Scraps: Fashion, Textiles, and Creative Reuse will present three designers’ approaches to the shockingly high human and environmental costs of textile and apparel production. Please join us for a discussion with the designers featured in the exhibition––Christina Kim, founder of Los Angeles–based fashion brand dosa; Reiko Sudo, director of Tokyo textile design firm Nuno; and Luisa Cevese, founder of the Milan-based home goods company Riedizioni––in conversation with Matilda McQuaid, Deputy Curatorial Director and Head of Textiles at Cooper Hewitt. Inspired by ancient traditions of reuse and a respect for scraps as repositories of materials, labor, and creativity, each designer has developed innovative solutions for curbing textile waste.
