Fall 2018 Apparel Production I students were instructed through a sustainable design project. The project utilized fabric made in Choa Cruz, Guatemala, courtesy of Zoe Schumm with 4 All Humanity, and was natural dyed with the leadership of Dr. Sherry Haar. The leave motifs were created with leaves from the K-State Tree Walk and the Manhattan City Park Tree Walk. Students work was on display for Global Women’s Entrepreneurship Week hosted by the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship at MSU. The project concluded with a panel discussion on Women’s Entrepreneurship and Sustainability in Kansas.
Students are currently completing their looks with donations from our panelist Linda Lee. Garments will be on display at the ATID Showcase of Excellence in the Spring.
