The Arts in the Libraries committee will host a program with Colleen Moretz, curator of the “Sustainable Fashion Design Exploration: Transformation to Zero-Waste” exhibit, and her students at 4 p.m. March 1 in Room 1020 of the Downtown Library.
The exhibit includes Moretz’s work alongside zero-waste designs by students in her fashion design management course.
“Sustainability has been at the center of my scholarship across the apparel and textile disciplines,” Moretz said. “Focusing my creative design scholarship on sustainability generates awareness of sustainable issues within the apparel industry to, hopefully, encourage change in fashion practices.
“This concentration on sustainability has been an evolution of investigating sustainable design processes through the exploration of transformation, aesthetics, zero-waste and up-cycling,” she added.
The exhibit will be on display at the Downtown Library through May 2023.
