Fresco ensemble - 2018

This ensemble worn by Louise O. Fresco on the occasion of the Opening of the Academic Year on September 3, 2018 highlights several circular innovations in the fashion industry. The dress is made of deadstock silk and designed with zero waste patterns to minimalize textile waste in the process of creating clothes. The print is hand dyed with rest ink, a waste product from conventional dyeing that produces this purple color. The shoes are Louise’s own shoes, upcycled with golden pineapple leather. The scarf is made of vegan peace silk and dyed with bacteria. The watch is Louise’s own with a new watch band made out of mycelium.
