Sustainability Design Concept Dress - Stains

Through primary research we found out that people don't wear clothes with stains. So even if only a small stain, they are most likely donating their whole garment to Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc. But the gap here? If they won't wear it, no one else is going to either. It most likely ends up in the landfill.

Solution: Focusing on hot spot areas (front, side and back), I designed a garment with removable and replaceable panels so the wearer does not have to replace the whole garment if only a small area is stained. She can simply take off a stained piece and replace it with another clean piece. The garment is also designed with "gutters" (by way of pin tucks) that catch liquid, centralize it, and move it towards the floor. This solution allows longer wearabililty and less landfill.

I got into the CCA Sustainability exhibit in November with this piece!

Here are the photos from the crit last week:

Givin' You Lip


Just to clear things up: this blog is not named after her. Her music is shit. But I do appreciate that she pushes conceptual fashion.

'It's the cheaper end cuts - not including her. You got about $100 of meat there,' said fellow butcher Mark Cacioppo.

The dress also came under fire from animal rights activists PETA [People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals].

I just think this is funny.

Hello School

2nd week back to school. And I'm already on E.

Finding Ferragamo

Finally found an outfit perfectly crafted for the vintage Ferragamo flats that I've been trying to wear:

My pants look very similar to Rodarte's plaid pants from their Spring 2011 collection shown this week at NY Fashion Week:

(every single piece of my outfit is vintage)
