Exhibition: Diverting Fashion from Landfill
The Diverting Fashion from Landfill project called for fashion designers, fashion design students, innovators, manufacturers, menders and tailors from across the state willing to take in unwanted clothing and textiles to repair or make new products. SF State Apparel Design & Merchandising (ADM) students have participated in this project.
Funded by the San Francisco Department of the Environment (SFE) in partnership with the California Product Stewardship Council and Goodwill of the San Francisco Bay, the project aims to strengthen California’s sustainable efforts by increasing textile waste diversion and expanding opportunities for textile reuse, repair and renovation while encouraging greater awareness of the need for a circular textile economy.
All are welcome to view garments from the repair pilot, which will be showcased at this event in the SF State campus Library Events Room, LIB 121, on September 27 from 10 a.m. to noon. ADM students will continue to support the project in the coming semesters through their redesign of Goodwill donated garments. Be inspired to take action and understand the contributions you can make to support textile life extension.
