The course is open to BFA Fashion Design Juniors and Seniors, AAS Fashion Design and BFA Integrated Design Program students. For AAS FD and BFA IDP, the prerequisite to register for the course is Construction Design 1: Patternmaking, Draping & Sewing.
If you have any questions about the course, please contact Assistant Professor of Fashion Design and Sustainability Timo Rissanen on rissanet at newschool.edu
