The Local Fashion Global Impact (LFGI) project made it full circle this July!

Hoping to push our project forward mid-pandemic, I opted to use an online platform to auction off the skirts created by the students. Over the month the project raised $803.00. These funds will be used to order cotton from our weaving partners in Choa Cruz and to restock the natural dye laboratory. Skirts were purchased by members of the K-State family but also wonderful new people – thanks to Linda Lee at the Sewing Workshop – in New Mexico, Florida, and Ohio.

The project will continue in Textile Surface Manipulation course during the Fall semester. Students in this course will create goods inspired by the region that can go up for auction next year.
