‘Cross-Pollination: Eco-Fashion: Going Green' Is Ingenious

The ‘Cross-Pollination: Eco-Fashion: Going Green’ report is the collaborative result of an initiative by Museum at FIT to have American and Mexican design students demonstrate “what eco-fashion means to them.”

The project involved tasking students from two separate schools in both countries with the creation of entirely eco-friendly clothing and resulted in three completely unique and utterly imaginative outfits as well as a 22-page report. Through the use of social media, each school group was able to share and explore their varying interpretations and definitions of sustainable fashion.  The best part about the ‘Cross-Pollination: Eco-Fashion: Going Green’ project, however, is that the report also doubles as a pattern that readers can use to make their own eco-friendly garment at their leisure.
