New York—Want to think more about how the clothes and accessories you wear are produced and their environmental impact? The Museum at FIT celebrates green fashion with “Eco-Fashion: Going Green,” running from May 25 through Nov 13. The show explores fashion’s relationship with the environment and celebrates designers who use, produce and/or promote sustainable, ethical and environmentally conscious products.
Featuring more than 100 garments, accessories and textiles from the mid-18th century to today, the show puts today’s eco-fashion movement in historical context. Visitors will learn about negative environmental practices used by designers over the years—from materials that hurt worker and wearer, or polluting manufacturing processes. For example, an acid green silk dress from 1860 featured a dyeing process that probably contained arsenic. The health and treatment of industry workers past and present are also explored.
More optimistic are current repurposing and textile recycling efforts, not to mention dyeing practices using benign natural plant dyes.
The Museum at FIT is located at 7th Avenue and 27th Street. Admission is free. www.fitnyc.edu/museum.
