Susan Lazear is Guest Speaker March 6!
Susan’s presentation is called Fashion Trends: From Sustainability to Innovation. Fashion is moving in many directions, from sustainability to smart textiles. Sustainability is a philosophy which encompasses being kind to our earth and minimizing human impact on our environment. In fashion this translates to organic fibers, recycling, slow fashion, upcycling, zero waste design, and better production decisions. Learn how these translate to fashion fibers, yarns, and clothing, and how we can play a part in making the world a better place for future generations. Learn also what is new in wearable technology and smart fabrics.
