Loomstate's "Zero-Waste" Student-Collab Aces The Eco-Friendly Fashion Test


Imagine being a young designer, fresh out of design school, and having the opportunity to collaborate on a garment with New York design royalty. For one very lucky Parsons student, this too-good-to-be-true privilege is real, and coming to life in an (adorable!) eco-friendly collection designed alongside Loomstate's Rogan Gregory and Scott Mackinlay Hahn.
The first ever "zero-waste" line of imaginative cuts and silhouettes not only keeps in mind the need for unique winter wear, but also prioritizes Mother Nature — every slice of fabric that's purchased must be used in one way or another. The idea is legitimately to not let any resource from the production process go to waste.
The collab came to be as part of a contest in a Fashion Design and Sustainability class at the renowned design school. The winning product, a chic gray and green anorak, dreamed up by recent grad, Andira Crescioni, is now available at Rogan and Loomstate’s online store. With organic denim, thoughtful patterns, and a classic fit, these are the kinds of pieces you'll wear for seasons to come. Talk about sustainable fashion!
