Collaborating with eco-friendly fashion label Loomstate, students from the Parsons The New School for Design recently created a curriculum based on zero-waste design with a focus on denim. The course, mentored by Loomstate's Scott Mackinlay and Rogan Gregory, serves to educate students about sourcing, dyeing and employing sustainable denim from responsible sources.

Culminating with the selection of Andria Crescioni's winning design, the young designer used the tools learned through the course to create an anorak that will be produced as part of Loomstate's Fall 2011 collection.

To highlight the importance of socially and environmentally responsible design and to showcase the fruits of the collaboration, the works from the program will be on display at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center through 23 February 2010.
