Planet Indy: Zero-Waste is Sexy

Join sustainable fashion designer and author Timo Rissanen of Parsons School of Design, and Indianapolis’ own People for Urban Progress director Michael Bricker for a high-stakes conversation about designs that waste nothing. From apparel patterns that leave nothing on the cutting room floor or in the landfill, to repurposing colorful stadium seats to punctuate a cityscape, consider Indy’s place at the crossroads of design decisions as smart as they are sustainable. Moderated by Petra Slinkard, IMA Curatorial Associate, Textile and Fashion Arts.
