Sustainability in fashion design can be explored through a myriad of approaches, from materials selection to making processes to considerations of garment-in-use to possibilities regarding end-of-life. The is the first comprehensive survey of zero-waste designers in the world. The exhibition will open in New Zealand at The New Dowse in March 2011 and New York at the Textile Arts Center, Brooklyn, New York in September 2011 See More

"Hi Holly, I enjoyed reading your Wordpress articles and the pic of your World (NZ) jacket. Very close to my All-Black tartan. Zero waste begins with the choice of fabric. Wool is a naturally-occurring by-product of a food source - use it or waste…"

Thanks Holly! Yes, it's very exciting to have the website up and live. Now the hard work begins! I will definitely be talking about your technique so hopefully I can send a few people your way soon. I met with Laurie Foon last week and she mentioned your zero waste as an influence in their summer collection, which I thought was great.

Hi Holly, I enjoyed reading your Wordpress articles and the pic of your World (NZ) jacket. Very close to my All-Black tartan. Zero waste begins with the choice of fabric. Wool is a naturally-occurring by-product of a food source - use it or waste it. Sustainable, eco-friendly, long-lasting, with no waste of valuable water supply in production. In the form of tartan it becomes a fashion fabric. NZ should be world leaders.
