Eco-Fashion: Going Green

Costello Tagliapietra dress

On View at The Museum at FIT in New York
May 26 Through November 13, 2010

The current exhibit of eco-fashion at the Museum at FIT
covers some exciting new technologies such as AirDye
(a printing method using heat transfer not water) and includes
fashion from the 18th century to today.

These are some of the categories on display:

  • repurposing and recycling of materials
  • material origins
  • textile dyeing and production
  • quality of craftsmanship s
  • labor practices
  • treatment of animals

Each Costello Tagliapietra dress dyed and printed with AirDye technology will save: 45 gallons of water / 95 megajoules of energy / 3 kilograms of greenhouse gas
