This weekend, a sustainable style shoot—with a personal twist—is taking to the streets; called Local Wisdom, it is a “project intended to change the way the public thinks about, buys and wears fashion,” presented by Parsons The New School for Design and the Center for Sustainable Fashion at the London College of Fashion. Read more, via a press release, below.
Local Wisdom will invite members of the public to bring important pieces from their wardrobe to the Parsons campus for a community photo shoot, where the organizers will gather unique and moving stories about how people use and care for their clothing—unearthing the stories behind the clothes and the people that live in the global fashion capital that is New York City.
I love this project because it champions the story behind the style and it’s so closely aligned with PFF’s style series: Something Old, Something New.
Don’t live in New York? Not to worry, the project is coming to a city near year—that is if you will be in Vancouver, Melbourne, or London through 2014.
If you want to take part this Saturday, January 26, show up between 10 am – 4 pm at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, Parsons The New School for Design, located at 2 West 13th Street in New York.
