Nature Versus Picture

"Nature Versus Picture," in the summer 2010 issue of Hue, features photos from a recent collaboration between Fashion Design - Knitwear and Photography and the Digital Image students. The knitwear students created "refurbished garments" (that is, tops and bottoms fashioned from discarded fabrics). Then two groups of photography students cast models, hired assistants, and spent a day photographing the eco-friendly clothes in the relative wilds of Manhattan's Inwood Hill Park. Both garments and photos were displayed at FIT's sustainability conference, Redesigning for a Sustainable Future, at the John E. Reeves Great Hall in April 2010.

A gallery of images from the project is at the right. Credits are below.
