Rogan Gregory and Scott Mackinley Hahn, the owners of the organic fashion brand Loomstate, decided to take the gamble, challenging a class at Parsons the New School for Design to create garments with zero waste.
The students’ work was whittled down to five finalists, with the winner—a loose-fitting anorak with dolman sleeves by Andria Crescioni—chosen at a Parsons exhibition on zero waste. Along the way, Gregory and Hahn coached the class, led by Timo Rissanen, on methods of construction and Loomstate’s style. The key was to maximize a single piece of cloth, using the scraps for pockets and cuffs and external details
The anorak is available in limited quantities for $345.
Not crazy about that price point. And not sure I get why it’s a “limited quantities” situation, which implies that this was a bit of a publicity stunt. But still: Two cheers, right? And nice job by the students…
