How do garments begin, how do they end, and how does the cycle of production, consumption, and disposal impact the world around us? This week, we take a closer look at the lifecycle of garments, an often overlooked aspect of fashion that many individuals and companies are addressing with growing urgency.
FASHION AS DESIGN is a new course by MoMA that explores a selection of garments from around the world—ranging from Kente cloth to jeans to 3D-printed dresses. Each week will begin with a conversation between the course instructors—Paola Antonelli, Michelle Fisher, and Stephanie Kramer—that introduces the themes, items, and questions that we will explore.
