Parsons The New School for Design
Rogan Gregory and Scott Mackinlay Hahn's organic label Loomstate was among the first high-end brands to promote sustainable dressing. Happy to continue challenging the status quo, the company recently turned the concept of the designer collaboration on its head, teaming up with Parsons The New School for Design on a unique eco-educational project.
Through a course developed by Timo Rissanen, the school's assistant professor of Fashion Design and Sustainability, Hahn and Gregory personally guided students through the process of environmentally-friendly design, from sourcing earth-kind fabrics to integrating nontoxic dyes. Under their tutelage, recent Parsons grad Andria Crescioni created a versatile zero-waste anorak, which the Loomstate duo hand-picked to stock at Rogan's Bowery shop. It's the first entirely no-waste garment to be marketed under the Loomstate label, but it's limited-edition—so get thee to loomstate.org (or Rogan's downtown NYC location) ASAP to snag this one-of-a-kind piece of outerwear. Waste not—want, yes.
