Waste Not

Unethical, mass-produced, fast fashion is a global reality of our times, but students and graduates of Poznań’s School of Form are finding resourceful ways to challenge it. By manipulating the ready-made, slowing the pace of design and manufacture - while delving back into Poland’s traditional crafts - they aim to lessen its destructive force. Seeking a balance between contemporary luxe and the communist-era kitsch rejected by their parents, ‘Waste Not’ showcases their talents in sewing and construction to crochet and macramé, in a collection that mixes craft, tribal aesthetics and global trends.
