As the warm weather returns I find myself wondering what is to come for Nica Annette with the change of the seasons and the sprouting of the seedlings in my dye garden. I am also thinking back to summers past. It has almost been an entire year since my trip last summer to Beijing where I represented Parsons in the Izzue x Tsinghua Fashion Design Awards.
There were 12 of us, each representing the top design schools around the globe. We were tasked with deconstructing and reconstructing new garments from, Hong Kong retailer, Izzue's archive with only 14 hours. I created two zero waste garments and a color blocked beanie with riot grrrls in mind.
