A sponsored project through collaboration between Carhartt and the College for Creative Studies follows a complete design story of sustainability: to take reclaimed garments and/or material seconds previously considered unusable and innovate new silhouettes and treatments for application to products and environments. Create concepts and a “unique narrative” by exploring new design opportunities from the “reuse” of materials and garments destined for landfill. The goal of zero-waste design is at the core of this project. The team consists of : CMF Designers - Mary Elizabeth James, Nassim Haghighi Fashion Designers - Mikayla Hoak, Sophia Proen
