Eileen Fisher teams up with Parsons' students to give new life to damaged clothes from her previous collections.
On our minds is sustainable fashion veteran Eileen Fisher and her recent team up with three Parsons’ students with the aim to give new life to damaged clothes from her previous collections. Tackling common wear-and-tear defects like food stains, moth holes and torn inseams, the team came up with creative solutions involving plant-based dyeing, resewing and needle-felting and looked for large amounts of garments with similar flaws to make their Remade production scale-able. The result? A 500 one-off piece collection reducing waste whilst preserving the quality of the fabrics, made with commercially viable techniques available for sale at a Brooklyn pop up. For 2020, the brand’s vision is to reclaim 1 million of their garments produced. Watch videos of the team discussing their design process here.
